Thanks to our own facilities, experienced staff and co-operation with some of Iceland’s most respected tour providers, we are able to offer our guests a wide variety of activities and tours.

The following program activity guide is divided into four sections:

  • Earth – focuses on hiking, running, biking and other bipedal adventures.
  • Water – focuses on sailing, paddling, fishing and other water based adventures.
  • Wind – focuses on guided adventures by coach, boat or horse.
  • Fire – focuses on extreme sports, traditional sports and crafts and mixed adventures.

Even though many of the activities could belong to more than one section, they will only appear in one.

Our program activity guide is based around groups of 20 or more. For smaller groups, please contact our program office at elin@skatar.is. Also be sure to check out our package deals!

Activities also offered to families and individuals are easily recognized by a coloured “F/I”-box in their listing.

Some activities are subject to availability.
