Iceland Adventure, Day One | Scuba Diver Mag

Scuba Diver Editorial Director Mark Evans is in Iceland with the clan – wife Penney and 15-year-old son Luke – in tow, on an epic seven-day odyssey with Arctic Adventures.

After a ridiculously early 3am check-in at Luton, the flight to Iceland was swiftly despatched in a few hours, with us touching down at just before 8am. We were straight on the road with Arctic Adventures’ Eliska, who picked us up in a pimped-up off-road Toyota Landcruiser – much to the delight of Luke.

The day then saw us take in a series of impressive waterfalls, including the magnificent Seljalandsfoss, which falls some 60 metres over an old sea cliff. What makes this even more impressive is the fact that you can walk right around behind the falls, just make sure you have waterproofs on as you will get wet from the spray!
