There are only a few places left in this world that are still as raw and untouched as the beautiful Nordic country of Iceland.
By Manuela Jungo
As soon as I touched ground in Iceland, I realised that this trip was going to be amazing. The people are very friendly and everything is well organised. I had a long list of things I wanted to do and see, so I planned to get busy straight away.
I had high expectations for the trip but certainly wasn’t disappointed. The mystical environment and magical landscapes were overwhelming to see in person.
As well as all the hiking to waterfalls and scenic places, I found a vast number of places to unpack my inflatable SUP and go for a paddle. Whether paddling alongside dramatic glaciers in emerald green water or paddling along fjords, rivers and waterfalls, Iceland is the ideal place for any paddler with a spirit for adventure.
If you’ve never been to Iceland, or even considered it for stand up paddle boarding, then my advice is to get on a plane and visit. You won’t be disappointed, as you can see from the photos.
With still so many untouched and wild places on this Earth, just begging you to go for a paddle and discover these paradisiacal spots for yourself, Iceland sits as one of my top SUP destinations and locations in general. If you’re still yet to be convinced then go check it out for yourself, you’ll be glad you did.
