Volcano Flights in Iceland

If you're planning to visit Iceland this autumn/winter to see the marvellous natural attractions and the amazing Northern Lights, why not add a fiery twist to your break with a helicopter flight to see a live volcano?

Three weeks ago, Iceland's erupting volcanoes were big news but, as it became clear that the activity was localised to a remote inland region of the country, the story disappeared from the headlines. With Iceland's Northern Lights season now taking hold, however, the country is ready to make the front pages of the travel supplements once again so, when you are planning your holiday in Iceland with the Mighty Fine Company, why not turn up the heat and ask our travel team about booking a helicopter flight to see a live volcano? It's sure to be a fire cracker of a trip!

Ice Cold in Norway

When Norwegian Lars Christian Rødal was asked to do the Ice Bucket Challenge by a friend in Scotland, he decided to take things a little further than expected, replacing the bucket with a 7000 litre cement mixer full of ice cold water!

Lars, a cement mixer driver by profession, used his truck for a unique take on the challenge that's been sweeping the world. Taking 30 minutes to fill and just 30 seconds to empty, the cement mixer left Lars feeling a little numb! “It hurt! I lost feeling all over my body,” he told the local press.

Readers are advised not to try this at home! If you want to challenge yourself and experience the chill of Norway, take a look at our fabulous, winter, multi-activity holidays !
