Add a thrilling excursion to your vacation in Iceland with this unique ocean jumping activity in Akranes. Travelers keen for an exhilarating experience launching themself from platforms into the sea should book this excursion now.

Your meet-on-location adventure takes place in Akranes on Iceland's West Coast. It's around 68 miles (109 kilometers) north of Reykjavik on the edge of the Atlantic Ocean.

The drive from Reykjavik takes you around Hvalfjordur, a stunning 38-mile (62-kilometer) fjord with volcanic mountains, forested areas, and a hiking trail. Its name translates to 'Whale Fjord,' although it's not known for its dolphin or whale populations.

After a scenic drive, you'll arrive at Hoppland, the location for today's exciting activity. It's at the end of Akranes town, looking out over the vast Atlantic Ocean and not far from the Akranes lighthouse.

Upon arrival, you'll greet your friendly hosts, who will prepare you for an exhilarating experience. Today, you can jump from platforms into the sea to your heart's content. Prepare to unleash your inner child as you embrace the chilly waters in the name of fun!

Anyone in good physical health with a sense of adventure can join. You should also be able to swim a short distance from the water back to the jetty. 

Hoppland provides wetsuits in all sizes, making this a family-friendly activity. Wetsuit gloves and hoods will also help you brace for the cold. The best part is that you can warm up in the hot tubs between jumps, making it possible to go again and again!

You can launch yourself into the sea from a 33-foot (10-meter) high platform, about the height of a high diving board. 

Don't worry if this seems too scary! There are four different ledge heights, so you can progressively increase your height as you feel more confident. Those who want the gentlest option can leap straight from the jetty's edge into the sea.

The platforms are designed so that you can jump at the same time as your friends and family if you wish. You'll even find a trampoline to spring yourself from and a giant blob to send your friends flying!

If you don't know what a blob is, it's a long inflatable that sits on the water. Your friend or family member can sit on the end of the blob while you leap onto the front of it. 

The result? Your landing will catapult your friend off the blob and into the water. You cannot have much more fun than this!

Experiment with different tricks, from somersaults to dives, or create your own style. However you decide to jump, you're guaranteed a memorable experience.

You can dry off and continue your adventures in Iceland when you've had enough.

Don't miss the chance to try a unique, affordable, and family-friendly activity, jumping from platforms into the ocean by booking this adrenaline-pumping excursion. Check availability now by choosing a date.
