Does playing golf at midnight surrounded by a lava field and an open view of glaciers sound too strange to be true? Not in Iceland!

Icelanders are ga-ga for golf and over the years have created more than a dozen 18-hole courses and more than four dozen 9-hole links with some of the most incredible scenery in the entire golfing world.

Iceland ProTravel can organize an Iceland vacation that combines tee times with other outdoor adventures like glacier walks, geyser viewing and hot springs soaking.

Golfing under the midnight sun is possible during the summer because of Iceland’s extreme northerly location. Golfers can also drive, chip and put among fantastic volcanic landscapes and an island where one-tenth of the surface is covered in lava.

Visiting duffers can also participate in the Arctic Open. Hosted by Akureyri Golf Club, this international pro-am event attracts golfers from all over the world.
