Most people that visit Iceland go in the summer, but there’s a whole other side to this place in the winter months. (It is called “Iceland,” after all.) Spend the first five days doing really cool things like hiking glaciers, snowshoeing through Þingvellir National Park, reflecting on life under the Northern Lights, and warming up in hot springs. Then spend two days in exploring colourful, cool Reykjavík. See another side of this amazing country.
Explore Iceland's glaciers and waterfalls, keep your eyes peeled for dazzling displays of the Northern Lights, soak your muscles in natural hot springs, explore Reykjavík at your own pace.
