Iceland In Winter

Visiting Iceland in winter gives you the best chance to see the Northern Lights in Iceland, but there are many other adventurous things to do on your trip too!

Considering there are over 130 volcanoes, it's no wonder you can find a number of geothermal pools around Iceland. You can spend a full day at popular ones like the Sky Lagoon, even in winter.

Ice Cave Tours

The winter months are the only time of year when exploring inside ice caves is safe. Ice caving is a phenomenal experience and requires a guide to be done safely.

Northern Lights Tours

On your trip to see the Northern Lights in Iceland, you'll need clear skies. Seeing the green lights of the Aurora Borealis is nothing less than spectacular.

Blue Lagoon

The Blue Lagoon is the most popular thing to do when you travel to Iceland. While there, you can find pools, a cave, bridges, a waterfall, saunas, a water massage area, & a swim-up bar.

Try any number of outdoor activities like a snowmobile tour, winter horseback riding, or hiking to frozen waterfalls. Enjoy the best sunrises & sunsets in winter that last forever.

Winter Activities

Glacier Hiking

When you book a glacier hike tour, you can hike across a glacier on top of a volcano! Stay with your guide and be prepared to be amazed!

Great Deals

In winter, you are more likely to find fantastic travel deals! Hotels offer discounted prices, tours aren't as crowded, and you can usually find great flight deals, too.

Driving in Iceland in winter can be challenging. If where you want to go requires a 4x4, I recommend booking tours instead!
