Winter Activity Holidays in Iceland

Iceland conjures up images of huge waterfalls, glaciers, spouting geysers and steaming hot pools. This country is almost custom made for winter adventure holidays with an endless landscape waiting to be discovered. The best way to venture into the wilderness is snowshoeing or cave and glacier exploration.
Reykjavik is a small but beautiful city and provides the start and end point of most itineraries. And no holiday to Iceland would be complete without a visit to the steaming waters of the Blue Lagoon.
Join one of our exciting winter adventures and see everything Iceland has to offer.

Northern Lights

The breathtaking Northern Lights (Aurora Borealis) are regularly seen from November to late April on clear nights in latitudes close to the Arctic Circle. Look out for our special Iceland winter holiday dedicated to searching for the Northern Lights, as dates are scheduled for when the moon is less visible therefore maximising our chances for a spectacular light show. 

Temperatures & daylight hours

Average daytime temperatures in Reykjavik are between 0º and -5º C whereas inland, it can be several degrees colder and in windy weather, which is common, the wind-chill factor can be significant. We suggest you check our Trip Notes for your chosen destination or our latest snow report.
