Winter Adventures in Iceland

Snowshoeing, Hiking, and Sky Gazing

Repertory Trip: Next Offered November 11-18, 2022

Overview

Winter is a magical season in Iceland, with far fewer visitors, a snow-dusted landscape, and the chance to see the northern lights! Our winter adventure brims with outdoor escapades, and we’ve timed the journey to give us plenty of daylight hours to enjoy our activities. We’ll snowshoe along lava fields with sweeping vistas across the coast, cross an icy glacier with crampons (no experience necessary), explore World Heritage-listed Thingvellir National Park, soak in thermal pools, walk down into a giant lava tube, and hike to some of Iceland’s most legendary waterfalls, including Seljalandsfoss and Skógafoss. As night falls, we search for the spectacular blue, green, and violet arcs shimmering across the sky above us. We’ve selected hotels in the best spots for seeing the aurora!
