All This Included
Iceland's otherworldly aura seems to heighten at the winter months, when viewing of the Northern Lights is at its peak and the contrast between the cool, crisp air and its steaming geothermic hot springs heightens. Couple that with hiking through Þingvellir National Park, visiting horse farms, exploring lava caves, and chasing waterfalls, and you've got yourself a spectacular winter adventure like no other.
