When you think of Iceland you think of, well, ice. And so you think of freezing temperatures and short days. While true, that is only one small part of this enchanting country’s beauty. We challenge you to find a more lovely place to explore Blue Ice Caves or go dog sledding. Trust us, no place else compares to Iceland’s natural wonder.
We chose four of our favorite Icelandic winter adventures to share with you.
The Blue Ice Caves
Winter, mid-November to mid-March each year, is the perfect time to explore the Blue Ice Caves. That is when the ice is the most stable. If you plan to visit the glacial caves, be sure to book a tour guide. The caves are ever changing and while an experienced tour guide can safely guide you along the icy expanses, going alone is dangerous.
The Blue Lagoon
The geothermal spas of the Blue Lagoon are rejuvenating and the Blue Lagoon is enchanting. Experience the intense blue waters of the hot springs, hot pools, and hot pots found in this region of Iceland.
Dog sledding in Iceland is a one-of-a-kind adventure. There are tours for every level of interest, from short rides to all-inclusive experiences. You are sure to fall in love with these dogs and the incredible beauty of Iceland.
Explore the Glaciers on Snowmobiles
If you want to explore the glaciers without exerting too much energy, snowmobiles are the answer. Spend an hour or two racing across the glaciers for a unique adventure. Your guides will show you the best views. Skiing and snowshoe trekking is also available.
Whether you chose a rejuvenating holiday at the Blue Lagoon or a unique adventure on the glaciers, Iceland will offer you the best winter holiday possible. Come stay with us and explore the natural beauty of the country for yourself!
