Iceland offers a surprising range of contrasting attractions and activities during the winter time. Whether you are looking for a thrilling winter adventure or a relaxing holiday getaway, Icelandic winters offer ample opportunities for both. Reserve a rental car in Iceland to explore all of its winter wonders.
One of the most astounding things about Iceland in the winter is the beauty of its unique natural landscape. Witness its many spectacular waterfalls bound in ice. Stay up late and watch the colorful Aurora Borealis light up the dark arctic skies. Reserve a 4x4 car hire in Iceland and explore a world of winter wonderland.
Iceland's capital, Reykjavik, has one of the most fantastic New Year's weekend celebrations. Plan your visit in early January and enjoy the city dotted with public bonfires and amazing firework shows across the arctic sky.
Explore Iceland's natural wonders at its national parks and protected areas, and try some winter sports. Plan to visit places such as Pingvellir National Park, the Great Geysir, Gullfoss Waterfall, Lake Myvatn, Dettifoss waterfall, and many more.
If you are visiting Iceland in the winter with your family there are plenty of family activities to enjoy. Visit the Reykjavik Zoo and Family Park for a very unique zoo experience. Unlike many zoos elsewhere in the world filled with exotic animals walled-off from tourists, the Reykjavik Zoo features mostly local farm animals, and you can get up close and personal with them. This is great fun for the kiddies. They will also enjoy the tiny Icelandic horses, which they can feed or ride around a little paddock.
