The Land of Fire and Ice is awe-inspiring at any time of year. Massive glaciers and lava caves, active volcanoes, geothermal wonders. But that's just the tip of the iceberg! Add to this remarkable setting a mesmerizing display of the northern lights. Colorful bands of green, yellow, pink and violet undulating across an arctic winter sky. You have to see it to believe it. Begin your mornings with yoga, embrace the chill in the air and the crunch of snow underfoot and be rewarded with the wonders of Iceland's winter majesty.
- Marvel at the shifting colors of the aurora borealis dancing across a starry winter sky—if luck and the weather are on our side!
- Discover the full diversity of Iceland's raw and wild landscape, where Mother Nature's drama is on full display
- Ice-walk on a glacier for an up-close perspective of glacial ice, replete with a knowledgeable guide, ice ax and crampons
- NEW This Backroads trip includes optional yoga in the morning and/or afternoon, led by a Backroads Trip Leader, a certified yoga instructor.
Day 1 Situated just below the Arctic Circle, Iceland is among the world's best vantage points from which to take in the magic of the northern lights | Frigid water rushes past dramatic icicles and jagged lava rock into turquoise pools below the semi-frozen cascades of Barnafoss and Hraunafoss | Explore the otherworldly ice tunnels and caves beneath Langjökull, Iceland's second-largest glacier | Roll out your yoga mat for an afternoon session at the hotel.
Days 2-3 Discover Vidgelmir Cave, among the planet's largest lava tubes | Venture into the realm of bubbling mud pools and thermal rivers | Warm up with afternoon yoga—perhaps a god of fire pose is in order! | Take in views of Lake Thingvallavatn, the largest natural lake in Iceland | Walk or snowshoe in Thingvellir National Park, a World Heritage site and symbolic heart of the Icelandic nation | Relish the unique perspective winter offers at iconic sites in the Golden Circle.
Day 4 Meet up for sun salutations in a morning yoga session before your day on the ice | Ride aboard a super jeep across rocky lava beds, glacial outflows and rivers near Katla Volcano | Discover Thórsmörk, a rugged alpine wonderland of majestic mountains and pristine valleys | Hike or snowshoe amid bizarre rock formations, frozen waterfalls, caves and forests.
Days 5-6 Treat your mind and body to a morning yoga practice at our hotel | Ice ax in hand, don crampons for an unforgettable glacier ice walk | At thundering Skógafoss, the Skógá River puts on a breathtaking winter spectacle as it plunges over nearly 200-foot ice-crusted cliffs | Soak in the mineral-rich waters of the famed, geothermally heated Blue Lagoon.
