Iceland is awe-inspiring at any time of year. Massive glaciers and ice caves, volcanoes, geothermal wonders. Add to this the mesmerizing display of northern lights undulating across the arctic winter sky—we keep our fingers crossed for clear night skies giving way to those dancing lights. Embrace the chill in the air and be rewarded with Iceland's winter majesty.
- 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, then walk into the heart of a crystal ice cave
- Marvel at the aurora borealis in one of the world's best spots to experience the magic of the northern lights—if luck is on our side!
- 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 Travel from the capital Reykjavík to take your first walk (or snowshoe) in Thingvellir National Park, a World Heritage site | Explore a stunning valley in the Hengill geothermal hiking area, taking in views of Lake Thingvallavatn, the largest natural lake in Iceland.
Days 2-3 Snowshoe or hike among hidden mudpots in Nesjavellir Valley, witnessing firsthand the power of renewable geothermal energy | Ride aboard a private "super jeep" to explore a remote and rocky road past frozen waterfalls and canyons near the active Katla Volcano | Discover hidden valleys and beaches on foot | After a day in this wintry wonderland, warm up with a relaxing soak in an outdoor geothermal hot tub.
Day 4 With ice ax in hand, don crampons for an unforgettable glacier ice walk with our local mountain guides at Sólheimajökull Glacier | Navigate through the blue-and-black ice walls of Mýrdalsjökull Glacier’s alien-like ice cave.
Days 5-6 En route to the small fishing village of Vík, stop at Reynisfjara—a vast and stunning black-sand beach | Stroll along the coast, taking in views of sea stacks, black cliffs and Dyrhólaey’s famous arch | At thundering Skógafoss waterfall, the Skóga River puts on a breathtaking winter spectacle as it plunges over nearly 200-foot high ice-crusted cliffs | Hike or snowshoe in Reykjadalur (the "smoky valley") amid bizarre rock formations, a hanging valley lined with hot springs, bubbling hot pools and steam vents.
