January and Northern Lights in Iceland

Snowy and cold, January is a sometimes strenuous but often highly-rewarding time for travelers to Iceland. Weather can be unpredictable in the middle of winter, with blizzards and extreme winds a common occurrence. On clear, crispy nights, it is though possible to experience some mesmerizing northern lights, and the contrast with the heavily snowy grounds will make your Aurora shots shine. Choose a combo tour including admission to a geothermal spa followed by a northern lights hunt: the steamy waters will leave you energized for your winter night adventure.

In the middle of winter, temperatures are normally well below 0°C in the wilderness of Iceland. Conditions are therefore perfect for exploring the breath-taking Glacier Lagoon Jökulsárlón at its best, and visiting a natural ice cave under Vatnajökull, the largest glacier in Europe. A true once in a lifetime experience awaits you there!
