Type of tour
Experience Iceland in winter with its great Northern lights, snowstorms, whiteouts, wind and storms that you never experienced before in your live among the Icelanders living their daily routine. Skies full of stars, short days and a unique athmosphere with the locals exploring, sights, volcanoes, glaciers, frozen waterfalls and caves followed by a hot bath in the Blue lagoon or local natural outdoor hot spring pools. Drive on 4wd jeeps through the snow, ice and rivers.

The southerly lowlands of the island average around 0 C (32 F) in winter, while the highlands tend to average around −10 °C (14 °F). he prevailing wind direction is easterly. Westerlies are very infrequent. Wind speed frequently reaches 18 m/s (59 ft/s); on stormy days it averages 50 m/s (164 ft/s). Heavy dust or snow storms can be generated by strong glacials winds, and can be very strong. The island lies in the path of the North Atlantic current which makes the climate of the island more temperate than would be expected for its latitude just south of the Arctic circle.
