Things to Do in Iceland in Winter

By Katie H, December 2012

No reviews, be the first!

Despite its name, Iceland doesn’t get as cold in the winter as you might expect. It’s still quite chilly but you’ll find temperatures rarely dip below 20° F so you can still enjoy all that the country has to offer without worrying about frostbite. You can even comfortably stroll the ice-free sidewalks (which are heated) of Reykjavik, shopping and visiting some of the history, culture and art museums in the compact city center.

Outdoors, there are plenty of great winter options. A soak in the Blue Lagoon may be one of the most surreal; there’s no feeling quiet like sitting in the steaming hot, milky blue water of the lagoon while snow falls around you.
