Most people that visit Iceland go in the summer, but there's a whole other side to this place in the winter months. (It is called "Iceland," after all.) Spend the first five days doing really cool things like hiking glaciers, snowshoeing through ažingvellir National Park, reflecting on life under the Northern Lights, and warming up in hot springs. Then spend two days in exploring colourful, cool Reykjavak. See another side of this amazing country.
