Iceland is a strange place. It’s one of those few places that have a peak season year-round. Personally, I think Iceland is amazing in the winter, I mean you have a chance of seeing the northern lights. However, planning a trip to Iceland can be confusing and a bit intimidating, especially in the winter. With extreme temperatures, weather, location restrictions, and safety concerns it’s hard to know where to start. For me, the hardest part was dealing with the lack of daylight while traveling in the winter. I felt like I was driving in the dark half the time, but don’t let that stop you! This Iceland winter itinerary was created and used by the Wandering Chocobo and is the perfect way for an independent traveler to see all the major highlights of Iceland in winter while bossing the icy road conditions and lack of daylight. Some of the best highlights in this guide are Fjaðrárgljúfur Canyon, a secret thermal lagoon, the golden circle, DC plane crash, black sand beach, Reykjavik and Skaftafell National Park.This is your one-stop guide to the perfect winter getaway in Iceland.
