I have a rare week off after the holidays (Dec 31-Jan 7). My boyfriend and I want to take advantage of this and take a trip to Iceland. It is looking like we would have 4 nights there. Arriving early on the 1st and leaving early on the 5th.
I am nervous because I heard there is about 4 hours of daylight during this time of year. Is this trip worth it? I want to see the northern lights (bucket list) and we love the snow! We heard that Iceland in the winter is a different type of magic.
Are the snowmobiling tours, ice caving tours, etc still going to be happening with that small of a window of daylight?
Is it worth it to base out of Reykjavik?
Should we do planned tours vs driving ourselves?
All suggestions, opinions, etc welcome!
