Places like Hveravellir, Landmannalaugar and of course Gullfoss and Geysir are on our program and at these destinations, more adventures await: hiking in snowshoes through landscapes that are held in winter’s frozen grips and open air baths in natural hot springs. Waterfalls may form magical sculptures from water and ice and vapor clouds bursting out from earth’s interior, solfataras, mud pots, and geysers are strangely spectacular in the winter season.
