Visiting Iceland in the dead of winter

Jump to last reply

We will be travelling to Iceland in the dead of winter! We are staying 4 nights between Hella and Hvolsvollur, and 3 nights in Reykjavik. With so little daylight, how should we plan to see the sights such as Vestmannaeyjar, Jokularsarlon, Fimmvorduhals, Golden Circle, etc.? Should we plan on driving during the day before the sun rises to be at our destination during daylight?

Also, what time to people generally rise and go to bed when daylight is only 4 hours long?

Really looking forward to this unique adventure!
Many thanks.
