Iceland early december visit

Jump to last reply

I am planning a trip to Iceland in early December for 7 days (days 1 and 7 are arrival and departure so limited activity time). It will be my fiancée and myself. I’ve been devouring the information on this forum, as well as other internet sites in preparation, which has proven most beneficial. Initially we planned to rent a vehicle and travel on pour own, traversing the Ring Road, however the winter driving discussion has caused me to put this idea aside. Although we live in the mountains of Pennsylvania, and as much as I loathe group tours, I don’t think it’s wise to drive and put ourselves and other people at risk based on the description of the high wind and ice conditions.

This leaves me in a quandary. There are an incredible number of tour operators from which to choose, which is the basis for my post. Perhaps if I list the activities we would like to experience, recommendations may be offered for me to review and narrow my choices.
Number one on the list are the Northern Lights. I have read it is best to stay outside the city. We would also like to have multiple opportunities to see the Lights in the event the first evening is not cooperative from a weather perspective.
Other experiences we want to enjoy in this stunning country are:
• Blue Lagoon
• Other lagoons
• Golden Circle
• Geysers
• Waterfalls
• Glaciers
• Ice caves
• Whale watching
• Geothermal spa bathing
• Ring Road
• Snowmobiling

We have not made reservations for accommodations, so please also advise on this, as based on the activities we may want to stay in multiple cities.
Thanks you in advance for your advice.
