    Hi Katie,

    Iceland is such a fantastic destination!!!

    The thing to keep in mind though is that the activities available in summer (ie hiking and whale watching) are vastly different than those available in winter (glacier walking, snowmobile, etc).

    I have only ever visited in the winter and love the country at this time of year. I wrote a blog post which covers most things you can do from Reykjavik: http://www.aforkinlondon.com/post/70208877721/iceland

    I would highly suggest an aurora chase, snorkeling in the Sifra Rift (continental divide) and lava caving.

    Have a great trip!

    Peter has you on the right track, for sure. I would also try a visit to Jökulsárlón Floating Icebergs. You also may be able to do a glacier tour with Glacier Guides at one of the glaciers near Skaftafell National Park. Black Waterfall (aka Svartifoss) will probably be frozen solid, but I still think it would be cool to see.

    Hey Katie,

    cool someone from Kent, WA. I will go there mid January for a project. Maybe see you for a coffee. Always happy to meet fellow travelers...

    Well since you are from the PNW, you are used to some cold weather and you should hope for some cold nights. If you haven't seen it live, I would recommend you watching the northeren lights. And as colder the temperature outside, as brighter they show. When its dark go somewhere where you have a clear sky. Go away from the cities and outside where you can see the stars and also watch the lights.

    There also tours available. But I dont have any recommendations on that. Just google it I guess or ask at the hotel where you stay. I am sure they can recommend you one.


    Go whale watching. http://icewhale.is/

    or on a glacier tour. http://www.glacierguides.is/


    Well that are my plans at least for the next iceland trip :)

    Just curious, do you use Iceland Air stopover option for your 6 nights?
