Welcome to this private winter trip in Iceland! An adventure like no other, we can guarantee that there’s no better way to explore the country’s diverse landscape than with a combination of winter activities!

You’ll journey to the South Coast of Iceland to witness the awe-inspiring natural wonders of its waterfalls, the black sand beach and the iconic glacier lagoons. Finally, you’ll explore the magical ice caves, admiring the frozen formations that can only be found in this winter wonderland before heading back towards Reykjavík.

This 7 day trip will lead you through a deeper, more profound experience of the Icelandic winter wonderland. You’ll explore the majestic land of Kerlingarfjöll (the “Giantess Mountain“) that remained unexplored for centuries, and the alpine scenery of this region covered on white powdered snow. You will enjoy the hot natural pools after a long day of snowshoeing in the untamed wilderness.

If the weather allows, we will wander along the countless waterfalls in the Icelandic South Coast & we will have a full-day adventure towards the glacier’s icy depths, where towering ice walls and sparkling blue formations seem to glow in the dim light.
