TRAVELLING TO ICELAND IN FEBRUARY
February is a fantastic month to visit Iceland to experience the quieter side of the country. There's lighter traffic for driving, fewer visitors at the major tourist attractions and better availability of accommodations in February. Not everything is quiet, though — the city centre of Reykjavik stays lively with an abundance of cafes, bars, restaurants, museums, shops, thermal swimming pools and cultural events such as the Winter Lights Festival.
Even with the short daylight hours and snowfall in February, you can still visit many of Iceland’s top natural attractions, including waterfalls, glaciers, hot springs, lava fields, geothermal spas and more. And of course, nature’s biggest attraction in Iceland this time of year is the aurora borealis — better known as the northern lights, which you may get to see dancing over snowy landscapes in the night sky.
Short breaks in Reykjavik with pre-planned guided day tours are popular at this time of year, as are week-long road trips in South and West Iceland. With 10 days or longer, it’s also possible to drive around the entire Ring Road in February. Don’t want to drive in winter conditions? Small group tours with local guides are another great idea for experiencing Iceland’s countryside and northern lights in February.
