TRAVELLING TO ICELAND IN MARCH
March is a fantastic month to visit Iceland and 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 March. Not everything is quiet, though — the city centre of Reykjavik stays as lively as ever with an abundance of cafes, bars, restaurants, museums, shops, galleries and thermal swimming pools.
Even with the winter weather in March, 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 March. 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 March.
