Top 10 Pictures for January - Theme: Winter has arrived

Written by Cat Gundry-Beck - 30 Jan 2019 5 minute read -

 

January has been a beautiful month in Iceland: after a December so warm it broke records, we welcomed the January snow with squeals of excitement and joy. A white blanket covered the city of Reykjavík, the air became crisp and fresh, but best of all we got to see all of our favourite sites out in nature with a new, white colour palette.


 


 The light at the Glacier Lagoon is soft and beautiful this time of year

 

 
Iceland has a lot of black sand beaches, so it’s rare to find a white sand beach like this one!

 Be careful when walking under the icicles on the buildings in Reykjavík!

 


 If you come on our Glacier Lagoon tour in January, it’s dark when we get to Seljalandsfoss waterfall, but don’t worry - it looks stunning all lit up at night!

 


Do you think this hat suits our guide Matt?

 


The horses in Iceland are built to withstand the cold Icelandic winter, they quite enjoy being out in the snow!

 


This photo was taken at our rest stop in Hvolsvöllur, even the gas station areas in Iceland are photogenic!

What is Christmas like in Iceland?

The idea of a singular Santa Claus has brushed aside in favour of thirteen “Yule Lads” who deliver various kinds of mischief (and sometimes gifts if you leave a shoe out for them). These Yule Lads come down from the mountains where they reside with their troll parents Grýla and Leppalúði and the Christmas cat.
