Located in the North Atlantic Ocean, Iceland is a small Nordic Island that has become a hugely popular tourist destination over the last few years.
Known for the aurora borealis (or Northern Lights), this is one of the main tourist attractions in the wintertime. While your Four Friends traveled to Iceland in Winter, we did not get to see this natural wonder. We recommend that you spend at least 7 days on the island between October and March to increase your chances of seeing the lights.
There are so many other amazing things to see and do in Iceland. Here are our tips.
