  • New Year under Northern Lights


    Winter, feasts and Icelandic way of life on the country side. Who does not want to experience Iceland in the wintertime? Northern lights, sometimes blizzards, short days but long dawns… How do Icelanders celebrate New Year? What are fairy fires? We try to get some insight in the cultural life, celebrate New Year with our hosts and gather new energy for the year to come.
