Who‘s afraid of the dark?

As a contrast to the nightless nights of midsummer, the midwinter in Iceland sees only a few hours of sunlight. For example, on the longest day around Christmas time there is only 5 hours of light, sunrise being at around 11 am and sunset around 3 pm.

After new year‘s the days get longer by even 10 minutes a day, but the astronomical winter lasts until the end of March.

So what should you enjoy in Iceland during the winter months? Here is some local advice from Icelandair Hotels staff:

-          Go out as much and as often as you can when it‘s light outside. Make the most of the light time so you‘ll see the sun still exists!

-          Sleep longer whenever possible. If you feel sleepy, it‘s because you need more of it. Trust your body, it knows.

-          It isn‘t as bad as people think.

-          Smile through it. Positivity takes you a long way, and it catches!

-          The darkness makes you appreciate the summer more.

 

And of course there are many activities you can enjoy during winter. So go out and enjoy the dark and the wild!

Northern lights

The winter months are the only time to be able to see the famous Northern Lights! Also known as Aurora Borealis, these "light streaks" in the skies are caused by the interaction of particles from the sun with the upper atmosphere near the North Pole. Northern Lights in Iceland are visible during the winter months, from September to April.
