Who doesn’t cherish their holidays? Whether visiting family and friends, or simply getting away to a favorite spot. But if you fancy somewhere unique this winter with a super-cool wow-factor, why not try to enjoy winter in Iceland.

Iceland in winter

Tourism to Iceland has steadily grown and it’s easy to understand why. It boasts a unique blend of volcanoes, vast icecaps, lava and glacier caves, crashing waterfalls and majestic fjords, whale watching and spectacular views of the magical Aurora Borealis. Not to mention stylish hotels, hot-springs and fabulously fresh seafood.

And it’s not as cold as you might think – even in December – the average temperatures in Reykjavik range from 4°C to -2°C. Iceland is an uncrowded destination, providing something for all ages, from adventure activities to breathtaking scenery and the unique light that only the Arctic offers. Whatever you opt for, be a savvy traveler and research the right trip to suit you.

Whether you prefer to travel under your own steam or on a package, chances are, you’ll be paying something upfront, which means more at stake if things go wrong. It may be tempting to think “it won’t happen to me” – especially when booking a holiday, but things do go wrong. Last year UK Insurance Companies paid out over £365,000,000 to cover costs of medical treatment abroad, cancelled trips, and other travel troubles to individuals, couples and families who had a problem whilst abroad. That’s £1,000,000 each day of the year! So if you are spending hundreds, or more likely thousands on your next break, do yourself a favour and don’t skimp on getting a decent travel insurance policy to protect you.
