Winter Heats Up In Iceland!
Despite what its chilly-sounding name might suggest, Iceland does not freeze to a halt in winter. Average January temperatures in many parts of Iceland are actually higher than those in New York and, in a sense, much of Iceland's cultural life bursts into bloom from autumn to spring, before the long bright nights and the main travel season begin.
Outdoor life goes on as usual in Iceland throughout winter, with horseback riding and sightseeing all year round. And for thrills such as snowmobiling, you don't even need to go up on a glacier in winter because rental and tour operators will find you plenty of places to zoom around at liberty. Some sports even take on an added flair in winter - like swimming in a geothermally-heated outdoor pool, in a blizzard!
For winter incentive tours, Iceland is a particular favorite because of its action - both in nature and in town.
On the cultural front you'll have the choice of symphony orchestra, opera, theaters (there's no language barrier for the frequent musicals), and a rich variety of other musical events. Alongside home artists, growing numbers of celebrated international performers from all fields are eager to include "cool but hot" Iceland in their tour programs these days. And for a little daytime cultural input, a fine national and international mix is also found at the many visual art museums and galleries.
