Winters are not as cold in Iceland as people may think. The average low is approximately -2 degrees Celsius (28.4 Fahrenheit), whereas the average high is about 3 degrees Celsius (37.4 Fahrenheit). You’ll find the indoors to be quite toasty and warm though, as Iceland runs on inexpensive geothermal energy.

Will I see the Northern Lights during my photo tour in Iceland?
If the weather is clear and aurora activity is forecast, then the Northern Lights (or Aurora Borealis) can be seen in Iceland from late August until the beginning of April. Generally, you will have the chance to see them during our winter photo tours. Though we do our best to monitor the aurora activity and weather conditions, we cannot guarantee that you will see them during your visit to Iceland.
