Winter in the Vatnajokull Region is a magical time when the Northern lights roam the skies above Vatnajokull and glaciers change to a clear deep blue color. There is rich wildlife with herds of wild reindeer gathering in valleys and playful seals swim in Jokulsarlon glacier lagoon. And then there is the irresistible local food, made in the region and sold at it´s restaurants and local food store.
You can find diverse activities and accommodation all year round in the Vatnajokull Region. The area is accessible all year due to it being one of the least snowy areas of Iceland. The Vatnajokull Region is only one hour plane ride from the capital Reykjavík or just a morning's amazing scenic drive through the South of Iceland.
