THINGS TO DO IN ICELAND IN DECEMBER
As one of the more popular spots in Iceland, Gullfoss Waterfall is definitely a place to visit in the winter. Located in the canyon of Hvítá river in the southwest of Iceland, Gullfoss is best experienced in the winter months when the waterfall partially freezes over and visitors are treated to a vast landscape of white snow.

NEW YEAR’S EVE IN REYKJAVIK
On New Year’s Eve the bars and nightclubs in Reykjavik come alive and celebrate the biggest night of the year. Locals tend to gather together for dinner before heading out into town to party which offers tourists plenty of opportunity to get stuck in and experience the Icelandic nightlife. Unlike in other countries, the bars and nightclubs tend to open after 12 am to allow the bartenders to spend the New Year with their family. Therefore, most venues open at 1am so make sure you get there on time to secure your entry.
