Iceland has long been a popular winter destination for keen travellers, and this is not without reason. This little island transforms when blanketed in frost and snow, creating a fantastical white wonderland that will surely entice both enthusiastic photographers and nature lovers alike.
Although Reykjavík has been snowless for most of December, the same cannot be said for Iceland’s countryside. The northern town of Akureyri, for instance, has experienced the highest snowfall on record since the 1960s.
Fear not, for those unable to visit Iceland this season can get a glimpse of this country’s beautiful nature—all of it cloaked in its wintery costume of ice and snow—through this selection of photographs our friends in the countryside have sent us. Check out the gallery below.
