A winter road trip through Iceland is a special way to spend Christmas. We purchased a map of the south and west coasts, rented a four wheel drive and away we went on our winter road trip through Iceland. Admittedly we were cautious about battling extreme weather conditions as well as maximising the four hours of sunlight each day. But the beauty of Iceland is breathtaking. From its mountainous terrain and peaks covered in fluffy white snow, to its violent waterfalls and boiling geysers. Iceland is horrendously expensive but it is a once in a lifetime adventure and winter proved to be an especially magical time to visit.
