What To Do in Iceland in March

In March the weather is (hopefully) getting a little better and you will enjoy more daylight than in the previous months. Also, the lighting for photography is spectacular in Iceland in March. Here are some ideas for what to do in Iceland in march.


This time of year is still good for a chance to go northern light hunting. We recommend trips outside of Reykjavik to explore the surrounding, the Snæfellsnes Peninsular, Thingvellir National Park, and the Southern Coast. Be prepared for any weather this (weather changes fast in Iceland!) but if you are up for embracing some occational snow, wind and clouds you have a great adventure ahead of you. March is also the last month of the winter season where it is save to enter natural ice-caves in some of Iceland's magnificent glaciers.
