Iceland is perhaps my favorite spot on earth, especially during the winter, and especially at New Years. Our January 2012 trip was positively magical, and one of our favorite experiences was a sunrise (noon!) sled ride on a farm in Holmasel—about a two hour drive from Reykjavik. We arranged our tour with Dogsledding Iceland. When we arrived in Holmasel, the five of us (including our friends’ adorable 10 month old) suited up in our snow clothes and headed out with the pups! The adorable dogs were such a joy, and seeing the sunrise in the middle of a massive field of snow at one of the most northern spots in the world was something we will never forget. Iceland is a fabulous country, full of amazing people—a must-visit!
