In February Iceland’s Lake Myvatn has everything to offer to those who dream of a relaxing and enchanting stay. The sun is already on its way back, the cold is dry and invigorating, the scenery beautiful. Your days will include walks of three to four hours on snowshoes followed by a natural warm bath of about 40 degrees, some of which are located in cavities in the rock, and after a superb meal you have the chance to experience the magical natural phenomenon – the aurora borealis or Northern Lights. You will actually hear them because in addition to their beautiful colours they sing.
