Winter adventure on 4×4 Sprinter

4×4 Sprinter full of snow at Fosshotel Myvatn. 26.02.2020

Our 4×4 Sprinter is back and cleaned from a real winter adventure to North Iceland. Eleven guests from Switzerland joined the annually repeated Wintermärchen tour (translated winter fairy tale tour). As there was hardly any snow in Switzerland during this winter everybody was very happy to find white landscapes from the first to the last day. Somewhen the guests got a feeling how  Icelandic weather can be when heavy winds are blowing the snow around and results in very poor visibility. Due to more snowfalls we had to change the routing little bit but the major program could be fulfilled. On some parts we were really happy to be on 4×4 Sprinters and not to get stuck anywhere.

The second last night even the Northern Lights showed up and were caught on photos – the real title of this German guided tour is Wintermärchen unter Nordlichtern, is organized by Best of Iceland and will likely be repeated in March 2021. Of course this tour can always be done as a private tour as well. Just send a request to Here are some more winter impressions of this tour:
