Iceland is a magical place. It’s the land of sheep, northern lights, volcanoes with unpronounceable names (try saying “Eyjafjallajökull”), rugged landscapes, waterfalls, mountains, and natural hot springs. Its stunning, scenic landscape feels out of this world.

Iceland quickly became one of my favorite countries after my first visit. It’s such a beautiful island filled with warm, welcoming people and sweeping vistas you won’t find anywhere else in the world. I have relished every subsequent visit to the country.

However, Iceland is expensive.

Traveling here on a budget is difficult as Iceland is definitely not a cheap country (and the growing influx of tourists is only increasing prices further).

Fortunately, it is possible to see a lot without going broke if you plan ahead. You won’t be living large if you’re here to backpack, but Iceland is worth the expense.

This travel guide to Iceland can help you plan your trip and see the sights without breaking the bank!

Before I finally resolved to visit more cold spots this winter, after fully experiencing my first winter of life (in my 30s, I know. I’m late), I came to realize that it’s actually one of my favorite seasons.

There are so many things that you can only do when it’s really, truly cold outside, and Finnish Lapland is the perfect place to do them all. From playing in the snow to all of the adrenaline activities and cool things you can do either solo or with friends, I was really impressed by the offerings there and found myself fantasizing about renting a little cottage there next winter, just so that I could ski on those uncrowded slopes and stare up at the sky hoping for the aurora borealis.

Here are 13 things I tried and that I have a feeling you’ll love too when you visit Lapland:

If you’ve always dreamed of seeing the Northern Lights, or have seen them already and know how incredible they are, you’ll know it’s a beautiful phenomenon that gets addictive. The more you have seen them, the more you want to again!

Churchill, Manitoba was listed as one of Canada's "50 Places of a Lifetime" by National Geographic. This tiny town with a population of just about a thousand boasts 300 nights per year with the potential to see the northern lights!

Watch the vlog to see how you can plan a northern lights trip to Churchill on a budget, as well as other things to do while you are there, including dog sledding and snowmobiling.
