Troll Peninsula, Iceland
When to go
From November to April, the peninsula’s temperature hovers around freezing (or drops just below); July and August highs reach the low teens. For peak skiing conditions, visit in April and May. It’s possible to spot whales off the coast from early April to late November, and your best chances for catching the Northern Lights are between November and March (avoid the time around the full moon).
