We named Iceland the best destination to visit in 2018, so if you haven't made it there yet, now is your chance. You'll only have about four hours of daylight during the month of December, but you just might catch a glimpse of the breathtaking northern lights.

Plus, Icelanders love Christmas. Instead of just one Santa Claus, they celebrate with 13 Yule Lads, figures from Icelandic folklore that are found in windows all over the city during the holiday.

True Christmas fans won't want to miss the Christmas Village in Hafnarfjordur, the Christmas market in Ingolfstorg Square, and the Christmas exhibit at the Reykjavik City Museum.
