The 13 Yule lads welcome guests to join them for a bit of festive fun at Hallarflöt in Dimmuborgir, north Iceland, daily between 1 pm and 3 pm until 31 December.

Dimmuborgir is located by the scenic Lake Mývatn, an area surrounded by rugged lava rocks, dotted with countless caves, and magnificent views. During winter, the area is transformed into a magnificent wonderland when thick snow blankets the ground. A perfect spot to visit if you are in a festive mood.

Admission fee is 1000 ISK for guests 18 years and older.
