Iceweasel 37.0 is available in experimental:

  Installed: 37.0-1
  Candidate: 37.0-1
  Version table:
 *** 37.0-1 0
        100 http://ftp.de.debian.org/debian/ experimental/main amd64 Packages
        100 /var/lib/dpkg/status
     31.6.0esr-1 0
        990 http://ftp.de.debian.org/debian/ unstable/main amd64 Packages

Just run:
apt-get install -t experimental iceweasel

You need at least
deb http://$YOUR_MIRROR/debian/ experimental main
in sources.list to get it.

 The path to source is always uphill!
