When to Visit

Choosing when to visit Iceland often hinges on what you want to see. For many, the dance of the Northern Lights, best seen between September and April, is the main draw. However, be prepared for potentially harsh winter conditions and shorter daylight hours during these months.

For warmer weather, extended daylight hours, and the blooming of Iceland's unique flora, consider visiting between June and August. This period, featuring the mesmerising Midnight Sun phenomenon, offers optimal conditions for hiking and sightseeing, particularly around the Golden Circle and the South Coast. Remember, this is peak tourist season so be prepared for larger crowds and slightly higher prices.
