Tips for Visiting Iceland

Avoid July and August

There is no “bad” time to visit Iceland. Whale watching takes center stage from May through August, fewer tourists make visits to the hot springs more enjoyable in September and early October, and short days in December increase the likelihood of seeing the northern lights. Just be sure to pack appropriately for those long nights waiting for the sky to light up!


Things to do

There’s no other way to describe it– Iceland is a country full of natural wonders. Take a soak in Mother Nature’s hot tub at the Blue Lagoon, chase waterfalls, climb glaciers, and scan the horizon for the Northern Lights. Oh, and did I mention the food? Cozy up with rock crab soup, delight your taste buds with rye bread ice cream, and try the famous Reykjavik hot dog (yes, seriously)!
