⏱️ When to visit

That depends on what you want to do and see during your trip. Many people choose summer to visit Iceland, mainly because the weather is more mild and thus easier to get around. You’ll also get to enjoy the midnight sun experiencing up to 20 hrs of daylight. However, if you’re dying to see the Northern Lights and you don’t mind the cold, winter would be your best bet. Spring and autumn are typically less busy than summer season, but the weather can be unpredictable during that time of year. No matter what season you choose to visit, there will be a treasure trove of outdoor adventures for you to experience.

Culture

This small but mighty country has an incredibly rich cultural heartbeat. Street art decorates the city, the music scene is pulsing (Icelandic rap is amazing...no joke), plus there's the whole vikings thing. So switch up the nature with something from this list.
