The Best Time to Visit Iceland

The most frequently asked question is about the best time to visit Iceland. It is also the hardest question to answer.

Iceland is a unique destination that offers great travel experience all-year-round. No matter when you travel Iceland will not disappoint you.

Summer, of course, is the most popular season because of the warm weather, extended daylight, arts and cultural festivals, green scenery and open highland roads paving access to less explored and somewhat virgin parts of Iceland. The downsides are crowds of tourists, higher rates and difficulties finding accommodations in certain areas. Summers are short in Iceland and mid-August starts feeling like early fall. Back roads are closed from mid-October to mid-May. The prices are lower and most places are not so crowded. This is a great time to enjoy fall colors. Since Iceland has very few trees, the color changes are mostly in the grass, mosses and low shrubs. For the best fall foliage visit National parks. Bring warm clothes and be prepared for possible cold weather though you might get lucky and experience summer temperatures for a short time.
