There are two main seasons for visiting Iceland: summer and winter. Each time of year offers a different kind of experience.

The most popular summer months to visit Iceland are June to August, when the weather is at its warmest and the days are longer. Visit at this time of year and you could see the marvelous midnight sun, lush moss-lined valleys, and pretty flower-filled meadows.

Winter in Iceland runs from October to March. Around this time, you can seek out the Northern Lights, spot snow-dusted mountaintops, and gaze at blue-white glaciers.

You can also have a fantastic experience in Iceland during the spring and autumn shoulder seasons. These are both quieter times of year, when Iceland’s major attractions are all still easily accessible.

The thing about Iceland is that it’s great for both short and long trips. On a 4-day tour, you could explore Reykjavík, the Golden Circle, and waterfalls on the south coast.

Spend 5 days to a week in Iceland and you can pack a lot more in. For instance, go further afield to West Iceland and the Snæfellsnes peninsula. You could even circle the entire Ring Road in a week.

With a longer stay of 10 days to 2 weeks, you can get to know each region more intimately and travel at a slower pace. In summer, it’s also possible to access further-flung parts of the country like the Westfjords and the central highlands.

There’s so much to see in Iceland that it can be tricky to know where to start.

A classic is to follow the Golden Circle route, which includes the historic Þingvellir National Park, active Strokkur geyser, and breathtaking Gullfoss waterfall.

From there, you can easily venture south along the coast, hitting sights like Reynisfjara black sand beach, Jökulsárlón glacier lagoon, and Breiðamerkursandur (Diamond Beach).

Another popular region is the Snæfellsnes peninsula. Here you’ll find iconic landmarks, such as Kirkjufell mountain (as featured in Game of Thrones) and rock arch at Arnarstapi. The peninsula is also home to its very own glacier, Snæfellsjökull.

If you feel like heading off the beaten track, you could visit the remote Westfjords or the lesser-explored regions of North Iceland and East Iceland.

The Land of Fire and Ice is brimming with opportunities to do things you might never be able to do elsewhere. Visit Iceland and you could:

  • Snorkel between continents at Silfra gorge
  • Ride an Icelandic horse along a black sand beach
  • Go underground and explore a lava cave
  • Snowmobile across a pristine glacier
  • Look around a crystal-blue ice cave
  • Unwind in the Blue Lagoon or Sky Lagoon
  • Chase the Aurora Borealis under the winter sky
  • Jet around a glacier lagoon in an amphibious vehicle

It’s normally a good idea to hold off on booking flights until you’ve secured your trip package. That said, you might have already locked in a last-minute deal on flights.

All of our packages, except guided group trips, have flexible departure dates. This means that if you’ve already booked your flights, you should be able to find a package that works with your dates.

Check the specific package page for detailed info on dates, as last-minute packages tend to have limited availability.
