It's time for an adventure
The best time to experience Iceland is all year-round.
Iceland is a country of extreme contrasts where long summer days with 24-hours of sunlight are offset by short winter days. You might want to visit during fall or winter and see the Northern lights with your own eyes. Or soak in one of the countless geothermal pools around the country - any given time of the year.
The Northern lights
The Aurora Borealis takes its name from the roman goddess of dawn, aurora, and the Greek name for the north wind, boreas. From September to April, Iceland is a hotspot for this magnificent lightshow
Icelanders love soaking in hot water and for the past years developers across the country have been stepping up the variety of leisure baths with swim-up bars and stunning views.
The Diamond Circle
The Diamond Circle includes the picturesque Goðafoss, the unearthly landscapes of Lake Mývatn, the uncontrollable white energy of Dettifoss, the wonder of Ásbyrgi canyon and Húsavík the buzzing whale watching capital of Iceland.
Soaking in a natural lagoon after a hike, long or short, is perhaps the ultimate Icelandic experience. Here are seven of Iceland‘s natural baths where hot springs mix with groundwater somewhere in the middle of … a great trip.
During the summer months, in particular, the shores become a veritable feeding ground for multiple species of large marine mammals, giving visitors a chance to observe these magnificent creatures in their natural habitat.
