Peak ( Jun - Aug )

What better time to go to Iceland than when the streets of Reykjavik never sleep and the entire country is rejoicing in 24/7 sunlight? Expect swathes of tourists, some in large tour coaches, but Iceland is big enough to take it all. Book in advance though; its geographic location, almost equidistant from Europe and North America, has made it a hot tourist destination.

Shoulder ( May , Sep )

On the cusps of winter, these 2 months will see a tapering off of tourists. The visiting conditions are still optimal for travellers who do not mind a little rain and snow in the interests of lesser crowds and attractive prices on hotels and excursions.

Low ( Oct - Apr )

This is when the country is slowly plunging into, or slowly climbing out off, an extended nightfall that lasts 7 months. However, the temperatures are still comfortable, with a min/max of -10 C and 5 C (not that much different from peak summer temperatures). Certain areas may become snowed in and impassable, although winter activities like skiing and snowshoeing come alive. And the piece de resistance, which you will never see in summer, the magnificent Northern Lights light up the sky most nights.
