When to Visit Iceland

There are reasons to visit Iceland in every season, with attractions like the waterfalls and hot springs enjoyed year-round. Winter is surprisingly mild with temperatures hovering right around freezing, ideal for catching the northern lights and taking ice cave tours. In the spring lupines are blooming, lambs frolic, and the summer crowds have yet to arrive. Summer is the high season with endless hours of daylight and the most activities available, but you’ll need to book well in advance and plan to pay higher prices. Visitor numbers start to fall along with the temperatures in autumn – by late September the aurora might make an appearance.
