The Best Time to Visit Iceland

The Best Time to Visit Iceland

If you follow any avid travelers on Instagram, chances are that you have seen a LOT of photos of Iceland. A Nordic island nation, Iceland is defined by dramatic landscapes, black beaches, active volcanos, boiling geysers, and crystal blue hot springs, all of which make this country a true paradise for photographers and adventurers, alike. (Oh, and did I mention the amazing flight deals?!) So the only question you really need to ask yourself is, “When do I go?!?”

Iceland in August | Northern Lights, Midnight Sun, & Things to Do

Visiting Iceland in August  offers incredible wildlife-viewing opportunities (the Puffins migration & whale watching are at their peak), a myriad of festivals & cultural events, and absolutely beautiful weather. August marks the end of the summer, and therefore is one of the most temperate months to travel to Iceland with pleasant temperatures, little rainfall, and opportunities to experience both the Midnight Sun and the Northern Lights.
