Do you prefer winter or summer in Iceland?



The best tourist season in Iceland is summer (June to August), as the weather is mild, the sunshine is long, and the scenery is beautiful, making it suitable for outdoor activities and viewing the northern lights. However, winter (October April) is also the best season to watch the northern lights.

1. Transportation

The main modes of transportation in Iceland are car rentals and buses. Renting a car can make exploring Iceland more convenient, but it requires a driver’s license and some driving experience. Buses can help you reach your main tourist destination, but the schedule is relatively limited.

2. Food

Iceland’s food is mainly seafood and meat, such as salmon, cod, venison, lamb, etc. There are also some local specialties, such as whale meat, cod liver, abalone, etc. In addition, there are many coffee shops and bars in Iceland that serve local beer and coffee.

3. Tourist attractions

Iceland has many famous tourist attractions, such as glacial lakes, hot springs, waterfalls, volcanoes, and glaciers. Some of the most famous attractions include: Golden Waterfall, the southern coast of Iceland, the Viking History Museum, Blue Lake Hot Springs, Yelysavik and Krat Volcano.

4 Northern Lights

If you want to watch the Northern Lights, it’s best to go to Iceland in winter. The best viewing time is in the evening and early morning, but it is important to pay attention to the clarity of the weather and sky. If you haven’t rented a car, you can join the local Northern Lights viewing group.

5. Expenses

Iceland is a relatively expensive country, especially in terms of food and accommodation. However, you can save costs by booking travel packages or staying at affordable accommodations such as youth hostels.

I hope these strategies can help you plan a pleasant trip to Iceland.
