Compare cheap flights to Iceland
Iceland is located in the north of the Atlantic Ocean, between North America and Europe. Ten percent of this mountainous Nordic European country is covered with glaciers. It is a place where the midnight sun and the cold winter breeze co-exist. The country offers scenic views of nature right at the heart of a highly urbanized community. Summer is the ideal travel season for tourists because of the magnificent midnight sun that must never be missed when visiting Iceland.
It is surprising that Iceland has a mild climate because of the Atlantic Gulf Stream’s warming effect. Iceland’s winter is comparable to New England’s, but the winds can be bad. Do not be surprised if you get rained on and then get sunburned in one day. It is the effect of the weather that rapidly changes. Temperature during summer is usually around 25 °C. While summer is the best time to go, you can also visit Iceland in late winter to enjoy the snow-covered landscapes.
Go Beyond the City
The best sights in Iceland are seen outside the capital like big volcanoes and beautiful glaciers. One option is to rent a vehicle because these awesome sights do not require entrance fees. Make sure to visit exciting places like Pingvellir National Park, Blue Lagoon, Gullfoss, Geysir and more.
