More Info

Sitting in the very north of the North Atlantic Ocean, Iceland is a truly unique place on Earth. Warm water from the Gulf of Mexico and volcanic activity beneath the island’s surface make it much warmer than it otherwise would be and opens up the possibility for simply amazing summertime hiking.

Aside from the aforementioned hiking hotspots, Vatnajökull National Park in the east of the country is another excellent place to head. Covered in an 8.1000 square-kilometer glacier, hiking across it offers plenty of chances to see the stunning surroundings. These high plateaus, volcanoes and mountains also make for excellent hiking destinations.

While not done as often, hiking in the spring and autumn is the best time of year to the wondrous northern lights. This is most often done on the Sólheimajökull glacier in November and March, when the chances of seeing the lights are the highest.




Good to Know


What’s the weather like?

During the summer months, average daily temperatures range from 10 ºC to 20 ºC. The summer months are also the driest time of year. However, the weather is quite volatile on the island and storms can sweep across the landscape without warning.

How do I get there:

Any trip to Iceland will begin with a flight into either Keflavík International Airport (KEF) or Reykjavik Airport (RKV). From here, it is easy enough to rent a car, take public transport or catch a domestic flight to your final destination.
