Sure, in the winter, Iceland has some snow and ice but in the summer time the climate warms and the sky gets bright. In fact, as we approach the summer solstice (June 21st) the sun shines all day long. This means long days, never-ending sunsets and plenty of time to see the sights and enjoy nature. So what can you do in the midnight sun?
* Try a round of midnight golf.
* Relax in a hot spring and then watch the sunset and sunrise within a few minutes from Europe’s largest glacier.
* Coastal Bike Tour 7pm-2am
* Golden Circle Tour 7pm-2am
* Whale watching
* Horseback Riding
* On the warmest days you can even sunbathe!
The possibilities are endless. However, we recommend heading to the north of Iceland near the Arctic Circle, where the days are even longer:
The Midnight Sun and North Iceland package starting from $1,945* pp/dbl includes round trip airfare, four nights hotel, domestic flights, and a visit to the spectacular Lake Myvatn area in the north of Iceland. You will also have plenty of time to enjoy the midnight sun.
All of this is less than 5 hours from the east coast. We look forward to welcoming you during this special time of year.
