Spring in Iceland is a short but sweet season and showcases all the best Iceland offers.
You may hear a lot about winter in Iceland and a ton about traveling during the summer, but there isn’t much information about visiting in the spring, and we want to change that.
The weather is better, prices are still more affordable, and the snow is melting, so you will see Iceland’s true splendor emerge from behind the cloak of winter!
Iceland in the Summer
The temperature in Iceland during the summer is pleasant.
Most Icelanders think it is warm since they are used to cold winters.
Official summer months in Iceland are June, July, and August; however, even during the summer months, the average temperature in Iceland is only 10°C (50 Fahrenheit), and the absolute warmest it gets is 20°C (68 F).
Summer is the “high season” in Iceland and the most popular travel season, with more cars on the road, more hikers, and higher prices.
Iceland in the Fall
Colored landscapes, cooler temperatures, lower prices, vibrant fall foliage, and the Northern Lights are the main highlights of the fall.
Fall is a less busy season there when the rush of the summer is over, and the winter festivities are yet to set in.
For travelers, it means that you can enjoy the best of both seasons without having to pay extra high prices for travel services.
Iceland in the Winter
When you think of Iceland in winter, you usually think of the icy cold weather and Northern Lights.
However, it is not a very cold country as the Gulf Stream warms it, resulting in a rather temperate climate even in winter.
Even though Iceland is the country of ice, it isn’t as cold as you would expect.
Winter season is from September and until April.
You can usually expect snowstorms and a lot of ice from November to February.
The driving conditions are challenging, and driving in the countryside should only be attempted by those who are used to severe and icy conditions.
However, here in winter it can be very safe with local drivers and exiting because of the fantastic winter landscapes.
Winter in Iceland offers plenty of exciting activities besides sightseeing and the Northern Lights:
visits to ice caves
