Let us give you the A-Z insider guides before you make a travel tour to Iceland.

When is the best time to come?

If you think you can find only ice and coldness in the country, then you have to follow the post to have a better insight into the 4-season beauty there, which catches great attention of so many locals and foreigners. Warm spring, cool summer, romantic fall and impressive winter will definitely blow your mind away.

Spring

Spring in Iceland often starts from April to June when the day time is longer than the night one, which gives visitors many chances to explore every corner in Iceland with cheap prices. However, you are highly recommended to book tickets in advance as during that time the flight schedule is quite limited.

Summer

This is the high season in Iceland, starting from June to August. At the time, you can enjoy the cool atmosphere rather than the hot heat like in other countries. But if you are looking for a peaceful place to escape the busy and modern life, summer is not suitable.

Autumn

When it comes to autumn, the weather is more likely to be colder and thus you can find a lot of promotion programs for tourists. One of the most interesting attractions you can’t miss is the Northern Light Phenomenon.

Winter

What to eat?

The impressive cuisine in Iceland has a long history. The main ingredients that Icelanders usually cook are lamb, fish and milk.

Þorramatur is well-known as the national dish of the beautiful country which is served in January and February. Likewise, there’s things like Hákarl, graflax, hangikjöt, slátur, skyr, etc. that won’t make you disappointed.

Imposing Gullfoss waterfall in winter

The beautiful country of Iceland is home to more than 10,000 waterfalls, but Gullfoss is widely known as the most beautiful the world over. This tourist destination is located on Haviban river which originated from Langiokull.

The waterfall looks gorgeous all year round, so you can visit the site whenever you want. However, winter is highly recommended due to the fact that Gulfoss is iced when winter comes, from which you can see with your own eyes the 2-floor-iced cascade and take home the most amazing photos ever.

Let’s come to Iceland to admire yourself the stunning and excellent beauty of nature there. Hope it would be a perfect trip with lots of fun and interesting experiences.
