Iceland is not only closer than you think, but far different than you ever imagined. Where else can you witness such marvels of Mother Nature as a tremendous icecap and several glaciers, spouting geysers and steaming solfataras, volcanoes (hopefully dormant), raging rivers and magnificent waterfalls, a multitude of birds, cavorting whales just offshore and many other surprises. Summers are surprisingly warm and winters not as cold as you might expect. Regardless of when you visit, be assured that the warmth shown by Icelanders, their desire to share their culture and the efforts made to make your stay as pleasant as possible will, like the spectacular landscape, never be forgotten. – Visit Iceland – Your official travel guide to Iceland.

AUTUMN: Cultural activities move into full swing as nature cools its pace. Enjoy freedom outdoors in a riot of colours.

 

WINTER: Endless celebrations and fireworks. Nature sinks into its charmed slumber, weird contrasts are captured in suspended animation. Eat, drink and be merry under the shimmering green Northern Lights!

 

SPRING: Daylight spreads and stretches out, the land and the people slip free from winter’s chilly grasp. Groups can arrange to greet the spring with a glacier feast.
