Reykjavik is a year-round destination, despite its northerly location. Enjoy 24-hour sunshine in June or go whale watching from May to September. Climb to the top of the stunning Hallgrímskirkja church for fabulous views or catch the Sonar Iceland music festival. As the days grow shorter in the Icelandic capital, you might visit world-class galleries and museums or dine in fine restaurants. Be sure to add outings to famous glaciers and geysers. If you're lucky you may even see the spectacular Northern Lights.
It's well worth reserving your Reykjavik flight and hotel at the same time. You won't have to juggle your departure dates to fit hotel availability and you'll save, too. Not only are Reykjavik travel deals faster to book and more convenient, they allow you to benefit from the most tempting rates, whatever the season.
May to September is summer in Iceland and May is the most popular month. Although the Icelandic weather is always unpredictable, you can expect long days and average temperatures of around 50 to 57°F. However, it would be wrong to think of the city as purely a summer destination. From November to February, ice bars, cross-country skiing, and magical glaciers and geysers make the city just as appealing and you can take advantage of some of the year's best Reykjavik travel deals.
