  • High Season in Iceland is in the middle of summer. During the summer is the 24-hour daylight. Starting in late May and lasting until July, the midnight sun brightens up the night sky in Iceland creating a marvellous night sky painted in sapphire, orange and pink eternal sunsets. During the summertime, you can see the sun go down and then back up again in a matter of minutes. Unfortunately, you will not be able to see the Northern Lights. This is the most expensive season.
  • Middle Season in Iceland is the time in between the high and low seasons and is the best time to go to Iceland for weather, cost, lack of tourists, the colour palette of the landscape, you will be able to see the Northern Lights and have enough daylight to travel around the country.
