What is the best time to visit Hella?

The peak tourist season in Iceland is from June to August when the weather is milder, and there are long daylight hours, which makes it perfect for exploring the outdoors. However, this is also the busiest and most expensive time to visit, and accommodation can be hard to find.
If you're looking for a quieter and more affordable time to visit, consider traveling during the shoulder seasons of May or September. During these months, the weather is still pleasant, and there are fewer tourists around.
Winter, from November to March, can be a beautiful time to visit Hella, especially if you're interested in seeing the northern lights. However, the weather can be unpredictable, and some roads may be closed due to snow and ice, so it's important to be prepared and check conditions before traveling.
