Summer travel in Iceland

Iceland is a country of beautiful extremes, and the summer is no exception. Although temperatures remain mild rather than hot, the all-night sun casts a bewitching glow over the mossy landscapes and rugged coastlines, and wildlife fills the green lowlands. Stunning locations which are inaccessible during winter become exciting destinations to visit as part of our all-accommodating summer packages.

There is a unique quality to the summer sunlight which has earned Iceland its reputation as a photographer’s dream. With the ‘golden hour’ extending over several hours and sunsets which can stretch on through the evening, it’s important sometimes to remember to put down your camera, take a breath, and simply enjoy the fantastic scenery and natural wonders around you.

Although your tour is in the middle of summer, you can still experience Iceland’s icy wonders by going on a glacial hike or taking a snowmobile ride across the ice caps. If you are not feeling quite so adventurous, many packages are more conducive to comfortable sightseeing with guided tours and drivers who make sure that you’re never far from a warm and relaxing environment. Whatever your preference, there will be a summer package suitable for you.

Bear in mind that Iceland is not the limit. We also offer packages that include visits to our neighbour Greenland for an authentic summertime Arctic experience. Both Iceland and Greenland are home to a fantastic wealth of wildlife. Notably, the summer months herald the arrival of puffins, flocking to Icelandic shores to nest alongside gannets, guillemots and an abundance of arctic terns.

Although our winter is dark and icy, when summer comes to Iceland, it is something to behold. You can genuinely feel the warmth of the midnight sun in the plants, animals and the attitude of the people. Come feel summer inside and out and book a summer package today.

Frequently asked questions

How is pick-up from the airport arranged for my summer tour in Iceland?

You will be provided with an open Flybus ticket which gives you admission to a bus that transfers you to Reykjavik from Keflavik Airport and back. This should quickly get you into the city to start your summer tour in Iceland.

Should my accommodation be in Keflavik, could I be dropped off or picked up from there?

We only offer direct Keflavik International Airport transfers to and from Reykjavik accommodations. You would, therefore, do well to book accommodation in Keflavik that offers an airport shuttle since you will be dropped off and picked up from there. Another option would be to make use of a taxi transfer, which is not included in any of these packages.

Can I get picked up at my apartment, my Airbnb lodging or at a private residence for my summer tour in Iceland?

No, but you can choose from a list of designated pickup locations, such as the nearest hotel, during the booking process of your summer tour in Iceland. Be sure to contact your travel agent if there is any confusion.

Yes, rescheduling visits to the Blue Lagoon is almost always possible. Just contact your travel agent so that all the necessary arrangements can be made.
