More Information

Iceland is a country of sharp contrasts. A place where fire and ice co-exist. Where dark winters are offset by the summer’s midnight sun. A country where insular existence has spurred a rich and vibrant culture.

From a geological standpoint, Iceland is a very young country, still in the midst of its own creation. Shaped by the forces of nature, the, barren landscapes demonstrate the creativity powers of the four basic elements, earth, air, fire, and water in a dramatic way. Active volcanoes, bright green valleys, glacier-cut fjords, black sand beaches, and roaring rivers are the most distinctive features of the Icelandic landscape.

Iceland’s unique nature, closely-knit population, and enterprising spirit have all contributed to a dynamic, original cultural scene.

Iceland has one of the most dynamic cuisines and thrilling recipes,  you must try one of the many Icelandic fishing restaurants.

There is plenty to do in Iceland, experience the northern lights, relax in the geothermal pools, hiking through the unique landscape to even whale watching.

Weather in Iceland

In Iceland, the climate is cold, windy and cloudy for most of the year. Of course, it's a cold country because of the high latitude, and it can receive cold winds from the North Pole, but it's also tempered by the ocean, as well as by the mild Gulf Stream that flows in it. The result is a perpetually unstable climate, with sudden changes in weather and temperature. Summer is very cool throughout Iceland. In Reykjavík, during the warmest months, July and August, lows are around 9 °C (48 °F) and highs around 14 °C (57 °F), while on the north coast they are around 10/12 °C (50/54 °F). Winter in Iceland is not so cold, in fact, the average temperature in plains and coasts is around the freezing point. This means that the temperatures can exceed 0 °C (32 °F) quite often even in winter, and rain can fall instead of snow.
