When to Visit
The best time to visit Arctic Iceland depends on what you want to see and do. If you’re interested in seeing the country’s glaciers and other natural wonders, the best time to visit is between June and August.
However, if you’re more interested in experiencing its culture, the best time to visit is between December and February. Keep in mind that prices for hotels and flights are usually highest during the summer months.
How to Get There
There are a few different ways to get to Arctic Iceland. The most common way is to fly into Keflavik International Airport, which is located just outside Reykjavik. From there, you can either take a domestic flight or drive to your destination. If you’re driving, be sure to rent a car with four-wheel drive, as the roads can be icy and difficult to navigate. You can also take a ferry from Denmark or the Faroe Islands, but this is only an option during the summer months.
