Iceland attracts a fair number of tourists in summer months, when the weather is friendlier. There are many engrossingly unique activities you can associate to while planning the itinerary during this time. Here is a short list you can easily dig through as a helpful reference material.
How is it during summer months?
Firstly, when you avail a Private Tour Iceland organized by a renowned agency such as Discover, tailored to your travel aspirations, you should have clear ideas on facts about weather conditions. For example:
- Three months comprise the summer season in Iceland – June, July, August
- Distinctly longer daylight hours
- Cool temperature (10 to13-degree Celsius) with breezy conditions
You would be sweetly surprised to realize that there are some activities in Iceland you can get involved into, which is not possible when you tour the country during winter months, the weather being the main hurdle.
Extensive tour of the mighty highlands
Summer is the perfect time when you can scale the highlands as there would be snow or hailstorm. You can freely roam and discover the vast space in one of the customized Private Tours in Iceland, without any worries about unpredictability of weather.
- With clear views of imposing mountains, paths laden with wildflowers and mystic beaches, you would have no dearth of engrossing views.
- Moreover, if you hire a 4X4 vehicle, it would be easier for you to drive along the sinewy roads, as there would be rarely any fog, mist or heavy showers.
Enjoying an ice-cream in a Reykjavik joint
You have to do this – buy a sumptuous ice-cream (choose your favorite flavor) from a well-known eatery or store in Reykjavik, and enjoy it to your heart’s content. The locals would press on the fact that it is a ‘must-do’ activity during summer months.
Spotting thousands of puffins
Summer is the season when the coasts of Iceland are crowded by hundreds of thousands of puffins. Visiting the lovely Westfjords and witnessing puffins near the sea cliffs is one of the most fascinating experiences you can have while traveling in Iceland.
The Magical Mid-night Sun
Iceland falls within the Arctic Circle. During summer, the sun never sets beyond the horizon, ensuring daylight hours of at least hours. You can watch the sun even at midnight. The best location is from any place in southern fringes of the country. Don’t skip clicking photographs of this unique natural phenomenon.
Boat tours for whale-watching
You can also plan a boat tour for whale-watching that is hugely popular during summer days in Iceland. Reykjavik is an ideal place. You can also consider Husavik in northern Iceland.
