Best time to travel
August to October
Iceland in the Autumn months is one of the best times to visit the country – with the midnight sun finally setting the colours on the horizon begin to burst with fascinating displays, some of which might also give you a glimpse of the aurora borealis whose season begins at the end of August.
It is also a perfect time to head on a self-drive trip to explore parts of the island as the weather is generally much better at this time of year and there are still plenty of hours of light for you to discover your surroundings without the threat of it getting dark so quickly.
This suggested itinerary has you spend some time in the capital city before heading out to the south to a beautiful retreat, a perfect location for those autumnal evenings gazing at the night sky!
