Iceland travel

ATTRACTIONS: (a few major)
Iceland's natural beauty is the main draw for visitors to this sparsely populated country.

The travelers to Iceland are enthralled with the geysers, waterfalls, volcanoes, hot water springs, glaciers and wildlife - especially the birds.

Reykjavik, the capital city, is best known for its arts and cultural festivities, nightlife and outdoor geothermal pools.

Although most visitors go to Iceland in the summer months, there are plenty of enjoyable and fun activities in the winter months, including snowmobiling, horseback riding, cross-country skiing and of course, seeing the beautiful lights of the Aurora Borealis.

CONVENTION AND VISITOR BUREAUS:
GENERAL INTEREST:
  • Calling Code: 354
  • Electricity: 220V, 50Hz
  • Drive on the: Right
  • Times to Travel: Mid-June through August is the peak tourist season. The "shoulder seasons" of April and May and then September and October are good times also, and in Reykjavik, many arts and cultural festivals happen during this time.

    Daylight hours in Iceland range from early summer when it is never completely dark to the mid-winter days with only four or five hours of sunshing.

    Due to the Gulf Stream, the temperatures remain cool in the summer and quite mild in the winter. However, Icelandic weather can be volatile, and at times, the weather can change rapidly in one day, from overcast skies, fog, driving wind and rain.
