It was so great to meet so many of you at the Destinations Show last weekend- we enjoyed answering all of your questions aboout travelling in Iceland. We noticed that one question was asked a lot more often by a lot of people, which was:

When is the best time to go to Iceland?

To which the simplest reply is, any time!

It really depends on what you'd like to see and do. A lot of our excursions such as whale watching and the Blue Lagoon are available all year round so there's always plenty to do no matter when you choose to travel.

The Northern Lights are visible anytime between October and March but can be seen as early as September and as late as mid April. Visbility is very weather dependent so we can't guarantee one month is better than the next- but if you visit for 7 nights you're likely to see the Northern Lights about 2 or 3 times. Our Northern Lights breaks vary from 3 nights to 14 nights meaning there are lots of options even in winter.

In the winter you are also more likely to have- you guessed it- snow. December 2015 saw a record snowfall in Reykjavik but city walking tours happened regardless and there were some excellent photo opportunities!

In the summer the Ring Road of Iceland is most accessible, which makes it ideal for self-drove breaks. Out Complete Iceland package is a 14 night holiday which allows you time to explore the entire country, broadening your horizons to see the most of our amazing homeland.

This also means the East and Westfjords of Iceland are more accessible- and well worth a visit if you're a nature lover. With some of the largest glaciers and bird cliffs in Europe, these lesser spoke of areas in Iceland are still locations for an ideal break.
