- Spring in Iceland. Spring might be the best time of year to visit Iceland—aside from the busy tourist season of summer—because of its crisp weather, normal daylight hours (compared to North America), and significantly cheaper pricing for accommodations, flights, and travel.
- Summer in Iceland. Summer is the height of tourist season in Iceland, and in midsummer—during the entire months of June and July—daylight takes over during a time known as the Midnight Sun, when there is virtually no nighttime darkness.
- Fall in Iceland. As September comes around, the tourist season abruptly ends and many museums outside of Reykjavik close down until the following summer.
- Winter in Iceland. Prices for airfare are drastically lower in the winter season due to a decrease in tourists traveling to the country, but keep in mind that Christmas and holiday travel will still be slightly more expensive than other non-peak travel days.
