One of the many things that makes Iceland so stunning is the fact that its landscape changes with each and every season, meaning no two visits are ever the same. If you’re hoping to fall in love with this country all over again, you might want to consider scheduling your next trip in autumn when the weather cools and snow begins to cover the mountains (despite what you may think of winter, Iceland can be enjoyed year round). Here are just five reasons why autumn is perhaps the best time to visit Iceland.
The Icelandic summer is a magical time, with midnight sun and long days. But to experience the country in full, you need to visit in the fall. The leaves turn into beautiful shades of reds, oranges and yellows and the landscape becomes an enchanting mix of colors. Plus, it’s not as hot as it is during the summer months!
One of the most beautiful sights in Iceland is the Northern Lights. They are often seen from September to April, but if you want to see them in their full glory then make sure to visit in October. The Northern Lights are best viewed from around 9:00pm – 11:00pm on a clear night. Make sure you wear warm clothing and have some hot chocolate ready!
October is a great time to visit Iceland. The weather is beautiful and there are a ton of festivals happening all over the country. From the Icelandic Film Festival to the Reykjavik Fringe Festival, October has some of the most amazing events. So, if you haven’t made your plans yet, I hope this blog post inspires you to head off on an adventure in October!
