Weather and Climate

Iceland enjoys a much milder climate than its name and location adjacent to the Arctic circle would imply. The smmer tourist season is from late May to early September. During the first half of this period the sun stays above the horizon for almost 24 hours and the interplay of light and shadows on mountains, lava fields and glaciers yield an ever changing landscape. During daytime, the air is usually cool or refreshing, and cold during nighttime.
