What is the best time of year to travel to Iceland?

If you have not yet decided to come, surely you are wondering, what is the best time to travel to Iceland? Most tourists visit the island between the months of June and August because there are many hours of daylight, better weather and the roads are in better condition. However, in recent years, the influx of travelers has increased during the months of May and September as well, as travelers seek better prices while still capitalizing on the good weather. Even in winter, more and more tourists arrive, whose dream is to see the northern lights while enjoying those winter postcard landscapes and experience greater tranquility. Therefore, there is no single answer but you should know that this increase in tourists makes it increasingly difficult to find accommodation. Therefore, with this introduction to Iceland, we hope to save you a lot of time and money.

When should I book my accommodation in Iceland? What are the cheaper times to visit Iceland?

When do I have to book the accommodations and at what time are they cheaper? As an introduction to Iceland, the first thing you have to know is that the prices are quite high and the demand outweighs the supply, so it is very important to book accommodation, the travel package or the motorhomes well in advance. In some places on the island, such as the south and southeast of Iceland, all options are sold out several months in advance. As for the prices, some accommodations consider the middle season the months of May and September, while for others it is already high season, so the prices are more expensive. The low season takes place during the winter, between the months of October and April, although it is also the most popular time to see Northern Lights. During these months some hotels around the island remain closed, as well as campsites, so it is not easy to find accommodation and you can not leave it till the last minute. Moreover, hotels in Reykjavík are usually filled even more. For example, if you want to travel to Iceland on New Year's Eve, you have to book your accommodation in the capital several months in advance.

How much money should I expect to spend in Iceland?

How much money do I need? The most important thing to start preparing your trip to Iceland is to set the budget you have. In this way, you can decide what type of trip you can afford and the duration of the trip. The ideal is a 7-11 night trip to have time to see the main places of the island and not spend too much money. It is advisable to spend the first and last night in Reykjavík (or in Keflavík, near the airport, if your flight arrives too late at night or leaves very early in the morning). In Reykjavík you have many more options for fun, dinner, shopping, etc., but it is almost 1 hour from Keflavík International Airport. If your flight leaves at 07:00 in the morning or before, it may be worth staying directly in Keflavík city, about 5-10 minutes from the airport, which will save you time and money, as accommodation in Keflavík It is cheaper than in the capital.
