Best Time to Visit Reykjavik
Reykjavik is a world of extremes - during the summer months of June to August, the city receives almost 24 hours of sunshine whilst the winter months from November to March sees as little as 4-5 hours of sunlight per day. But don’t rush to book your summer holiday yet, though, as the darkness of winter has an unexpected benefit. Being the world’s most northerly capital city, Reykjavik is one of the very few places in the world where the famously ethereal (and elusive) Northern Lights can be observed. This observance can only take place in winter, though, when the sun gives way for other luminescent lights to shine.
Things to do in Reykjavik
In a place where the natural conditions and scenic beauty are as extreme as Reykjavik, one’s activities whilst there should reflect a similarly extreme nature. Challenge yourself with a foray down into an Icelandic volcano, as Reykjavik is one of the very few places you can actually do so. Explore the inside of the Thrihnukagigur volcano (also known as Three Peaks Crater, for those who can’t wrap their tongues around that name) all the way down to its magma chamber, riding in an old-fashioned mining cart. Now there’s a holiday experience you won’t forget in a hurry.
Next extreme activity? Taking off your clothes in the middle of that cold weather, and soaking in an outdoor geothermal lagoon. The Nauthólsvík Geothermal Beach isn’t your typical tropical paradise, though the golden sands and blue waters look awfully similar. The geothermal water in the blue lagoon is heated to a comfortable 18-20 degrees, so you can enjoy a beach experience even in the sub-arctic climate.
