The sun hadn’t set fully, yet they were so bright they were dancing over this triangular mountain Kirkjufell, Iceland

During winter time (sept-march) you get the sun up for about 4-5 hours a day (given it’s not cloudy, which it is quite alot).

From may to beginning of August the sun goes down for about 2 hours tops (middle of June the sun doesn’t go down at all, especially in the northern part of Iceland).

If you’re going mostly for the Aurora’s then best bet is winter time. You need clear skies, preferably frosty nights (skies get more clearer when it’s cold so it’s usually best if it’s well below 0ยฐc). Best is to go out of the city as the “light pollution” from the city tends to numb down the effect of Aurora’s, but you can see them.

If you want to see the midnight sun go touch the horizon and go back up – june is the best time and the Northern part of Iceland is better.

If you want to travel around the country – go in the summer, most of the off-roads (to the mountains and walk-ways over the highlands) are closed from late August until the summer thaw. And please, don’t rent a Yaris, take a bigger car. Unless you want to get picked up by our ICE-SAR (Icelandic mountain search and rescue..) like a bunch of other tourists have to do each year.. ๐Ÿ™‚
