Last September(2019) i visited iceland and travelled around the country on a budget. so i thought i can give you a price break up of my trip in the video below

Iceland, a Nordic island nation, is defined by its dramatic landscape with volcanoes, geysers, glaciers, hot springs and lava fields. Most of the population lives in the capital, Reykjavik

When is the Best Time to Visit Iceland?

The best weather in Iceland is from May to August when you can expect pleasant temperatures and long days. But this is also high season and hotels, tours, and flights should be booked many months in advance. April and September are reasonable alternatives with decent weather, shorter days, smaller crowds, and cheaper prices.

Best Time to See the Northern Lights: Many people come to Iceland hoping to see the northern lights. It’s an ideal place to do so. which is why the best time to see them is from late September through late March, when there are full dark nights. Another important factor is the weather – cold, clear nights are best and Solar flares on the sun or solar wind is also required When all of these conditions are met, you’ll have the best chance to view the northern lights

Midnight Sun: Iceland’s high season falls during the peak of summer, when the days are very long (the sun never completely sets on the longest day of the year), allowing visitors to enjoy the country’s myriad of outdoor adventures in the Midnight Sun.
