TRAVELLING TO ICELAND IN APRIL
Visiting Iceland in April lets you experience the quieter side of the country. As it is still winter, there's lighter traffic for driving, fewer visitors at the famous sites and more availability of accommodations around the country. Yet the city centre of Reykjavik stays lively during April, with an abundance of cafes, bars, restaurants, museums, shops, galleries and thermal swimming pools.
April has a good balance of daylight and darkness, giving travellers ample time for sightseeing and activities during the day and chances to see the northern lights at night. Even with the fickle April weather (that can sometimes feel like all four seasons in one day), you can experience just about all of Iceland’s top attractions: waterfalls, glaciers, hot springs, lava fields, geothermal baths and more.
Short breaks in Reykjavik with pre-planned guided day tours are popular at this time of year, as are week-long road trips in South and West Iceland. With 10 days or more, it’s also possible to drive around the entire Ring Road in April. Don’t want to drive in wintry conditions? Small group tours with local guides are another great idea for experiencing Iceland’s countryside and northern lights in April.
