TRAVEL TO ICELAND IN MAY
May is the start of the summer travel season in Iceland. Yet unlike the peak tourism period of June to August, visiting Iceland in May means lighter traffic for driving, fewer crowds at popular sites and better availability of accommodations. And with mild temperatures, May is a great month for road trips, hiking and a wide variety of guided day tours.
As the sun sets later and later each night until the 'midnight sun' phenomenon peaks at the summer solstice, a trip to Iceland in May promises plenty of daylight for navigating and sightseeing. You’ll be surprised by how many attractions you can experience in a day, with natural attractions such as waterfalls, glaciers, hot springs, volcanic sites, geothermal baths and more. Though many of these unique highlights are accessible with short 3- to 5-day tours in Reykjavik, May is a fabulous time to explore the whole island with a self-drive tour of 7-10 days or more around the Ring Road.
