TRAVELLING TO ICELAND IN OCTOBER
To experience the quieter side of Iceland, October is a fantastic month to visit. As the start of the winter travel season in Iceland, there's lighter traffic for driving around the Ring Road, fewer visitors at the major tourist attractions and more availability of accommodations around the country. Yet the city of Reykjavik stays as lively as ever with a diverse line-up of cultural events in October, such as the annual lighting of Yoko Ono's Imagine Peace Tower.
With the onset of winter, a trip to Iceland in October also brings good opportunities to see the colourful northern lights dancing in the skies. With balanced daylight and darkness hours from the autumnal equinox, travellers have ample time for sightseeing and outdoor activities during the day and increased chances to look for the northern lights at night.
You do need to dress in warm layers for October’s changeable weather conditions, but you can still experience just about all types of attractions: waterfalls, glaciers, hot springs, lava fields, geothermal baths and more. You can visit such highlights in short tours of 5 days or less in Reykjavik, or to see more hidden gems, you can spend 7 days or more on a guided tour or road trip into the countryside.
