July is an excellent time to visit Iceland. It is the warmest month of the year (however, do bring a warm jacket…) and gives visitors a chance to enjoy the country’s vivid nature in the midnight sun.
This is the month where you’ll find many locals taking their summer vacation, staying in summer houses around the country or traveling locally. It’s also a time of many small-town local festivals such as the Lobster-Festival in the town of Höfn. This is the most popular month to go camping, hiking and trekking in Iceland as well as 4x4 driving in the highlands. Also an excellent time to visit Hornstrandir Nature reserve in the Westfjords.
