Experience Your Best Iceland Vacation

Known as the land of fire and ice, Iceland is famous for its cold weather and active volcanoes. This small Nordic country is much more than its unique landscape though, which you are sure to find out when you visit this frozen island.

Whether you are more interested in exploring its rough terrain or its nightlife, this country of contrasts will keep your days filled with plenty of places to explore and things to do. Descend into the volcanic chamber of Thrihnukagigur or visit the Húsavík Whale Museum before heading out on a whale-watching expedition. Your adventure begins with booking your travel on Orbitz.com.

Best time to take a vacation to Iceland

July and August are the best months to plan a trip to Iceland, when the land is least likely to be covered with frost. The average maximum temperature during these months is 57 degrees Fahrenheit, whereas the average highs during the winter months barely rise above freezing. Most tourist attractions outside the capital city Reykjavik are closed from September through May, making tourism during those months much more difficult, and many tours do not begin operating until July due to snow cover on the ground. Reserve your travel accommodations in advance with Orbitz.com to take advantage of the small window of tourism in Iceland.
