Three days ago, we celebrated The First Day of Summer in Iceland. The summer here has nothing in common with the summer that most people imagine, but still – everybody is excited about it. And no wonder why: the temperature is rising, the landscape is getting covered in vivid colours, and days are becoming extremely long.
To me, the first day of summer is also kind of a border between touristic and non-touristic periods. Unless you enjoy an unbearable crowd and absurd prices, I believe that the most popular places are worth visiting just before the second half of April.
Below is a short guide for those who have very limited time, cannot go too far away from Reykjavik, but want to have a smattering of Iceland and its mesmerizing nature.
Kleifarvatn lake. It gives you a feeling of the sea.
