Amongst the most coveted travel destinations, Iceland is one of the most surreal and magnificent countries in the world. Located close to the Arctic Circle, it offers amazingly dramatic and breath-taking landscapes and exotic natural phenomena. Summer is the best time to visit, owing to the mild temperatures and a plethora of available activities from hiking fjords to playing golf at midnight. However, no time is a bad time to visit this spectacular snow-covered country.

From Mid-June through August; November-March is the best time to visit Iceland
North Iceland which is a home to biggest volcanoes, lava fields, and waterfalls
Extraordinary sights. Spectacular landscapes. Unique cultural practices. Distinguished cuisine.
Extreme and unpredictable weather conditions. Rough, difficult to scale terrains. Remote and hence, expensive. Hard to reach.
Clean, airy and well-maintained basic hotel rooms are easily available; however, they can be on the expensive side. The Fosshotel chain of hotels, located near the best sightseeing spots, is among the most popular options available to tourists as the hotels serve exquisite Scandinavian delicacies and provide free internet. Of these, Fosshotel Westfjords and Fosshotel Reykjavik are particularly famous. A second option is the Icelandair chain of hotels that are upscale and built Scandinavian style. Guesthouses, considered a notch above hostel rooms, are also available to tourists. Accommodation by the Icelandic Farm Holidays in the form of bed and breakfasts, country hotels, cottages, and apartments is one of the best in the category. However, most of these are tucked away in rural corners, disconnected from the main city. For budget travelling, Hostelling International Iceland provides the best hostel stay and an alternative is getting a short-term accommodation rental site i.e. a room in someone's private home. For adventure-seekers, camping and hiring mountain huts are also viable options.
