Midnight Sun

We are excited to tell you about a new tour we will be offering during summer.

North of the Polar Circle a natural phenomenon occurs. We call it the midnight sun. There’s something strangely exotic about visiting a place so close to one of the poles that the sun refuses to set for a chunk of the year. From May and through August the skies blaze with shades of pink and gold through the night, making indelible impressions on travellers and locals alike.

Around the summer solstice (June 21st) the sun is visible for the full 24 hours, given fair weather. During the rest of the summer, the sun briefly dips beyond the horizon before rising again, blurring the boundaries between fading night and dawning day. During those few magic moments, the sun casts glows of illumination throughout the dusk. The eerie light creates an ambience that fits Iceland’s myths and legends.

If you dream of experiencing the midnight sun, there is no better way than to dash across the white plains of Langjökull glacier on a snowmobile while bathing in the golden glow.
