The country that gave us the Blue Lagoon has a little something for everyone in the natural wonders department—lunar landscapes, active volcanoes, mind-blowing geysers, sublime waterfalls, the midnight sun and the northern lights. While Iceland is a year-round destination, the best time to visit is from June to August when the sun doesn’t fully set below the horizon. And contrary to what the name suggests, Iceland is not as cold as you might think with a temperate climate all year long. There is a popular saying, though: if you don’t like the weather just wait five minutes. The weather is definitely fickle here and it’s advisable to pack wind and water-resistant clothing that can be layered up and down.
