Summer is here and it time to go out and play!
Icelanders love and cherish summer. The endless light, the access to nature and the wide open spaces beckon to us to go out and play. We love summer so much that we always forgive it for its fickle weather, putting a brave face on as we slurp our ice cream under the sun during a balmy 5°C day with freezing winds.
The endless days: during summer we can play all day and all night. We can decide to do a bike ride at 10PM, wake up for a morning hike at 4AM and chase the sun along the horizon during a midnight boat tour. Most of us do keep normal hours, though, preferring the relative warmth of the midday to the beautiful chill of midnight.
In Iceland, weather is a state of mind, and as the cliche goes, there is no such thing as bad weather – only bad gear choices. And when the sun does come out, there is no purer joy than to tear off layers of clothes and feel its warmth on your skin.
At Sóti Summits, we offer a range of day tours during the summer aimed at allowing you to experience the true beauty of the Icelandic summer:
