The Midnight Sun in Iceland

Many people who visit Iceland during summer experience the power and beauty of the Midnight Sun, when the day is almost 24 hours long.

Due to its northerly position and the Earth’s axial tilt, you can experience daylight for almost 24 hours in Iceland during summer.

The light here in Iceland is one of a kind, spectacular and breathtaking. It brings out the vibrant colors of this geographically speaking young island and many people say that they feel as if the landscape is surreal and alien.

Perhaps this is one of the reasons why many Hollywood productions come here to film, especially films that take place on other worlds.

The Power of the Midnight Sun

One of the first thing you will notice when visiting Iceland during high summer is the long hours of daylight. Many tourists have even found it hard to sleep, since the night is as bright as the day.

We often recommend that our visitors bring a sleeping mask, which can really help you sleep if you find it hard falling a sleep when the sun in shining.

However, going early to sleep is an opportunity missed! Seeing the sun fall low on the horizon, casting the sky in myriad of colors and creating an immense spectacle of colors and shadows, is a unique experience.
