For a period of about 2 months, between May 15th and July 15th roughly, the sun in Iceland doesn’t set, and it never really gets dark. Sure, it gets a bit darker, but there is no direct sunlight. What you end up is this wonderful glow; that lights up the sky. It's the alluring midnight sun.
This week, we want to tell you why you should push through your instincts to sleep during the night, and perhaps even invert it! It’s too magical to miss, and take our word for it, your eyes and spirit will thank you.
Here are our top 5 reason to hike in the midnight sun.
1. It’s Magnificent!
This time in Iceland is remarkable. There is a soft glow over everything, and your eyes constantly deceive you. This light brings out colours in the landscape that you didn't know were possible; subtle tones, reflection, nuances and details that you had never noticed before. Thorsmork is a particularly remarkable area for this reason.
