May in Iceland has officially brought about the month of spring meaning warmer weather, especially in Southern Iceland, and many outdoor adventures to enjoy. Iceland's nature starts to truly come alive in the month of May, as flowers begin to bloom and the island starts to become greener as trees and grass begin coming back to life.
Snowfall is always still likely in May, but much less likely than it is in April, making May the perfect time to visit for those who want to visit Iceland with milder temperatures and potentially no sight of snow on the ground. Snow can still be seen from afar on the mountaintops, but for the most will stay off of Iceland's main roads.
One benefit to visiting Iceland in May is that oftentimes, flights, accommodation, and even car rentals will be cheaper during the month of May, prior to the start of summer. On top of cheaper prices, outdoor activities start happening in full swing, with tons of excellent adventures that are catered towards the warmer months such as Kayaking on Sólheimajökull’s smooth glacier lagoon.
