Reasons to visit Iceland during this time of year months are plentiful. Visitors can expect to experience the benefits of an Icelandic summer but without the high-season prices and large crowds. With the harshness of the winter months subsiding, the days stretch to over 16 glorious hours of daylight by mid-April, offering more time to take in the stunning sights such as the Golden Circle’s Gullfoss, Geysir and Thingvellir National Park.
In recent years, Iceland‘s rugged landscape has gained notoriety having featured heavily in the fourth and fifth seasons of the HBO series Game of Thrones. With the sixth season just around the corner, now is your chance to walk in the footsteps of your favourite characters and see the striking landscapes that are the set of the North of the Seven Kingdoms.
Filming of Fast 8 is also currently taking place in Iceland, set to be released in April 2017.
