Reykjavik, the capital city of Iceland, is hardly a frigid, icy city: With vivacious nightlife, immaculate museums, and a packed cultural agenda that features a multitude of celebrations throughout the year, it’s no wonder that tourists from around the world are hustling to book flights to Reykjavik to see what all the fuss is about. 

In 2008, Iceland experienced an economic crisis when the government seized the country’s major banks. Since then, visitors have been pouring into Reykjavik thanks to the more advantageous exchange rate against the U.S. dollar and EURO. While you’re in Reykjavik, embrace the local culture and visit one of the many exhibits commemorating the feats of the Vikings. 

From art works to performance shows, it’s easy to see that Reykjavik is a city that treasures time honored tradition while embracing the exciting, fresh pulse of the young talent and drive of the modern city.

Reykjavik, Iceland climate

Winters in Iceland are undoubtedly cold, and Reykjavik is no exception to the frigid chill that resides in the country from late November through April. This northernmost European capital city is prone to snow squalls between the months of December and March, courtesy of the strong winds coming off the Atlantic. Regardless of when you book your flight to Reykjavik, keep in mind that the city experiences over 200 rainy days a year so it’s wise to pack an umbrella in your carry-on.

Best Time to Fly to Reykjavik, Iceland

Whether you’re hoping to see Bjork in her native city or you’re basking in the ethereal glow of the Northern Lights in the wintertime, there’s no wrong time to book your Reykjavik flight. 

Peak Season: 

Summer is undeniably the most popular season to book flights to Reykjavik. The weather in Iceland is on its best behavior and people take advantage of the sunshine, which can last as long as 22 hours a day. Reykjavik’s most celebrated events take place in the summertime, namely the festivals surrounding the Summer Solstice on June 21st, and Independence Day, which is observed just days before on June 17th. 

Off-Peak Season

Cheap flights to Reykjavik are plentiful in the wintertime, when temperatures plummet and the sun peeps out for only a few hours during the day. Thorrablot, the mid-winter festival that takes place in the last week of January, is well worth a Reykjavik cheap flight for a glimpse of Viking culinary traditions and rowdy dancing. The stunning Northern Lights, or aurora borealis, can only be seen on winter nights. If you’re hoping to witness the starry light formation book your flight to Iceland in between the months of September and April.

They don’t run all day, but there are some night buses. Watch your budget when you’re out late at night because taxis can be expensive.

The Reykjavik Welcome Card is available in increments of 24, 48 or 72 hours and also ensures free transit on the Strætó network for the duration of the time you purchased.
