Iceland's actual tourist season stretches from June to September, and it is also advisable to visit northern Iceland in this period. In the summertime there are two or three months of almost constant daylight, while the sun only appears for two or three hours a day during the wintertime from November to January. From the northern-most point of Iceland, the island of Grimsey, you can also see the midnight sun.
