The summer activities e.g. horseback riding tours, whale watching, seal watching, hiking, river rafting and the geothermal baths await you. The nights are bright, and it truly is a unique experience to watch the sun hover over the horizon before it rises again. Imagine experiencing the midnight sun at the northernmost points of Iceland, there are no words.
