Say hi to Iceland in July. Summer is such a big thing in Iceland that they even celebrate the first day known as Sumardagurinn. The nights are warmer with the days longer than usual.
You must experience the midnight sun during this period, with a bucket list of fun things to do, start by checking out where two tectonic plates meet at the Pingvellir National Park.
It’s a time to swim in warm ocean waters, watch whales and puffins plus visit exotic islands with a history of sorcery and witchcraft.
