Celebrate Summer Solstice on June 20th!

Have you ever felt like running in the midnight sun? Whether or not running is one of your hobbies, experiencing the Summer Solstice in Iceland is one for the bucket list.

Every year as the sun reaches the highest point in the sky, the world experiences not only the first day of summer, but also the longest day of the year. In Iceland this day is marked with 24 hour sun and countless activities to celebrate the day.

Across the country there are numerous public events to take part in including the Iceland Midnight Sun Half-Marathon, the Fjorukrain Viking Festival, and even a nature walk with a guide to learn about the ancient legends of Icelandic fairies and trolls!
