Snæfellsjökull Midnight Sun Snow-cat Tour

While the winter nights bless us with fantastic shows of lights dancing in the Icelandic skies, Icelandic summers transform Iceland into the land of the Midnight Sun. In the summertime in Iceland, days are long and the nights are bright, with the sun setting just before midnight and rising again shortly after.

The peak of Iceland’s Midnight Sun is around the summer solstice, June 21st, but the brightness of the Midnight Sun can be experienced in Iceland from mid-May to mid-August when the evening skies are often colored with beautiful shades of pink, orange, and red.

To enjoy this beautiful show of nature, we will be offering our snow-cat tours on Snæfellsjökull also in the evening this summer, to experience the Midnight Sun from the top of Snæfellsjökull glacier. Our Snæfellsjökull Midnight Sun Snow-cat Tour is similar to our regular Snæfellsjökull Top of the Diamond Snow-cat Tour but it is in the evening!

During our Snæfellsjökull Midnight Sun Snow-cat Tour, our snowcat takes you to the top of Snæfellsjökull glacier, where you can enjoy the magical light of the Midnight Sun over the glacier and the surrounding Snæfellsnes Peninsula.
