August in Iceland (2015)

August-2015Hæ. Welcome.

August in Iceland is a fun month. We‘re getting towards the end of summer, which means it‘ll start getting dark again, a bit colder, and we‘ll reunite with the Northern Lights.

This last month of summer is always filled with activities and things to do, with the staple events being the annual Pride celebration, the Reykjavik Marathon and Reykjavik Culture Night.
All these events are covered in this magazine, so go ahead and check it out.

We at What‘s On love Pride. This is an amazing celebration of diversity, of people being who they are, unafraid, and, well, one huge party. If you‘re in Reykjavik during Pride, make sure you‘re in the downtown, as this is a parade you‘ll not want to miss.

The Reykjavik Marathon is also always fun. Varying distances are available, so everyone should be able to find something to their liking. They even have the Lazy Town race, specifically designed for children! A great event, that‘s definitely worth catching.

Then we have Reykjavik Culture Night, which is generally one of the biggest events of the year, where Icelanders flock en masse to downtown Reykjavik, to partake in a bit of culture. I‘m sure you‘ve caught the theme by now – it‘s great fun and you won‘t want to miss it!

So have fun in Iceland in August and hope to see you again!
