July in Iceland (2013)

What's On Magazine - July 2013

13JulHello and welcome to the July edition of What’s On in Reykjavik! On the cover you can see a very typical scene for July in Iceland: Youths camping in a grassy valley by Seljalandsfoss, an amazing waterfall in the south of Iceland that you can actually walk behind in a natural cave.

The cover is descriptive of July in Iceland in many ways. It is taken at night(!) in the midnight sun, something you will experience this month (whether you want to or not). July is one of the warmest months of the year so camping out and traveling the country in general is popular for both locals and tourists alike. Everybody puts on shorts and t-shirts (regardless of weather – it’s the principle of the matter!) and roams the countryside. That is, unless they stay in town and party till the sun goes down. Which it doesn’t in July. Which explains a lot.

Between the Museum Day on the 7th of July, the amazing nature, the International Organ Summer in Hallgrímskirkja church and the various upcoming concerts, there’s a lot to see in and around Reykjavik this month.
