Questions & Answers

Here we have collected and answered the most frequently asked questions.

  • When is it daylight in Iceland?

    Summer visitors who arrive to a bright midnight sky and ask when it gets dark in Iceland are sometimes told “in the middle of August.” The sun barely sets in the summer and it´s light round-the-clock in the north at the peak of summer. In mid-winter, expect only about four to five hours of daylight a day.

  • What is the currency in Iceland?

    The Icelandic króna (ISK). All major currencies can be exchanged at the airport, banks and currency exchanges. Visa and MasterCard are accepted almost universally, and ATMs are generally not hard to find.

  • How many people will be in my group?

    This depends on the nature of the excursion and the season of travel, but our rule is.
    Super Jeep tours: Maximum 6 persons per jeep
    Minibus: Maximum 16 persons per minibus
    Bus tours: We do not travel this way in any of our tours. But…
    Exeption A) Big Private groups
    Exeption B) When we book for you with other tour operator then Saga Travel

  • What are Icelandic people like?

    Quite Nordic personality, exceptionally friendly, highly educated, sophisticated, attractive, honest and very modern. Their ancestors were predominantly Norwegian, although some came from the British Isles. There are no Inuits in Iceland.

  • What clothing should I bring?

    In the summer, light clothing is often all you need – but always be prepared for both cold and wet weather at all times of the year. The weather can be extremely changeable. Icelanders often say, “If you don´t like the weather, just wait 15 minutes.” And always bring a bathing suit, whatever time of the year you visit. A favourite pastime is year-round outdoor swimming in countless geothermally heated pools and lagoons, with a typical temperature of 25-28°C.

  • How cold does it get in Iceland?

    Thanks to the Gulf Stream, Iceland isn´t as cold as it sounds. Temperatures are moderate year-round. Average July temperatures are around 10°C and the north and east are often the warmest parts in the summer. Snow is not the orm and only settles intermittently in the south but tends to stay longer in the north. Fine winter skiing areas are found on higher ground outside many towns, however. Average January temperatures in Reykjavík, at around zero, are actually higher than those in New York.
