Must See Tours

Must See In Iceland aims to guide you through Iceland like a friend. An extremely good friend who tells it like it is. But with a dash of humor, because what is life without humor?
We want to show you the gems that are hidden in Iceland, not just those who are made by Mother Nature, but also the restaurants, the museums, the bars, the attractions, the shops and places that are well worth the visit – even though they are not mentioned in every other guide book you read.
The same goes with the tours we sell. We won’t offer you 100 different Golden Circle Tours to choose from. We’ll narrow it down to the tours we think you get the most out of and recommend them to you. Sounds good, right? Well, it is!

F.A.Q:

What is Secret Solstice?

Secret Solstice is an Icelandic music festival in it’s fourth year that will take place on the 15th – 18th of June 2017. It showcases both established artists as well as exciting up-and-coming talent over the course of four days in the 24 hour midnight sun during the summer solstice. The festival is themed after the Norse religion and mythology of old and along with our side-event it’s been described as “one of the most unique events in the world”.

Wait a minute? 24 hour sunlight?

Because of how close Iceland is situated to the arctic circle, the nation gets the full on effect of seasonal changes on a unique scale. During the summer we get long sunny days and as expected winter comes with complete darkness.

Norse mythology? Tell me more?

The summer solstice was a time of bounty in the lives of the Nordic nations and a cause for celebration. The Norse mythology and religion commonly known as the Ásatru is deeply rooted in natural symbolism.

Side-Events?

The festival operates a number of side-events alongside the festival itself. We’ve already announced 2 of this years side-events “Secret Solstice presents Into The Glacier 2017” and “Secret Solstice presents The Midnight Sun Boat Party”. You can read more about these events and book tickets here.

Where is it?

The festival takes place in the Laugardalur area in Icelands capital city Reykjavík. The exact address is Engjavegur 7, 104 Reykjavík.

When does the festival take place?

The festival takes place from the 15th – 18th of June 2017 over the summer solstice. During that period Iceland has 24-hour sunlight which definitely provides a very unique atmosphere for the festival.

What kind of music can one hear there?:

The festival aims for a very diverse selection of music from both local and international, established and up-and-coming talent.

Who’s playing?

Too many to mention but a lot of amazing music. The full lineup is available here.

Where can I get a ticket?

As long as you‘re 18 years old tickets are available for purchase. You can purchase a ticket in ISK here and EUR here.

What about on-site accommodation and services?

On site camping is available and can be booked in ISK here and for EUR here. On site there is a varied selection of food vendors to satisfy any taste and dietary preference as well as various merchandise stands.

What about off-site?

There are many hotels and hostels of varying quality depending on what you are after around the area and a bit further off (Reykjavik is a pretty small city so you can pretty much stay anywhere and still be close)).

What‘s the local currency and how expensive is it?

Iceland uses it‘s own currency called krónur which you can exchange most foreign currencies for at all local banks or the foreign exchange at Keflavik airport.

How to get there?

You can book flights through our travel partner WOW air here.

What about the weather? What should I wear?

Icelandic weather can be very temperamental so you should bring clothes for most situations. Still this time of year tends to pretty mild so you should be fine with light protective clothing. Just pay attention to the forecast and consider what you want to do during your stay.
