Iceland Spring Elopements: Elope In Early April - May

Eloping In Iceland


Eloping in Iceland during the Spring features a beautiful mixture of snowfall, snowmelt & greenery. April still features winter conditions, but the perfect time to have a winter elopement without the extreme winter temperatures. Just be aware that not all areas of the Island are accessible in this season due to winter conditions. It's often suggested that if eloping in Iceland during this season to stay closer to Reykjavik. The latitude is better for the season, and can provide warmer temperatures (15-20F) compared to the northern areas.

Summer Elopements In Iceland: Elope In June - August


The wildflowers are in full bloom, the Island is fully accessible, and the midnight sun provides a seemingly never-ending golden hour. It's without a doubt the most beautiful time to elope in Iceland. Though beautiful, it also attracts the highest amount of visitors. Most easily accessible locations will be crowded, and privacy could be limited. What's the best way to elope in Iceland during the summer? Consider eloping at midnight or later. You'll likely have the best colors in your photos & incredible locations all to yourself.

Fall Elopements In Iceland: Elope In August - Late October


Like most places around the world, Autumn provides an incredible array of colors. In Iceland, this season brings cooler temps, fewer tourists and lower accommodation costs. It's also known to be the Islands windier season as temps begin to drop and the days become shorter. Regardless of the conditions, it's an absolutely beautiful (and affordable) time to elope in Iceland. As you near the Winter months, you'll also improve your chances of seeing the Northern Lights, as well as higher chances of snowfall.

Winter Elopements In Iceland: Elope In November - April


While the days become very short during Icelandic Winters (4-5 hours at the shortest) there is still a great upside to this season. The glaciers are at their largest, vibrant ice caves begin to form. You'll be able to see some of the more famous landscapes in a more rare form, which would leave you with an incredible photo collection. Overall, it's cold. The average high temps for the southern part of the Island is around 32F, while lows can drop into the negatives. If you're an avid winter dweller, this might just be the time for you.

Hence the name, 'Iceland,' there is plenty of ice to be found here. Glaciers are a huge part of Icelands visual offerings. Vatnajökull National Park has some of the countries most notable glaciers, most of which are very accessible. Other notable glaciers are located farther to the north in central Iceland. There are also more (but smaller) located in the Northwest Fjords.

These aren't your typical tropical beachfronts. With black sands and large peaks in the near distance, it's quite ethereal. With a high amount of volcanic activity in Iceland, it's a staple on most parts on the Island. These black sand beaches photograph incredibly well (especially light colors) and would be an incredible sight to experience.

The mountains in Iceland are a bit different than the ones in the US. With Iceland largely being treeless, the mountains give you beautiful views of the surrounding landscapes. Some feature grassy tops, while others are more volcanic in nature. Regardless, they're in abundance and absolutely beautiful to have as the backdrop of your elopement.

There are over 10,000 waterfalls in Iceland, each uniquely beautiful in their own way. With some reaching heights of nearly 700ft, others are equally wide. In canyons, on cliffs, wherever you can think, they're there & beautiful. While some are hot tourists locations, there are still plenty of beautiful falls that are little more out of the public eye.

Backpacking In Iceland

This is without a doubt one of the most popular things to do in Iceland. With an abundance of beautiful views, it's the perfect place. If you want to hike to say your vows and take some photos, look no further. I help 90% of my couples find locations that are perfect for them & their physical level.

Want a few pictures in the beautiful scenery but don't want to be there all day? No worries! Iceland has plenty to offer with a lavish local culture. I can't think of a better way to celebrate a new beginning together than a new experience together. From top tier seafood & delicacies, there's a wide range of food for everyone. With many shops being locally owned, it's without a doubt a true experience.

From private helicopter tours that will land on mountains to off-roading on some of the abundant non-paved 4x4 roads, there's so much to see & offer. Other highly touted explorations include snowmobiling on glaciers, as well as private boating tours with incredible views of the coastline. Like most other things in Iceland, the options are endless to experience the vast beauty.

While there are so many beautiful locations accessible by vehicle, there are also some untapped gems only accessible by foot or boat. If you're an avid hiker or camper you know eloping in Iceland in the Summer provides a mecca of everything outdoors. We could hike in, camp, have a relaxed photoshoot that evening, then wake up to a grand sunrise, or just shoot all night. Your choice!

Getting To Iceland For Your Elopement

That's right! I can help you find the best rates for travel, or just the ones that work best for your schedule. Travel isn't the easiest in some places and can seem very unfamiliar, so I'm always more than happy to lend a helping hand wherever I can. While I can't always book these items on your behalf, I can point you in the right direction or give you an array of options for you to make a good, informed decision.

Traveling To Iceland For Your Elopement

Booking A Flight To Iceland


First step is getting there! Like the statement above, I'm always more than happy to help my couples find the best rates & schedules to their destination. While I can't book the flights for you, I'll be there for you every step of the way. If you're a seasoned travel pro, no worries! Just do your thing & I'll see you there!

Getting Around Iceland


Since we'll likely be away from forms of public transit, renting a vehicle is your best bet to get around. The vehicle you select to rent during your stay is also key. For instance, if there's a possibility of snow being present, 4WD or AWD is needed. Likewise, if you're on a summer trip and plan on sticking to main roads, it's not always a necessity. Regardless, I'll walk you all through the details and make sure you're prepared, informed & confident when booking your transportation! I'm also more than happy to chauffeur you to our locations the day of your elopement, but cannot provide that service outside of your date.

The Best Time Of Year To Elope In Iceland


While Iceland is uniquely beautiful year-round, the most popular months to visit Iceland are June - August. During these months the weather is beautiful & there can be up to 24 hours of light. September-October is my personal favorite, as tourism is starting to wind down.
