Weather details in july

The climate throughout July in Iceland is mild, despite rising rainfall. As the snowfall has ended, one will benefit from more acceptable climatic conditions. July is the best time to discover Iceland as a whole. North and South, one will benefit from a program brimming with good weather - even if it only lasts a few days.

July in Reykjavik and South-western Iceland

The heat in Reykjavik is pleasantly gentle, especially in the middle of the day. Temperatures peak at around 15˚ C. These are the best temperatures one can hope to have in Iceland. However, the climate may change overnight - due to the influence of the nearby ocean. The rest of July sees an alternation of the sun, the rain and a partially covered to completly covered sky.

July in Akureyri and Northern Iceland

The days are bright in Akureyri and its surroundings during the first ten days of the month. Although the morning is relatively cool, the rest of the day is pleasant. However, for about half the month, the weather in Iceland throughout July deteriorates. It is now highly possible to face rainy days. It is necessary to wait until the end of the month to benefit from a beautiful sun and cloud thinnings.

perfect weather good tolerable bad very bad

warning in july the weather is different depending on the city and regions of the country.

That month is not the best month to spend holidays in Iceland. The weather in Húsavík, Selfoss, Keflavík, Mývatn, Eyjafjallajökull, Reykjavik, Akureyri and Grindavík is OK but just acceptable. The sun is not there all the time and you might make you wet by rain often. Nevertheless, if you don't plan a pool & relaxation trip in Iceland but rather nature excursions or a trek, this climate may suit. In addition, there are certainly fewer tourists at this time of year.

But it gets worse: in Ísafjörður and Hofn and surrounding areas where the climate is very bad. It is not recommended to go to these areas in july.
