Waiting for summer since 1926

First Day of Summer in Iceland

In Iceland, we are always waiting for summer. In fact, sometimes we wait for summer all "summer" long. On the first Thursday after the 18th of April every year, the wait is over and we celebrate the first day of summer in Iceland, even if the weather disagrees. On that day, there is an old tradition to give a sumargjöf or "summer gift" in English.

This year's summer gift is 66°North
