How does Icelandic summer sound? I often get a question regarding the difference between Iceland in the summer and wintertime. And always say that it is a completely different planet. In the winter – all covered in snow, dark, mostly quiet, when it’s not stormy. Summer is pretty loud. Birds are coming back. There is a lot of rain. Wind. And ocean, obviously. And the sun doesn’t set, therefore nights are pretty loud, too. But in the summer, constant noise makes a background for the melodies sang by thousands of birds.
