VIDEO: Winter Returns to Iceland – Snowstorm in June

Winter has returned to Iceland!

Officially, summer should have already started in Iceland in late April – at least according to the old Icelandic calendar. But since the beginning of the week, a low-pressure front has brought back the Arctic winter in full force – in June.

Yesterday, Art and Alina travelled to Akureyri to witness an unusual summer storm that unexpectedly hit the North and East of Iceland, blanketing the landscapes with snow and ice just as they were eagerly awaiting summer.
