Today is Bóndadagur, the first day of Þorri, when Icelanders celebrate mid-winters feasts
Around the summer solstice (June 21st), the sun is visible for the full 24 hours in the Westfjords. According to the National University’s information page, Visindavefur.is, the sun is visible for about 21 hours in Reykjavík on that day.
During the winter solstice, on the other hand, the days are dramatically shorter, with only 4 hours of daylight in Reykjavík and a mere 2 hours and 45 minutes in the Westfjords.
