Self-transfer to Ísafjörður via the domestic flight from Reykjavik or arrive at your leisure to be in time for the lunch concert in Ísafjörður at 12:15pm. Grab a quick bite on your own and check-in to your hotel before the music festival director gives you a personal walking tour of his hometown. Dinner is served at Iceland’s best fish restaurant served fresh from the sea. The night concludes with the first evening concert of the festival, but not if the sky is clear! Board a bus and chase the midnight sun at one of the best viewpoints of the Westfjords. This special add-on is spontaneous and will depend on the weather forecast for the week.

The day of the solstice, the pure 24-hour midnight sun will propel you through this fun-filled day. Start the day with breakfast at your respective hotel.
