On June 21, Iceland’s midnight sun returns once again with Summer Solstice, and Icelanders far and near will celebrate with traditional gatherings of friends and family, bonfires and music, and the best array of Icelandic food and drinks. On Summer Solstice in Reykjavik, Iceland, the sun sets just after midnight and rises again just before 3am.
Reyka Vodka, born of Iceland’s magical land of volcanoes and glaciers, vast fields of lava rock, towering waterfalls of spring water and some of the cleanest air in the world, will be featured at the following events in Austin to celebrate the Summer Solstice, alongside countless additional events throughout the country.
