Venus rise and set in Reykjavik

Try after sunset.

Jupiter rise and set in Reykjavik

Hard to see.

Saturn rise and set in Reykjavik

After sunset and most of the night.

Saturn is visible during most of the night, but it is best viewed in the late evening hours after sunset. It is very close to the horizon, making it fainter because the light has to cover a larger distance when traveling through the Earth's atmosphere. Make sure to get an unobstructed view with as little light pollution as possible.
