Estimating how long I can wait to book a specific airfare I found, before that fare increases...

After a lot of searching I found a perfectly timed and cheap roundtrip flight for a trip I'll do next summer. I've gone through the booking steps on the airline's site on a few different days now, and it keeps coming out the same fare, but I assume at some point the fare will increase. I'm not positive about my trip's dates yet, so I can't book until I find out some stuff which may depend on slow communication from other people.
So this question is about whether there's any way to guess how long I have to decide before the fare increases, or whether that is so unpredictable that I really can't even guess.
(The fare is JFK-ARN-JFK on IcelandAir, leaving in May 08 and returning in July 08. I want to use them not because they're absolute cheapest but because they offer the free stopover in KEF on this itinerary.)
