"Weather" Iceland Warnings Or Dangers Tip by Sharrie

Iceland Warnings and Dangers: 131 reviews and 166 photos


Again, we were very lucky. But beware of the weather in Iceland. We were told that it could change within 5 minutes from sunny to thunderstorm as well as from hot to icy cold! So, be well prepared in terms of rain gears & do bring raincoats. This country is sooooooooooo windy that umbrellas won't provide much help at all.

When driving around the country, bring a good map. The highways & roads are very well maintained but isolated. So, do not be too adventurous & ended up in no man's land.

For up-to-date info about road conditions, weather & traffic, please check with Iceland Public Road Administration (www.vegag.is)
