Iceland is renowned for its wild and unpredictable weather. Fair weather can change into a rain storm in minutes. Keep this in mind at all times, particularly when travelling in the highlands. For every 100m in altitude gained, you can expect the mean temperature to drop by 0.6°C and precipitation to increase. The temperature can drop below the freezing point even during summer & wind force can multiply around mountain summits which makes it even colder.
When planning your trip we urge everyone to monitor the weather forecast regularly in the days before the planned departure and then on daily basis (morning & night) during your stay. If you have some flexibility in your travel plans a good advice would be to monitor the forecast and aim for areas offering the best weather & visibility conditions. The forecast is relatively reliable 36 hours ahead of time. If you wish to view current status please press following link: IcelandWeatherForecast
