The first thing you should know about traveling in Iceland is that weather conditions can change dramatically in just a few hours. It’s possible you’ll get sunshine and a snow blizzard in the same day! Thankfully, the weather forecast can predict such weather changes in relative accuracy so it’s always advisable to check out the weather forecast for the route that you’re traveling, even though conditions are fine when you’re departing, at all seasons.

You’ll find detailed weather forecast and warnings at the Icelandic Met Office: en.vedur.is. Do like the locals and always check the Met office and the road conditions at road.is before departing.
