Contrary to popular belief the weather in Iceland is quite mild. During the early spring, the average daily temperature hovers between 0ºC to -10ºC, depending on where you are. As spring becomes summer, average temperatures rise to about 10ºC to 15ºC. However, Iceland is generally very windy. The island receives about 800mm of precipitation each year, with most of it coming during the autumn and winter.

More Info on Iceland

Iceland is a sparsely populated Nordic island country. The island has many active volcanoes and is on a geological hotspot, meaning there are plenty of natural springs as well. The island is warmed by waters flowing up from the Gulf of Mexico, so it is not as cold as you would expect. Oftentimes during the winter, Reykjavík is warmer than Chicago or Berlin. However, the country is still pretty cold and has 13 different glaciers. Since it is at such a high latitude, the country experiences prolonged periods of darkness during the winter, known as polar winter. The opposite is true during the summer, when it is almost constantly light. Though it is highly integrated with the EU, Euros are not commonly accepted here.

My trip to the Icelandic region of Hörnstrandir was simply amazing. On a four day trip trough its natural reserve, we have not only walked through beautiful Fjords and stood upon massive cliffs, we have also seen Northern Humpback wales, sealyons, Puffins, and many foxes! The stunning scenery, great weather and chill guide made for a perfect trip!
