Weather in Iceland

The weather in Iceland can be rather unpredictable, so make sure you check the weather forecast before you set off, especially for any long drives. Winter driving conditions can be challenging, so make sure to stay safe and check the road conditions before heading out.

It is also important to be aware of the speed limits, which are generally lower than in many other countries, and to be cautious when driving in rural areas where there may be animals, mostly sheep, on the road during summer.
