Weather & Climate

Learn more about Iceland's weather & climate, find out what is the temperature in Iceland and what you should wear in Iceland in this informative feature!

What’s the weather like in Iceland?

Iceland weather can be unpredictable so it worth being prepared for every scenario. Warmed by the Gulf Stream, winter temperatures are surprisingly similar to those of Vienna or Milan, while in summer they are usually in the range of 10-16°C.  You can expect a mixture of sunny and cloudy conditions as well as rain and wind, sometimes in a single day. In winter, snow comes and goes, and with the days being much shorter, it is more often dark than light.

What is the temperature in Iceland?

Many people think that Iceland is constantly freezing cold but that is not the case. The average temperature in Reykjavík is around 1-2°C (33-35°F) in wintertime and around 12°C (54°F) in summer. The temperature in Reykjavík can drop down to -10°C (14°F) in winter, or go up to +10°C (50°F), and during summertime it can drop down to around 7°C (44°C) and go up to 25°C (77°F).

What should I wear in Iceland?

What you pack for Iceland can be crucial as the weather is highly unpredictable. We recommend being prepared for cold, windy and even stormy conditions no matter what time of year you visit. Pack to accommodate up to three layers of clothing, particularly if you are planning on spending nights searching for the northern lights.

We also recommend windproof and waterproof outer layers and comfortable and waterproof walking boots for during the day and smarter clothes for enjoying the evenings. If you are planning on visiting places like the Blue Lagoon or Secret Lagoon, don’t forget to take a swimming costume and flip flops.
