Seasons
Iceland in the path of the North Atlantic Current (aka Gulf Stream), which makes its climate more temperate than one would expect for its latitude just south of the Arctic Circle.
The weather in Iceland is notoriously variable and often very windy. On our highland tours you can expect any kind of weather and good preparation is a key to a successful journey. When the sun is shining you need to apply strong sun protection similar to the one you would use while skiing in the Alps for example.
Good layers of thermal underwear and ideally woolen sweaters in combination with a windproof jacket will keep you warm and snug even in colder temperatures. Good gloves and socks are important as well.  A warm rider is a happy rider!

Winter
The average January temperature is 31°F (-0.5°C). From mid-November until the end of January, in the darkness of winter, the country only experiences a few hours of daylight each day.

Summer
The summer temperatures in Reykjavík range from 41°F (5°C) at night to as high as 77°F (25°C) during the day.  During the summer months there is almost continuous daylight; early spring and late autumn feature long twilights. 
 
The Northern Lights are often visible in autumn and early winter.
