The summer temperature in Reykjavik ranges from five degrees Celsius at night to as high as 25 degrees during the day. The average January temperature is -0.5 degrees. The south is the wettest part of the country, but snow is rare. Coastal areas tend to experience winter gales and are generally windy.

Getting around Iceland

Domestic Iceland flights are available from Reykjavik to various destinations from Air Iceland and Eagle Air. Flying – especially in the winter – is the easiest, quickest and often the cheapest way to get around.

Iceland Air also connects with bus services, to provide travel to destinations not served by flights.

Other than flying, the only reliable way of getting around is by bus. There is no train service in the country and, though car hire is available, this is not a recommended means of transport, due to ice and poor roads. The bus network is extensive. Advance purchases are not necessary and tickets can be bought from the driver.
