To get the best of the weather May to September is an ideal time to explore the rugged countryside of northwest Iceland. Roads are relatively traffic free and extremely scenic. Rugged mountains, clear streams and lots of waterfalls. Iceland is a young country but there are many historic buildings to view. Geothermal activity and signs of past volcanic activity are easily found.
Driving on mile upon mile of coastal or mountain roads is a pleasure. There are lots of walking/hiking trails to explore and the scenery is stunning. We enjoyed 5 days in early October and experienced changeable weather.
