Everything you need to know before you go on your adventure
It is important that the trip suits you and everyone in the group. Take care of yourself and each other. Don’t leave anyone behind to meet up with you later.
The biggest concern when outdoors in Iceland is the weather. The combination of cold temperature, strong wind and rain can be fatal if you don’t have the proper clothing and equipment. The weather changes fast in Iceland and you should be prepared for any weather. It can be sunny, rainy and windy all in one day.
Respect the weather! If there is bad weather forecasted, think carefully about whether your trip will be safe or enjoyable and consider changing or cancelling your plans. Pay careful attention to weather forecasts or warnings in the area you’re planning on visiting. Take notice to what hut wardens say, rangers, ICE-SAR, police, etc. And remember: If the locals say it‘s going to be bad – it is going to be bad!
