"We were there in January between 0 & -4 with feels like temperatures much lower. We were lucky to see Iceland covered in snow, so picturesque!!"
"Mostly in the minus figures temperature wise lowest was -14, the day that was above 0 it rained very heavily"
"Very cold and Sadly no snow, it rained ☹️. There was plenty of snow on the ground when we arrived but the rain washed most of it away."
"Uncharacteristically warm for the time of year."
"Cold and dark, but that’s what you expect in January!"
"Snowing as expected"
"Cold as one would expect, we missed the rain until the day we were returning home. A blizzard thrown in and the odd snow shower. A lovely blue sky to go with the cold temperature."
"Cold but sunny , snowy at times ."
"We had strong winds , snow and cloud so did not see the northern lights, but that’s luck of the draw."
"Snowing! Which made everything look so beautiful. Some days the temperature did drop to as low as -15 but providing you take lots of warm layers it isn’t too much of a problem."
"snowing, sunny, cold - everything you would expect"
"Windy, rainy, -9"
"cold but if you prepare and buy the right gear you'll br fine as we were"

"It was cold but not too cold. Was very snowey but it was not the same as the snow at home which I loved"
"Snow -11."


"The weather was cold and changeable but manageable with a warm coat and hats , gloves ect."
"It was cold, we were lucky & had lovely sunshine, and snow. The wind was biting!"
"Not nearly as cold as I was expecting. During the day above 2 degrees every day. Cold wind at night but not dreadful."
"Cold mostly clear wind added bite to temperature"
"Cold as you would expect but we were lucky to have clear blue skies on two of the four days and little wind."
"Good for February"

"February 2023. Mildly cold, the weather changes rapidly sometimes several times is one day."
"cold! nobody mentioned the arctic gale force winds which made the temperature seem about 20 degres colder than it actually was! We had 2 trips cancelled due to the weather - nobody on our week saw the Northern lights and it was unlikely that anyone would the following week either - its not really made clear that seeing the Northern lights is a 50/50 situation - they very much promote it as if its a definite or you would be extremely unlucky not to see them. I think Iceland should be more honest - but I don't think that will happen! Despte this we stil enjoyed the trip and would go back - but in the Summer!"

"Very cold"
"Cold with a bit of snow - perfect!"
