Winters in Iceland are mild but windy. So pack enough warm clothes and a hat, waterproof gear is always recommended.
There can be violent and dangerous wind and snow storms in the winter months which reach it’s peak at December and January with sometimes closed roads and difficult driving conditions.
If the roads are closed to our Lodges we have to cancel the booking as it’s not allowed for anyone to drive (and therefore also not possible for us to go and clean the Lodge) and you also shouldn’t go outside during a violent storm. It is possible that we need to cancel your booking in this case and of course you get the full refund.
If you are at the Lodge during a storm, please don’t use the hot pool as it can be very dangerous and secure the pool cover firmly. Do not leave anything outside the terrace during a storm, wind gusts can reach up to 60m/s and blow everything away. We have a storm information printed out in each cabin.
Take weather warnings always serious!
