The Weather in Þríhnúkar
As your volcano adventure is coming up in a few days you’re probably already wondering what to expect when hiking through a lava field in Iceland!
A good starting point is to take a look at the weather forecast to get an idea of what to expect.
Before we get into the details we want to point out some practical things to keep in mind.
Thrihnukagigur Volcano is located 600 metres above sea level. Weather and conditions there can be very different from what it’s like in Reykjavik.
Weather forecasts are just predictions/indications and can change without notice. It’s, therefore, recommended to review the forecast on the day before your tour.
