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.

Now for some practical links

  • The Norwegian weather forecast:

  • The Icelandic weather forecast:

On the Norwegian weather forecast page,, you can get a quick overview with pictures.
The page shows the temperature, wind, and precipitation in an easy to understand manner.

For more details, it’s nice to use the Icelandic forecast for a larger map with more details about the forecast for the larger area. This can often give a better idea of what is to be expected if the forecast changes. The red X on the picture below shows the approximate location of where you’ll be starting the hike.
