Snæfellsjökull National Park: It has snowed on the Snæfellsjökull glacier and the fresh snow hides the old cravassesso going there without a guide is highly not recommendet.  Road 570 closed/impassableImportant to show caution at/around sea cliffs.  
Westfjords: In general winter conditions can be expected on roads higher than 100-200 m above sea levelThe mountain pass over Dynjandisheiði (and other gravel roads) are in very bad condition, big potholes and when it rains/snows it gets muddy. Note that at bridges are sharp edges and deep holes, show caution because it’s easy to damage cars.    
Látrabjarg and Rauðisandur: The road to Látrabjarg has no winter service so it can become impassable very quicklyWorth mentioning that in heavy rain Látrabjarg becomes very slippery and trails become muddy. The road to Rauðisandur is very steepthreads the mountain with out protective rails which can be challenging for inexperienced drivers.

There are no rocks in the ocean that break the waves and only a few meters of shore there‘s an underwater cliff so the pulling factor of these already powerful waves becomes even greater. On top of this the sand is very fine ash which makes it extra difficult to get away from these waves. Rocks have also been falling by the cave 
Same applies to Djúpalónssandur in Snæfellsnes Peninsula and Kirkjufjara beach but it‘CLOSED for this reason.

Seljalandsfoss: The trail behind the waterfall is wet/icy/slippery and one must be careful when going back up the rocks on the west side.Some days the trail behind the waterfall is closed becuase it’s too dangerous. Microspikes are recommended and it’s necessary to wear good walking shoes. 
Fjaðrárgljúfur: Important to stay on the trails and not go over ropes that indicate closures as nature is very vulnerable. Paths are muddy and sometimes icy, very slippery. Important to wear good shoes. Hiking boots and microspikes are recommended.

Hengifoss: Paths can be slippery in the mornings because of night frost.  

Reynisfjara: The beach can always be dangerous due to the unpredictability of the waves. It‘s not every wave – it‘s every 7th or 10th or 12th wave that goes a lot further up the beach than the rest making it difficult to assess danger upon arrival. There are no rocks in the ocean that break the waves and only a few meters of shore there‘s an underwater cliff so the pulling factor of these already powerful waves becomes even greater. On top of this the sand is very fine ash which makes it extra difficult to get away from these waves. Rocks have also been falling by the cave.
Same applies to 
Djúpalónssandur in Snæfellsnes Peninsula and Kirkjufjara beach but it‘s CLOSED for this reason.   

Svínafellsjökull: Civil Protection advises against travel on Svínafellsjökull due to landslide danger and guided tours on the glacier are discouraged. Travelers are advised to stop only for a short while at viewpoints by the glacier tongue. 

Dyrhólaey: The road to Háey is only for 4×4 vehicles.  

Seljalandsfoss: Nothing unusual about the conditions – the trail behind the waterfall is wet and one must be careful when going back up the rocks on the west side.   

Fjaðrárgljúfur: Important to stay on the trails and not go over ropes that indicate closures as nature is very vulnerable.   

   


Conditions on hiking trails:   

Esja: Important not to underestimate the elevation gain. At this time of year the trails can be snowy and/or icy and even though the weather is nice at the bottom start, it can be extremely windy and cold in upper parts. It’s important to be dressed/equipped for that. 

Reykjadalur: Nothing remarkable about the conditions. Important though to follow trails as the area remains sensitive to traffic.   

Básar: Trails are in good condition but because of frost during the night they can be slippery in the morning and throughout the afternoon. 

Fimmvörðuháls:  It has become cold and wet/snowy on the trail. Autumn/winter is there and bad weather conditions a fact. The huts have closed. A challenging hike and conditions vary a lot on the weather and at this time of year only go there if the weather is very good! Fog on the top and even snow is common which limits the visibility. Snow for some kms at the top. Foot prints in the snow should never be 100% relied uppon. Important to keep in mind that access to water is very limited after the river, on the pass itself.  

Þórsmörk: Trails are in good condition  but because of frost during the night they can be slippery in the morning and throughout the afternoon. 

Landmannalaugar: All trails are covered with snow. 

Laugavegur: The huts between Landmannalaugar and Þórsmörk have closed so it’s not recommended to do the hike. Winter conditions on the way and as huts have closed there’s no shelter for bad weather. 

The hut in Langidalur has closed. Básar (Þórsmörk) is closed and the warden only comes to open for reserved groups and/or at weekends. Volcano Huts in Húsadalur is open all year round. The hut in Landmannalaugar will be open until end of October (closed November and December).

SE of Vatnajökull: Nothing remarkable about the conditions. 

Víknaslóðir: Huts are closed. 

Ásbyrgi: Walking paths are muddy and slippery. Smaller walking paths will be kept closed until conditions get better.   

Dettifoss: The area is very wet. Important to stay on marked trails. 

Jökulsárgljúfur: The hiking trail between Ásbyrgi and Dettifoss is closed because of winter conditions. 

Hljóðaklettar: The hiking trail between Ásbyrgi and Dettifoss is closed because of winter conditions.

Hornstrandir: The scheduled boats have stopped sailing there. Winter conditions and no hiking. 

Glymur: Log has been removed so there is no way but wade through the river. The current is quite strong and river very cold so wading through is not for everyone.
