We will be going to Iceland the first weeks of March 2017. Will there still be a lot of snow here during that time of year? Are the road pretty safe to drive or really icy normally in March?
Locals recommend tourists not driving in winter/ dark months. I'm not sure regarding what the weather conditions will be in march. We visited in July.
We travelled right round Iceland at the end of May and even then some roads just off the A1 were blocked with snow. Hengisfoss Fall also had a huge ice sheet at the bottom of the fall, although the fall itself was flowing. In March I believe the whole fall will be frozen, but that can, I imagine, make it spectacular.
The hike up from the carpark took an hour and was steep and reasonably testing, so in March when it will be much colder and snowier you will need very sound walking boots and plenty of layers and a degree of fitness!
Hey Helman, since we were there in August and the weather was pretty fair, unfortunately I cannot give an appropriate answer to your question. But even in August, the driving conditions were quite hazardous in some places because there are a lot of gravel roads; even on highway nbr 1, numerous sections are just gravel.
