Poor old Johan Stone from the Netherlands. All happy and shit about visiting Iceland in February only to get seriously mad and pissed about getting stuck in snowstorms and getting nowhere fast on local roads.
Too bad old Johan did not read Total Iceland. The only Iceland guide to tell you how a deep winter trip to Iceland is either fabulous or downright horror depending on the weather. Actually, more often than not, the weather will turn nasty and folks driving along loving the view gets stuck in snow or worse, drives straight off the road due to the ice covering most roads in this country in February.
That means getting help from rescue squads and leaving the rental car in deep snow on some faraway moor. You will be very cold and very wet and since the rescue squad needs to pick up fourteen other tourists stuck in the middle of nowhere the rescue takes all night. Nothing worse than being cold, shivering, wet and sleepy but unable to sleep.
Incidentally, the car rental agency will charge your life savings for fetching the car from the moor in question the day after and that lovely little winter break in Iceland is something you will regret for the rest of your life.
Hey, but at least you´re alive!
Welcome to Iceland
