    Iceland in September-October (taken from OAT brochure)

    Fall in Iceland provides a preview of the long winter months to come, with rain, wind, and temperatures occasionally dropping toward 30 degrees Fahrenheit—but overall it remains mild and closer to 50 degrees. The Ring Road, which circumnavigates the country, remains open and allows visitors to see the entire island before winter weather closes in. Autumn foliage splashes the hillsides with color, brightening an already-beautiful landscape. The nights grow longer, with opportunities to spot the northern lights when the weather is clear. And across the country, summer crowds have departed, leaving natural landmarks and cultural attractions more peaceful. Locals often go berry-picking in the countryside, and then turn their wild berries into jams, cakes, juices, and wines.
