Encounters – Winter Driving in Iceland

Winter driving is new to me. I’ve never done it – no not yet – and this post isn’t about my first time driving. It’s a short clip of my driver, getting us through the mountains of Iceland to head off for another destination. It was at night and completely dark outside the windows, but I was sitting right at the front of the bus. It was then that I realize there was a strong wind and some form of a snow storm happening.

The conditions on the road can be very bad at times. Snow blanketing your field of visions, or strong wind howling and blowing up the snow from the ground, the darkness that falls in sooner than the rest of the world in winter – all of which adds up the difficulty driving there. That said, it will still be one hell of an experience to do it at least once.

Note: It was captured while I was in the bus, so the vision isn’t quite as clear. But if you look closely, you would see how strong the wind is, and if there isn’t opposing cars coming, the visibility is quite horrible.
