When this picture was taken from Hallgrímskirkja Church Tower over the centre of Reykjavík at noon today, there was light rain and a temperature of 11 ° C / 52 ° F. At the same time, the temperatures in Akureyri and Egilsstaðir was 22 ° C / 72 ° F degrees and sunny. The weather forecast for the next five days is similar, cloudy in the west and south, while people in the north and east of the country will enjoy warmth well into next week. So, you just have to hurry east to Egilsstaðir, but the southern route from Reykjavík is 3 km / 2 m shorter than the northern route, which is 636 km / 395 m long.
