Assuming I have a superjeep how long does it take (approximately) to get from Reykjavik to Vik during the month of December, and when's the best time to start if I want light the entire drive.

1 Answer 1


I have not done this journey in a superjeep, only in normal transportation in summer months. But I can tell you that it is usually around a 2.5 hour journey. Its a fairly pleasant drive in my experience.

During winter, Iceland only has around 4 hours of daylight per day. At worst, on the Winter Solstice (22nd December in 2015) the sun will rise at 11:23 and set 15:30 in Reykjavik.

  • That was useful, so in that case I should start at around 11:30 from Reykjavik, which doesn't seem to have much traffic, right?

  • Uhm I don't think daylight is the only concern during December. I'll give you that even during my years in Iceland the amount of snow during winter has varied greatly, but never underestimate a blizzard. At least with a superjeep the car won't be as likely blown off the road, though ;) May 18, 2015 at 8:11
