Record amount of snow in Reykjavik in february 2017 - photos and video

February 26 2017 - Most snow in #Reykjavik, 51 centimeters of snow dumped overnight. That would be about 2 feet, and as you can see it started with a little bit of snow, and then overnight - 2 feet all over the place. But we have good cars and we can drive through the snow, and some of the best companies driving with tourists in new and good cars are also cheap. Find cheap car rentals here.
