Fiona’s travel tipsWHAT TO WEAR: Good walking and waterproof shoes are a must. In summer, light clothing is often all you need - but be prepared for both cold and wet weather at all times of year. You can swim year-round in countless geothermal pools and lagoons with a typical temperature of 25-28°C, so a bathing suit is a must, whenever you visit!
TOP TIP: Stay centrally in Reykjavik – it’s a wonderful city to wander around with some great restaurants.
BEST TIME TO GO: Summer for wonderful hiking
