Trip Report for Iceland

“Once I got north of the Baldur Ferry it was more like Scotland. My hire car was excellent and the weather was kind – a cool wind but sunshine.  In the Westfjords, the Fisherman Hotel at Suoureyri is lovely as is the Breidavik.”

Fiona’s travel tips

WHAT 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
