Rekyjavik In late Feb- inspirationHello!
Me and a friend are going to Rekyjavik for 3 days next week (mid Feb) . We already have golden circle, northern lights and blue lagoon tours booked- so just wondered if anyone had any advice on:
a)- Things to do in the actual city -( we only really have one day so top tips!) -including sights, museums, restaurants, bars in the evening,
b) What to wear?! Presumably warm and waterproof. FoIr the Golden Circle tour, are hardy walking boots advisable?

1Hi visited Reyjavik a few years ago. It is like a small town. Check out the walking tours free from the main square - run by locals no charge may not run in winter but good fun and entertaining. The youth hostel near the sea front just down from the square has nice coffee bar - also try sea food restaurant in the road just off the quay great whale kebabs or clam soup if you are too green for that. Church tower offers good view. I'm too old to tell you about the nightlife but by all accounts it's good. Singed sheeps head is the local specality dish - restaurant in road up to church on the left - I didn't try it! Restaurants are high class but expensive and supermarkets are poor by uk comparison. Try horse riding we had great fun doing that available in several places near the city - check guide books. The horse has a singular gait that no other horses have - these are not ponies but lovely small horses. They reach pace called a tolt which is like a slow gallop but incredibly smooth.
Whole place is bizarre and surreal landscapes - best have a 4X4 if going off main road.e did a home swap with a guy called Thor! People are very friendly. The other great fun thing we did was the rafting - cold but great fun. BTW I am 55 and went with my grown up kids they loved it too. Enjoy!
