What is the weather like in Reykjavik?

It's often thought that Reykjavik is a very cold city in the winter, but the truth is that although certainly cold, temperatures usually hover around 0°C (32°F). More often than not you will see rain instead of snow, although it can snow anytime from October right up until May. During early Spring the temperature can rise to 6°C (43°F). In the summer the temperature will reach a high of 14°C (57°F). But, coupled with this is the fact that you have endless hours of daylight, making your days stretch out that little bit longer.

What budget to plan when staying in Reykjavik?

When in Reykjavik you will be using Icelandic Krona (kr). Although Reykjavik can be expensive, you can shop around for many bargains. The 101 Reykjavik Street Foods sells fast food and seafood at incredibly low prices, and Fish & Co is the place to go for the best fries and fresh cod in the city. Cafes are also fairly cheap, with an average filter coffee setting you back only 350 Krona.

If you plan to visit many of the city's museums, then it's well worth getting a City Card as this will give you free entry to any of the city's pools, museums, the ferry across to Viðey, plus discounts to many of the restaurants and shops in the city.
