Why not spend a Saturday like a typical Icelander and start the day by going to one of Reykjavík´s hot swimming pools. Whatever the weather, you’ll find local people swimming and bathing in the hot tubs. After working up an appetite, it’s off to to a bakery for a nice cup of coffee and an Icelandic pastry called “kleina” or “pönnukökur” for yourself and some bread for the ducks. After that, why not pop down-town to take in the views of Reykjavík lake? To the north you will find Reykjavík City hall alongside “Kolaportið”, Reykjavík´s fleamarket, with its international atmosphere, it’s definitely worth a visit.
Try Icelandic dry fish or even some traditional rotten fish if you are brave enough! If eating lots of fish is not your thing, don’t worry!! There are plenty of Icelandic ice cream parlours to suit every taste. Yum!
