You'll warm to the rates you get for your Króna

Whether you're going for the glaciers or the volcanoes, the hot springs or the Northern Lights, there are few places with more spectacular scenery than Iceland. Despite its name and lying just a few degrees south of the Arctic Circle, it has a surprisingly mild climate too. The warm waters of the Gulf Stream regulate its coastal weather and make Iceland's average summer temperatures around from 5°C at night to as high as 25°C throughout the day.

You'll warm to the exchange rate we offer you for your Icelandic Króna too. We offer our best rates online and if you order your Icelandic travel money now, it can be in your pocket the next working day.

Some notes about Icelandic Króna

  • Iceland's official currency is the Króna, the plural is Krónur and the abbreviation is kr. It was introduced in 1875, and like all Scandinavian Kroner, the name is a translation of crown.
  • Notes are printed in denominations of 500, 1000, 2000, 5000, 10,000 krónur.
  • One Króna is worth 100 øre but coins of less than one króna have not circulated for many years. Króna coins are minted in 1, 5, 10, 50, 100 krónur.
