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.

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.
How does the rate you pay for Icelandic Króna compare over time?
Our Historical Exchange Rate tool shows you at a glance how many Icelandic Króna you get for your pound over the last year. So you might use that information to help you choose a good time to buy.
