Easter is a special time here in Iceland and always more and more travellers decide to spend their Easter vacation in Iceland. Traditional Easter holidays in Iceland are from Holy Thursday until Easter Monday (5 April to 9 April 2012). Prepare yourself for shops and restaurants being closed some of these days but don't worry there is still plenty to do around town. Visit Reykjavķk has taken to gether a good list of opening hours for Easter so we recommend you taking a good look at that their list.
We offer daily whale watching tours at 9:00 and 13:00 all Easter long. To make it a bit more special we introduce to you Icelandic Easter traditions such as the Easter egg proverbs. Elding runs the Višey ferry according to schedule except on Easter Sunday. The ferry sails from Skarfabakki on Saturday 7 April when we we introduce a fun Easter egg hunt on the island, stay tuned for more information.
Happy Easter everyone!
