Hi Can you tell me if there is dress code for the restaurant meal that we are going to.
Also what will be the best footwear to take?
How many people are going?

Thanks

Karin

Hi Karin,

There is no dress code, just make sure you wear something that you will be comfortable in (and of course something to keep you warm in the cool climes of Iceland).

Being as your visiting in the end of March, there is likely to be patches of snow and ice around. I would recommend taking a pair of walking shoes or something similar that have some grip. Again, comfort is the main thing here as you will be doing quite a lot of walking.

There are 31 travellers booked on this tour, with ages ranging from the mid-20's to the early-70's.

I hope this is helpful.

Kindest regards,
Monty

Thank you.

Just one other question, do we need to take our own towels if we go into the Blue Lagoon or will one be provided?

Hi Karin
I did this trip this time last year - you will have a fabulous time.

No one in Iceland dresses up, it's all really casual - dressing for warmth and comfort is the priority. If you are taken to the same restaurants that we went to (and I hope you are because the food is out of this world), one is quite rustic and the lightening very low, whereas the other is very bright and airy and feels like an elegant Georgian dining room, but again, everyone is in jeans and sweaters.

As Monty says, it can be very icy and slippy underfoot, so I'd suggest comfy walking boots with a pair of detachable grippers (Yaktrax or similar) for when you as out of the town. The Golden Circle (unmissable) will probably still be very snowy and icy. It is also incredibly windy, so I'd recommend hat and scarf or a balaclava and some thick gloves. You'll be on and off the coach quite a bit, so wearing layers is the way to go.

Have a super time - happy to help if you have any other questions
All the best
Mandy

Hi Karin,

You will be provided with a towel when you arrive at the Blue Lagoon.
