Icelanders may be a bunch of blasphemous heathens, but they take their five-day Easter holiday very seriously. From Skírdagur (Holy Thursday) to Annar í páskum (Easter Monday) expect shorter opening hours than during a snowstorm in Britain.
Everything from tourist attractions, to pools, to museums, to grocery stores have reduced opening hours if they are open at all. A comprehensive list of opening hours around town was considerately compiled by the Tourist Information Centre. Check them out at Aðalstræti 2 and online at Visit Reykjavík.
Missing from this list is possibly the best defence against boredom during the long-weekend: Vínbúðin is closed from Wednesday night until Tuesday, April 7, all but two stores across the country will open for a couple hours on Saturday.
