Get a bus from the city and get off at the Hilton or Reykjavik lights Hotel. Very safe place to stroll and breathe in the fresh Icelandic air. Go for a swim in the outdoor public swimming pool, the water is lovely and warm.

The bus from downtown takes you right there.The pool is free for seniors. The botanic gardens is a short walk away. Very nice, even at the end of September!
