The International Gay and Lesbian Aquatic Championship is coming to Reykjavik in Iceland.

Starting with the opening party on 30 May, the championship lasts four days. The 2012 event will include swimming, water polo, relay events, synchronised swimming and diving.

A midnight open water swimming challenge will take place on 1 June in the Nauthólsvík neighbourhood of Reykjavik for those brave enough to take to take on the north Atlantic at night.

To help you get a more complete experience of the country, official travel partner Pink Iceland will be offering daily tours of the island which include sightseeing, trips to spas and whale watching.

Budget airline Iceland Express is offering cheap flights to Keflavik in Iceland from all over Europe.
