I just returned from Iceland on a 9 day camping trip with my boyfriend. We saw amazing things and did some incredible tours. Icelandic mountain tours that take you on the glacial hike are must and Odin tours horseback riding are essential. Maria was our guide and host and welcomed us Into her home as old friends and not tourists. She was friendly, knowledgeable, and kind. We had an amazing ride and made a new friend. It was great to support a real person on a real farm doing real work…
Hi Everyone !
I'm planning to travel to Iceland for the first time this winter, end of December, beginning of January.
And as I want to make it even greater I'm planning on doing it alone.
I feel super excited but a bit lost in the same time. So many questions.
My plan is to book about 10 to 14 days in the country, starting of course by discovering Reykjavik (probably gonna spend New Year's Eve over there), and then go for few days on the roads. Probably not a good idea to rent a car alone…
I leave for Iceland next week and am still struggling with the Straeto website so any help would be greatly appreciated.
1) Is it better to get the bus next Sunday from Reykjavik to Skogafoss / Vik or do I get it at the end of my trip…Vik to Reykjavik?
2) On Sundays, is it the 52 bus from Reykjavik to Vik or the 51?
3) Can anyone give me definite times the bus goes from Reykkjavik and what time it gets to Vik? + What times it leaves Vik and arrives in Reykjavik (on Sundays).
Hi--I'm traveling to Iceland at the beginning of September and was planning on doing a day-to-day road trip around the western part of the country. I was wondering if anyone might have any input as to whether or not it would be reasonable to try and book a hotel/accommodations day-to-day. Rather than be constrained by having to be at a certain hotel every night, I was hoping to provide a little more flexibility so I can adjust my schedule depending on which areas I want to spend more or less…
I will be in Iceland for a couple weeks in early September and am looking to do the day hike from Skogar to Thorsmork. I have rented a car and plan to drive to Skogar, but my question is how easy will it be to return to my vehicle at Skogar?
It looks like there is a bus I could catch to Selfjalandsfoss once per day (http://www.volcanohuts.com/files/volcano_huts_thorsmork_bus.pdf)
, but from there, how could I get to Skogar? The bus route 51 does not stop at Selfjalandsfoss per the…
I've always wanted to see Iceland and have the opportunity to spend a long weekend in Reykjavik in late October. I know I won't get to see a lot in the few days im there but im wondering would there be much in terms of tours etc. I've noted a number stop in September. I've also been told Reykjavik itself csn be kindof boring! So wondering would it be a worthwhile few days in late October? ?
Another one to add to your list. Do not rent through HASSO car rental! I just returned 3 weeks ago from a trip to Iceland. I do admit that some of the damage was mine. I washed the car!!! When I did, I must have scratched the dirt into the door. This is the only thing I could think of because I do not know if it was there before or not. Mind you, I never noticed this until I took the car back and they pointed it out. They took 2000 Euros off my card. They said they would get it fixed and…
I posted this thread in Greenland Forum but think of posting it in Iceland forum too mainly to understand if this make any sense to travel to Iceland in March for just a week to catch some good landscape / winter scenery / something special that Iceland can provide in March. I will be coming here after spending a week in Greenland, so want to know if I can see something different than what I see in Greenland during that time. Natural vistas / scenery are more attractive to me than history /…
