Hi all,

I am aiming to arrive in Keflavik on 7th/8th September for a week and to begin a rather long bike ride going through the Highlands, North to Geysir, Thingvellir etc then back to airport through Reykjavik.

However, I am looking to try and get a lift from Keflavik to Hella/Skogafoss/Vik to start with purely as I am on a tight schedule.

If anyone is heading that way and can fit a 29 year old guy who speaks no Icelandic in, let me know. I'm willing to throw some money your way for fuel.

I will be in the Westfjords from August 28th to 31st, arriving late on Friday leaving Monday evening. Would love to go hiking and kayaking. Have found plenty of kayaking tours, but none of the major operator offer hikes to Hornstrandir Nature Reserve on our dates.

Anybody know of a smaller tour operator that might have trips to Hornstrandir on that late in the season? I was advised to contact Gulli at Westfjordian Guides, but can't seem to find his contact information.

Short of that, how about…

For anyone travelling to Iceland... we are going tomorrow. We originally booked our car with Sixt and after reading so many bad reviews we cancelled it and have now booked with Hasso who are incredibly reasonable. If they are not good you will hear about it in 10 days time on this forum! Can anyone advise whether you can camp anywhere in Iceland or does it have to be in campgrounds? We have just purchased loads of camping gear in Sweden which we have used in the last week of travelling around…

Will be in Iceland for 10 days starting August 10 with wife and 4 year old. Just trying to finalize our itinerary… have flight and car booked :)

If we want to spend our time day hiking with child (up to 5 hours and have a carrier) we are trying to decide how much time (if any) we should spend in the Westfjords if we also want to visit Snaefellsjokull, Skaftafell/Jokusarlon and 2 days in Reykjavik (Culture Night). Would involve a big drive at one point to get from west to south with a 4 year…

I've been backpacking around Iceland since july 18 with a friend. We sleep in a tent mostly, sometimes in a hostel. We have basically taken the ring road and interesting places close to it, we have tried to ask locals about places that not many tourists go to. We tried hitch-hiking, that didn't work very well. Then we started using the website samferda.is where you can hitch a ride with locals for only your share of fuel. We have usually been able to find a ride to where we are going. Fast food…

I've been to Iceland several times and have never found a good way to start off a conversation with an Icelander by gaining permission to conduct the conversation in English. Something like 99% of Icelandic people under the age of 60 speak perfect English yet it is their second language and, at least as I consider it, it would not be polite for me, the foreigner, to simply charge ahead speaking in English. I know how to ask "Do you speak English?" in Icelandic. That's not what I want to say…

Hello there,
I will be traveling to Iceland 5-12 August. I have no plans so far. What I know is that will spend arrival evening + 1 day in Reykjavik. Then I want to travel around. Roughly speaking, I want to visit north and south parts of the country. Following the ring road (road #1) might be also a good idea, but not sure if feasible in 5 days (with stops and visits to different attractions on the way). I prefer to see less but not to be in a rush. Any advice?
Also, would anybody, traveling on…

Hi. I have 14 nights in Iceland in the last 2 weeks of August, a solo trip but I enjoy meeting locals and other travelers. I've traveled a lot, but this is my first time in Iceland, so I'm planning to rent a car and use the Ring Road as a framework. I'm 70, very active but not a super-athlete. My main interest is short hikes (a few hours and perhaps a good day hike or two), experiencing wild natural beauty, nature study, and (secondarily for this trip) culture. I've booked comfortable mid-range…
