Blue Lagoon

My husband and I are going to Iceland for 4 days in the summer. We have been told to visit the Blue Lagoon, however we've also read mixed reviews about this place. Is it really worth the hype or should be go elsewhere? We'll be based in central Reykjavik and will not be hiring a car while out there. Any suggestions are welcome. Thanks.

Snorkeling Silfra

Just curious if anyone has taken any tours to Silfra. I was looking at these two:

https://www.re.is/day-tours/gullfoss-geysir-snorkeling $280
vs
http://www.dive.is/diving-snorkeling-tours/snorkeling-day-tours/snorkeling-silfra-the-golden-circle-combo/ $370

I thought it would be nice to include the golden circle sights in the tour also..

I was wondering what the price difference is about? Seems like they both do the same thing.

Cost of Motorhome Travel vs. Guesthouse

There are 3 of us planning to visit in August for 10+ days and we are looking at options for travel and overnight. At first it appeared that renting a motorhome might be less expensive than staying in guest/farm houses or self catering. The motorhome provides more flexibility in where to stay and for meal preparation, but seeing that guesthouses offer kitchens, they might be comparable in cost when fuel is added to the equation. Does anyone have experience in the two options?

As part of a trip to Ireland, scotland, iceland and Norwa.

Itinerary help please!

Hi,

We have 4 days in June to celebrate our 10yr anniversary. This is our current plan...

Wed: Arrive 6:15am from nyc---

thinking about booking something for this afternoon...maybe Blue Lagoon and then a dinner cruise in the evening? Is the dinner cruise worth it? Who should we go with to visit the Blue Lagoon?

Thurs: Visit Jokulsarlon (1 day tour...I know very long) (tour company…

GPS needed?

I just searched and found only one comment about this. I'm guessing it isn't necessary but am hoping to confirm. We are traveling the Ring Road, is there any point in spending the extra $ or GPS in the rental car?

Landmannalaugar or Thorsmork in late March?

Hey all,

Planning a day-long landscape photography trip out of Reykjavik in late March. We'll already hit several "landmark" destinations on the previous three days' tour; for our last, free day we're considering a "super-jeep" tour of Landmannalaugar or perhaps Thorsmork. I wonder what conditions on the ground might be like that time of year. Will all the colours still be buried under snow? If so, perhaps the rock formations of Thorsmork would make a more photogenic stop than the hues of Landm

My questions:
