    • Whale watching to do or not to do... November

      Reykjavík Aug 15, 2015 at 3:35 PM


      I will be in Reykjavik for 5 days in November. I have tours booked on first three days. I depart at 16.30pm on the Tuesday. I can't decide whether to do whale watching tour on the Monday and Blue Lagoon on my way to the airport on Tuesday or whether to skip the whale watching tour and do the Blue Lagoon on the Monday and then relax on the Tuesday. Has anyone done Whale watching in November and would you recommend it?

      Thank you.

    • Warning Íshestar riding center

      Iceland Aug 17, 2015 at 1:50 PM

      This company offers various types of short and long riding tours. Recently I've heard about one woman having her vacation in Iceland ruined from breaking her arm after falling of a horse when riding with this company and then I heard about another woman falling off her horse during a tour with this company. What's going on here? Is it bad luck? Are these isolated incidents? Is riding horses just that dangerous and difficult in general? Or is there something wrong with this company?

      I'm no expert when it comes to horses so I'll admit that I don't know how normal or abnormal all of this is but I certainly won't be advising anyone to use the services of Íshestar.

    • Northern Lights

      Iceland Aug 15, 2015 at 1:20 AM

      For as long as I can remember I've craved to see the northern lights. Thinking about flying out to Reyjakvik - hiring a car and doing our own thing.

      Any suggestions as to the optimum time to see the northern lights - what are the driving conditions liable to be like - do we need snow chains and how far would we have to drive to see the northern lights from Reyjavik. Did think of seeing them from Norway but Trondheim etc is so way out in the wilds don't think this is practical.. Also suggestions for sight seeing - we're not into hiking - caves OK provided there are not a lot of stairs

      Many thanx

      I was in Aukureyri in May and purchased a sweater at a shop that was to be mailed to me. The name is something like Anna Hanna in it. It is on the main street. Need to find the correct name and telephone number as I have never received the sweater. Any help you can give would be appreciated.

      I will be in Akureyri for 2 days and 2 nights. One Northern Lights tour is included in my Icelandair package. Should I prebook other tours or wait until we are there? I really hope to see the N Lights.

    • 7.00-16.00 from cruise ship.

      Akureyri Apr 27, 2011 at 12:54 PM

      As only got this short amount of time Im quite scared to book one of the icelandic tour opporators in case they do not get me back in time to catch the ship. Does anyone have any experiences of this, be it good or bad?. Basically the ships tours are very expensive but the ship will not leave without them. Thank you for any advice you can give me.

    • Akureyri nightlife

      Akureyri Jun 23, 2003 at 11:15 AM

      I will be traveling to Akureyri this summer for the first time. I will be there in late July, for a Wednesday and Thursday night. I was wondering if anyone could recommend bars/clubs that might have people on those midweek nights. I have been to Reykjavik before. Will young people in Akureyri speak English, like people in Reykjavik (we never had a problem with language there)? Thanks very much. David
