    • 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

    • Dinner in Grindavik

      by pg12359 Online Now Oct 1, 2008 at 9:58 AM

      My wife and I are staying at the Blue Lagoon Clinic for a night. Can anyone recommend a restaurant in the Grindavik area other than the one at the Blue Lagoon? Doesn't have to be too fancy/expensive.

      Blue Lagoon

      by charleychopslemonfac Online Now May 4, 2008 at 8:10 AM


      Being a typically very body concious brit, I was wondering if someone could give me a little more information regarding the changing and showering facilities at the blue lagoon. When we say 'communal showers' is there any kind of seperation at all (like walls or curtains) or is it one huge square room with no chance of hiding? I'm thinking that at least if it's built in a style where you can get a little privacy I could go in winter while it won't be as touristy so it'll be fairly empty.

      I'd like to go, or to any pool really while i'm there but I'm guessing they're all the same, but I can't afford the £67 for a private shower room, and as someone who hasn't even been brave enough to go out in a swimming costume for several years, I think completely open showers will be too big a jump for me.
