I am coming to Iceland this Summer and plan to camp all over the country for a week. I would like to get advice where to rent everything I need for my trip (tent, mattress, sleeping bag, cook set, stove, gas canister, ...
Also, I´d like to rent a device to have internet access as well as a GPS.
Any advice? Thanks in advance,
My friend and I are in Reykjavik tonight and our evening boat tour was just canceled. We are looking for some type of chill/mellow activities for tonight besides going out for dinner. We walked around the city for about 10 hours today and would like to do something that keeps us off our feet. We also have an early appointment tomorrow, so nothing too crazy or late-night. Thank you for any suggestions!
My wife and I are planning to visit Iceland for a 7-10 day holiday in mid-May, just wondering if there are things we will miss out on (attractions) because we are not going during the peak period? We have the option of both but would like to avoid the crowds. Thanks in advance.
Me and my friends are planning a trip to Iceland in time over New year 2015-2016. We are already starting to plan everything so we can be fully prepared for the time we go.
We will at that time be aged from 17-20 years old and will be looking for some a bit cheaper places to stay. Any recommendations of where to book a place to stay that is not like most luxurious and expensive? Would help us out a whole lot. We would go for about 10 days.
We are thinking of staying in Reykjavik and then taking the bus to places we want to go and see. We thought about renting a car but I think it might be a problem because in loads of those cases you have to be 21 to rent it.
Is it smarter to just stay in Reykjavik and drive around, or change places to stay? We haven't discussed that yet.
If you have any recommendations where to go and what to see most importantly in the winter over there, please let us know! (:
greetings from Slovenia.
We have a flight from KEF to NY on Oct 8 at 17:00 (5pm). We will leave Italy to get there and most all flights don't land in KEF until 15:30 (3:30pm). My question is how difficult to change planes at that airport? We will have carry-on luggage only, but is that cutting it too close to catch an international flight or should we get there a day earlier?
Most of what I've read says the Park is only open during summer. We were thinking of driving from Reykjavik to Snæfellsness during our visit next week, but was wondering what to see there if the park is closed. Any suggestions?
First let me thank all of the people who have written tips, reviews and forum comments on Iceland already. Your work is greatly appreciated. I'd like to particularly acknowledge Regina1965, whose many pages have been very valuable in helping me plan my upcoming trip. I've learned a great deal beyond the published travel guides.
I am a landscape photographer who will be journeying to Iceland early this summer. I will be spending 13 days there late May-early June, driving around the country to take pictures and enjoy the scenery. To get around the island, I've rented a 2WD campervan for the duration of the trip. Having done a lot of reading on Iceland already, I have a good idea of those places I absolutely need to visit (Jökulsárlón, Mývatn, Tröllaskagi, Snæfellsnes, many waterfalls, etc.). So I'm looking for advice on the following:
1. Outside of the famous, spectacular scenic highlights, and outside of coastal routes, are there other, less-well-known places or roads that are worth a visit from a photographer? - places that the guidebooks say little or nothing about, but are quite beautiful nonetheless?
2. Are there any places I should not bother going - because it is not scenic, inaccessible, etc.?
I thank you in advance for any advice you may offer.
We're planning to go to Iceland somewhere around mid-summer this year.Undoubtedly its one of the most beautiful places on the earth but still I'm a bit worried to go too close to the nature..Volcanoes..glaciers..falls..springs and a lot of natural activity going on every second. Is it still safe to go there to enjoy?
Hi, I'm travelling to Iceland very soon... will be arriving on 20 April evening 7.30pm, may i know which is the best way to get into Reykjavik Downtown ?
And also one of my itinerary is to visit Akurery on 23 - 25 April, however, my hosterl told there is no bus. I do checking on iceland carpooling list, still cant find any rider there. Can please advise how could i get there?
Lastly, one of my dream is to see Northern list during my visit to Iceland. Sad to said there is no northern light trip after 15 April. How can i go about it to fulfill my dream Northern light at this time between 20 - 26 April ?
