    • How do I write/convert Icelandic alphabets to English alphabets?

      Iceland Jan 30, 2016 at 4:13 AM

      Sorry if this question is out of point for this forum but this is my best chance...
      I need to fill up a written form at my local bank to send currency to Iceland.
      Problem is, my bank requires the form to be written in English block letters.

      Borgartúni = Borgartuni
      Lögreglan = Logreglan
      Höfuðborgarsvæðinu = Hofuoborgarsvaeoinu

      Will the above alphabet substitution make sense to the Icelanders??

      Looking forward to your advice!
      Thank you so much!!! :)

    • Breakfast In Rejkevik

      Iceland Jan 20, 2016 at 4:29 PM

      We will be arriving in Iceland the morning of Feb 21 and then staying at Rejkevik, Natura Hotel. Although the hotel does have a restaurant that serves breakfast we would prefer not to eat there that first morning since we are entitled to free breakfast AFTER that day. Is there a restaurant close to the hotel that serves Breakfast? We must be back to the hotel by 12:30 for pickup for an excursion. It seems the only restaurants for breakfast are in the City Center and we are afraid we would have a hard time getting there and back in time. Suggestions???????

      I'll be in Iceland first week of June 2016 and wanted to do some tours (golden circle, puffin, south shore). Will I be okay waiting til I get there to book them? I don't want to book them in advance just in case I want to relax or switch days due to weather. I'm so excited!!

      Sights outside of Reykjavik

      If we only have a week in Iceland, aside from Reykjavik, what would the one or two other major locations be that we should travel to to get a more of a sense of the country? Thingvellir National Park? Thjorsarver Wetlands? Golden Circle? Any of the glaciers? Ion, Glymur, Budir, Stracta, or Kerlingarfjoll hotels? Or any other sights?

    • 6 days in Iceland in February

      Iceland Jan 17, 2016 at 7:11 PM

      Hello! I am planning a trip to Iceland at the end of February and wanted advice on the possible itinerary. We would like to spend a few days in Reykjavik but also want to go to the Vatnajökull region. Some of the things we know we'd like to do are visit the Blue Lagoon, wander around Reykjavik, go on a tour of the Golden Circle and I'm really interested in checking out the ice caves and glaciers, which is why we want to go to the Vatnajökull region. How easy will it be to drive between these places during February? Any advice on the itinerary and other things to see and do would be appreciated!

      Can anyone tell me the up to date customs limit for bringing wine into Iceland in my suitcase, I have looked at various websites and some contradict others. I will be travelling with my wife from the UK and we are intending to pack 3 boxes of wine that each contain 2.25 litres in our suitcase. So that's 6.75 litres in total. This is between us, not each. We will not be bringing any spirits or tobacco products. Thankyou.

      My in-laws recently returned from a trip from Reykjavic, Iceland. They stayed at the Centerhotel Plaza and purchased a hat at the store next to the hotel. It was a blue baseball cap with Iceland and a patch with a sheep on the front that was made from real sheep wool. He wore that hat everywhere since they came home a few weeks ago. Until today. He was volunteering to pack food and medical supplies for third world countries. Someone there stole his hat from his work station while he was in the restroom. Tonight I have a heartbroken kiddo on my hands. Can someone help me find the name and email of the store?
