      Quick response?? Other entry points to Glymur Falls?

      Iceland Yesterday

      I am at the main parking lot. Both the left and right trails are roped off after about 150 metres, you can get as far as seeing the arch only.

      Is there another entry way to take the hike up to the falls? I am thinking of getting back on the road and actually driving 20 miles in either direction to see if I find another.

      Thanks as always...

    • Good place for Camping, Day Hiking or Day Trekking

      Iceland Jul 19, 2016 at 8:49 PM

      Hello Experts!

      Does somebody have recommendation about place for camping and day hiking/trekking?
      We will visit Iceland from 5th to 21st August. And I will go around Iceland by rental car ( not 4x4).

      I would like to enjoy day hiking/trekking from campgrounds. I already found some nice campgrounds as below.
      Do you have any recommendation about other campgrounds? And could you advice day hiking/trekking routes near campgrounds? If you also share some map, gps or websites about themI would appreciate it very much!!

      -Flokalundur (Hellulaug)







      -Skaftafell Visitor Centre / Tjaldsvテヲテーiテー テュ Svテュnafelli



      We will bring 3 seasons tents, gore-tex jacket and pants, sleeping Bag (comfort zone -2℃, low -7℃). Is it enough for camping in August?

      Thank you for your advice!

      Raudfeldsgja canyon?

      Iceland Jul 23, 2016 at 7:43 AM

      I drove past it several times yesterday, but didn't stop because of heavy rains. I thought it was on 574, about 45 mins from Hellissandur, where I camping.

      My Garmin Gps doesn't have it on there, my Google maps does, but keeps taking me through long and wrong ways.

      Can anyone tell me the directions from Hellissandur?

      Thanks for the help...

      Initial Questions for October end tour

      Iceland Jul 9, 2016 at 4:36 AM

      I have booked flight tickets to travel end October to Reykjavik. I will be travelling with my wife and 2 kids. We plan to rent the car to go around places and want to take conducted tour to travel to see Northern Lights. Here are my questions - a) Is Car driving to places easy or any precautions needed with respect to weather, road conditions and remoteness during end of October b) Can anyone recommend reliable tour companies to see Northern Lights - Viator gives few and prices look okay but wanted to know from experienced travellers c) We are vegetarians - can we manage for our 4 days trip. Please provide your response and any other tips. I will come back with more questions on specific places that we want to see at a latter stage.

    • When to plan my Iceland trip

      Iceland Jul 22, 2016 at 8:49 AM

      I am taking my first solo trip to Iceland and am wondering if there were month recommendations?
      I'm looking in the March-May time frame to beat summer rates (as I am on a budget). It looks like April/May has better travel conditions but will I be better off going during another time?

      • Also any recommendations about things I must see/places to go would be very appreciated, of course I am doing a lot of research but it's always helpful to hear some honest opinions.

      Thank you!
