    • Iceland in a week

      Reykjavík Jan 26, 2017 at 5:20 AM

      My husband and I are planning to visit Iceland just for a few days (5-7) in march. Can someone please advise what can we visit/see during our short stay. We would love to see Northern lights if possible. I was thinking to stay in Reykjavik for a couple of nights and then perhaps somewhere else for a few nights?
      Any advice would be appreciated.
      Thanks

    • 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

      Hi,

      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.

      Thanks,
      Charley

      I have not been since long time in Grindavik. Can anyone tell me of that military radio station is still located near town? Cheers, ADC.
