    • 3 Day Itinerary

      Iceland Yesterday

      For those who are quite familiar with the country of Iceland, I am planning a trip to Iceland in March and had questions regarding a one-day itinerary of mine. I had hoped to use one day to go through the Golden Circle while using the 2nd half to go through the southern part of the country. Since I will be visiting in March, I believe the sun will be up for about 11 hours (9am-7pm) so I wanted to see what thoughts are regarding this itinerary:

      Start @ 8am:
      -Thingvellir
      -Geysir
      -Strokkur Geysir
      -Gulfoss Falls
      -Kerid
      -Seljalandsfoss Waterfall
      -Gljúfrabúi Waterfall
      -Skógafoss Waterfall
      -Path to Plane Wreck
      -Black Sand Beach

      End around 7-8pm

      Thanks!

      Itinerary Help

      Iceland Jan 21, 2017 at 5:52 PM

      Trying to finalize plans for a shortish trip in June. Looks like it's going to be Iceland. We'll have 9 days on the ground excluding travel days and plan to drive Ring Road. I'm very early in my research and am trying to figure where we'll spend each night. We want to see whatever wildlife we can - whales, puffins, etc. Any help would be appreciated!

      driving the south coast from keflavik

      Keflavík Mar 7, 2016 at 5:26 AM

      we will be in keflavik for 2 days on a stopover. plan to rent a car and perhaps drive south toward kleifarvatn lake, seltun and the krysuvikurberg cliffs. if time allows, we would drive further or perhaps circle around to see some of the golden circle sites. any advice or opinions of this? we are thinking a 6-8 hr day. we are staying in the keflavik airport hotel.

    • Dinner in Grindavik

      Grindavík 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

      Grindavík 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
