    • 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
      Monika

      by sheriK9 Online Now 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.
