      Quick response?? Other entry points to Glymur Falls?

      Iceland Jul 25, 2016 at 12:42 PM

      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...

    • Affordable longer-term accomodation in Reykjavik

      Reykjavík 19 hours ago

      My son and his friend from Cardiff University are spending a year studying at University of Iceland and have just arrived there. Currently the only affordable accommodation is Keflavick - quite a way to travel in everyday to study. Their monthly grant is only about £600-650 and most of the accommodation in the capital seems to be about that and more which leaves nothing for food etc. Does anyone know of a website that has affordable accommodation. Unfortunately the University hasn't been able to help.

    • Looking for travelers to share a car and drive through Iceland?

      Iceland Aug 4, 2016 at 12:25 PM

      Hi!
      Do you know of any website or group where I can meet people traveling to Iceland? I am planning to go on a roadtrip for a week (September 21-28), but I am traveling with just one person and I would like to share the fun (and the expenses) with one or two more travelers. Do you happen to know where I can meet people to travel with?
      Thanks for your help!
      Cheers,

    • Travelling from Reykjavik to Vik (via the Golden Circle Route)

      Iceland Jul 27, 2016 at 10:25 PM

      Hi there, 

      Hoping someone can point me in the right direction (or down the right roads!) for our upcoming trip to Iceland. We will be in Iceland for 4 full days and have booked accommodation as follows. Just hoping someone can tell me roughly how long (driving time) and directions from the Golden Circle to Vik and whether what I have planned as an itinerary is do-able and not too rushed! If there's anyting I've missed on Day 2 and 3, can you also let me know.

      We are hoping to do the following:

      DAY 1: Leave Reykjavik early morning and drive out onto Golden Circle Route (via Nesjavellir, Thingvellir, Geysir and Strokkur, and Gullfoss Waterfall) before heading to Vik (or actually the Mid Hvoll Cottages 10 km from Dyrhólaey peninsula).

      DAY 2: Visit Reynisfjall Black Sands Beach, Dyrhólaey rock arch, Kirkjubæjarklaustur and Jokulsarlon laggon before heading back to Mid Hvoll Cottages.

      DAY 3: Head back to Reykjavik, stopping at Vik, Seljaladsfoss Waterfall and ​Skogafoss Waterfall. (would we fit in a detour drive around Eyjafjallajokull and Solheimajokull glaciers?) before ending up back in Reykjavik for the night. 

      DAY 4: Around Reykjavik before heading out to the Blue Lagoonand then to the airpoart for an evening flight.

      Thanks for any advice you can give me.

      Best Travel Between Keflavik and Reykjavik Airports

      Iceland Aug 3, 2016 at 5:43 PM

      We have a flight from Toronto into Keflavik at 4:40 am on a Saturday, and need to catch another flight out of Reykjavik airport at 10:45 am the same day. What is the best way to travel between the two airports? I know they are 40-50 minutes apart, but all I can find for buses or shuttles seem to go to downtown Reykjavik (to the hotels). We will need to do the opposite trip 2 weeks later. Any help is appreciated. Thank you

      Iceland Aug 15, 2016 at 3:17 AM

      Hi! I'm gonna land in Iceland at the end of the season (26/8) and travel for 2 weeks.

      I wanted to know what would be cheaper- should I book online,

      or could I try getting better rates on renting a car when I land (because it's the end of the season)?
      thanks!
