Hi, We are planning a trip in the 3rd week of Sept for 9 days. I have an idea of the sightseeing to be done but would really appreciate if I could get some more information if I can save time on my routes. My day to day accommodation is mentioned below.
Day 1. Arrive KEF at 9am. Pick up car at airport and proceed. Overnight at Staður
Day 2 Overnight AKUREYRI
Day 3 Overnight LAUGAR
Day 4 Overnight SEYDISFJORDUR
Day 5 Overnight HOFN
Day 6 Overnight SKOGAR
Day 7 Overnight REYKJAVIK
Day 8 REYKJAVIK Blue Lagoon
Based on my accommodation above what will be the best way to go about sightseeing.
Thanks a ton
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...
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.
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...
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!!
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!
I am planning to visit Ísafjörður during Nov/04 to Nov/06 this year.
1.) Car rental company, I am planning to rent 4x4 and driving around the area as well.
2.) Place to stay.
Any other things that I need to be considered while traveling through this time Ísafjörður?
Thank you very much everyone for your information in advance.
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.
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?
I'm organising a trip in Iceland beginning of august (yes in 10 days...) with my son. I'm looking for a good hotel in the center of Reykjavik, could you recommend hotel to me ? Do I need a car to visit Reykjavik ? Is there a good network of bus, train ? Is Blue Lagoon far from the center, how could we go there ? Is there an hotel in Blue Lagoon that is really unmissable ? No idea then where to go, if I need to have a car... so your advise are welcome :o)
I'm planning to visit Iceland (next week....), arriving in the night of 31st of july, rent a car, booked a room in Reykjavik for 4 nights (till 4th of august), I intend to spend one day visiting Reykjavik, then do a road tour to Golden Circle, the 2nd day, the 3rd day a road tour to Vik and Jokulsarion, then 4th day go to Akureyri to sleep one night, by road 41, then one day to do a road tour to lake Myvatn, Dettifoss... do you think my plan seems to be good ? and What do you advise me to do the next days ? have no idea... Hope my message is clear thank you for your help. Pat
