NORTHERN LIGHTS*

*if you're lucky

Looks like a nasty place to stay and if you plan to stay in Reykjavik for 7 days then you'll be missing all of the best bits Iceland has to offer.

3 nights in Reykjavik is plenty.

Did you read the reviews of the place



Yes, but to trust tripadvisor is like like trusting IMDB for film reviews.

I've walked past the place and whilst it's in a good location, it's not nice - more of a hostel for travellers looking for somewhere cheap to stay. You wouldn't chose to stay there for a 7 night holiday with a loved one. The shared bathroom is also not appealing.

Also, 7 nights in Reykjavik and you'll be bored. Great restaurants, a few great places to visit but all of the best stuff is a few hours away.

Reykjavík is lovely, just be aware that it is expensive. The excursions are worth getting as a package as Iceland can be a bit of a pain to get around otherwise.
You can easily fill 7 days with stuff to do from Reykjavík, but it will cost you.

I recommend the blue lagoon, northern light, and the golden circle tour, but there are lots of others. SCUBA Diving is next on my list there - the water is crystal clear

I'm just back from a photography trip to Iceland, absolutely stunning country, but you do need to venture out of Reykjavik, there's not a huge amount to see in the city, although a trip up to the top of Hallgrimskirkja and a wander round the Harpa concert hall should be on your itinerary.

Hiring a car and going exploring is the best thing to do, roads are relatively quiet out of the city, but would advise being an experienced driver, some of the roads do get a little iced over at times :-)

Consulting a guide or the tourist information is also well-advised, can tell you about all sorts of places that are not the usual tourist traps.

If you needed some persuasion on whether to go, very small number of the things I saw are here, I've only got another 3,000 or so photographs to edit :-)

As a single guy, I've always wanted to travel to Iceland alone.

So, realistically speaking, return flights for one, accommodation and travel money to spare, I could get a week's break in Iceland for around £500?

Hot!

James! How's the photography going? Full time now?

discover-the-world.co.uk/en/…ts/ this is a travel company so in an attempt to push their wares one might expect some exaggeration as to best times.

"The best time to see the northern lights in Iceland is October to April, with peak visibility from December to February. But please keep in mind that your ability to see them will depend on factors like weather and solar activity, so sightings cannot be guaranteed during your holiday" extract from the visit Iceland website - non commercial.

Incidentally, you get about 4 hours of daylight depending when you go in winter.

Very kind of you to say! With regards to going to Iceland, do it! I've only just got back and already planning a return trip in the summer! Thinking fly into Keflavik, hire a car, and just drive the entire circumference of the country, the north is supposed to be pretty spectacular, sadly didn't get that far last time round.

Oh dear, Bristol Airport. Not the easiest of airports to get to & once there by the time you've walked to the plane you'll be near to Iceland anyway.
