I´m from Iceland
There is alot you can do here and if you are planning on taking photos bring alot of rolls
When are you thinking of coming here and for how long?
Must see places that every tourist goes to see here is the so cold "Golden circkle" Usually gone by 50 people on a bus. You go and see "Geysir" that has not erupted or some time now but there is a little one next to it that eruptes every 8-15 minutes called Strokkur. I´ve taken some pics of it......
Next stop, only 5 minutes away from Geysir, is Gullfoss the most powerfull waterfall in Iceland. To be honest he is not that special, there is alot of other waterfalls that are more beatiful. Next stop after that is Ţingvellir. That is our national park and is a pretty cool place. That plave has alot of history. After that you go to the Blue Lagoon.
The place urban_alchemist talks about is Snćfellsnes. That is one of my favourite places here. There you have the clacier where you can go snowmobiling and also take a ride with a snowcar ( dont know the word for that car
) to the top.
Took these pictures there on IPP that was held there every year for a few years.
There is also places to surf there if you are into that and also alot of interesting beaches.
Another place that is my favorite here is Ţórsmörk. Its a Valley between 2 Claciers. Truly amazing place.
There is so many things that you can do here but the prices are most of the time skyhigh. But the ecanomics here now are down the drain so they say it is not so expensive for tourist to come here now. 1$ is 126 icelandic krónas now, one year ago it was 60 krónas
If you like to go to the pubs and have a drink or see some band playing there is always something going on here every weekend. Icelanders drink alot, me being an exeption though, never had a drink in my life
. So beeing at the pubs and chating with the Icelanders can be interesting
All the pubs are in the same area , downtown Reykjavík, and most of them next to each other so you dont have to travel around town to go to the next one, never more then 10 min walk to the one furthest away.
There are also alot of hotels downtown. I´m not sure of the prices though on Hotel sooms here. Hótel Frón that Joe talked about is almost in the center of Laugavegur that is the biggest shopping/cafés/pubs street here in Reykjavík.
