TravelPod Member Reviews101 Guesthouse Reykjavík
We chose 101 Guesthouse because it was one of the cheaper places in Reykjavik we could find. With a fairly central location, the guesthouse was clean and the staff were friendly. The rooms were fairly small but functional and the kitchen was also handy to have. Our room was on the main street so traffic noise was a bit of an issue. We are staying here again on our way back home and I don't have any issues with coming back.

... one of the volcanos. Hard work, but the sun shining on our face and beautiful surroundings made it bearable. Even more, the rewards that we got offered for this job were beyond expectation.
The path that we were making was leading to the volcano called Thrihnukagigur, literally meaning the peak of the three mountains. At the top of this volcano there was a hole. A hole like in many volcanos. Unique part of this one however ...
... ll find just anywhere, they are a breed developed in Iceland. They are pony-sized, sure footed, friendly & very hardy. They grow a thick winter coat which they were shedding today & I got horse hair all over me. We rode through the lava fields at the base of the glacier & through the surf on the beach. It was a lot of fun - but I can already feel my muscles getting sore, so it should make for an interesting day tomorrow!
... tell you '3 million years ago all this happened and left us this 3 inches of sediment...' like who cares?" It may not sound funny to you but I DIED laughing!
We also heard some really fascinating info about Iceland on the tour from David. History, economics, geology, culture, and all kinds of stuff! He answered a lot of the questions we've been asking ourselves in the past couple days, which was highly convenient. I won't bore you with everything ...
