Ok, so this isn't something you will find a lot of information about. Enjoying Iceland's numerous hot springs are some of the most amazing travel experiences you can have. When you decide to travel to Reykjavík, the world's northernmost capital of a sovereign state, the town of Hveragerđi is the closest swim-able hot spring area, and makes a …
The Golden Circle is pretty much mandatory if you decide to come to Iceland. Most tour's list 3 stops to complete the circle. You have Thingvellir National Park, the geysirs, and gullfoss. Assuming you took my advice in my day 1 entry, you have a car and you are doing the tour yourself. Really, don't spend the 573442592 krona on a bus tour, you …
The flight was quite uneventful, if annoyingly short - took off at 8pm, landed at 6am, with 5 hours in the air and very little sleep! It was still dark, and was to stay dark until about 11pm - very strange to be walking around at 7am in the glow of streetlights when your body says it's 2am. That said, my walk into and around Reykjavik as the sun rose - very slowly as it's so far north - was excellent. I grabbed a coffee and a hot dog from a stand good enough for ...
... location on the rift of two tectonic plates using the heat provided at this location to warm water which is then piped to the buildings in the country via underground pipes to provide a method of heating. They also run these pipes close to the pavement along the streets, to prevent snow from being able to settle and ice from forming in the coldest weather. Pretty ...
... we immediately decided to all go out on the town that evening. I also ended up meeting a group of germans that were going to rent a car and drive to some of the sights in iceland the next day. They invited me and i jumped on that one! I had a tour booked, but was able to cancel it. it ended up being a ton of fun and was happy i could go w some cool people and had an amazing time as well. much better than the ...

TravelPod Member ReviewsFosshotel Lind Reykjavík
I found this hotel on venere.com and was glad i picked it. It is located just inside the city center within walking distance of tons of major restaurants and bars. It is also right around the corner from the main shopping street of Laugavegur. The hotel also a offers a very decent breakfast from 6am till 10am, which is pretty great considering the high prices of downtown Reykjavik. The hotel does offer free parking (if you come to Iceland, you should rent a car. there are TONS of great things to see outside the city, and why pay for a tour when you are more than capable of driving a small rent a car to most attractions) but the lot is very small and they only have one remote to open the gates of the lot. So, to clarify, if you want to leave the lot, you need to get the remote from the front desk, pull out in front of the hotel, run back in to give them back the gate remote, and do the same thing when you arrive back. Not a big deal just a bit of an inconvenience. Other than that the place was great, clean rooms, black out curtains, and the front desk people were helpful, i would stay there again.
