Radisson Blu 1919 Hotel, Reykjavik
Travel Blogs from Reykjavík
This would be our last day of driving to complete the Ring Road trip. The only parts we missed were the Eastern Fjords (which is a seperate trip all within itself), the interior glaciers and extensive hiking in the Myvtan area. I loved Iceland so much that I just might be willing to bend my rules of not repeating vacations. I think that there is …

The place was virtually deserted when we arrived, so we had the guide all to ourselves, until a couple of bus loads of tourists arrived later on.

This was the start of our trip, our air travel to Amsterdam by way of Reykjavik.
I've never heard Icelandic spoken before. Quite a unique and beautiful language. I can't pick up on any words at all. It has the same sort of bouncy cadence as Polish but Adam couldn't understand it either.

TravelPod Member ReviewsRadisson Blu 1919 Hotel, Reykjavik Reykjavík
This is a very cute hotel right in the center of the city. The famous Icelandic hot dog stand is directly across the street and Harpa can be viewed as soon as you step out the doors. It's in a quaint shopping and eating area and was the perfect place for us to rest our heads before starting to drive the Ring Road. Loved it!
