Prices

APRIL 2010 - Maybe this should now be sub-titled "Phew, Just Got Out Of There In Time!" Not because of the danger of being near an erupting volcano, after all it doesn't seem to worry Icelanders, but think of the cost of having to stay there longer than expected! I’d always wanted to go to...

“A week in Iceland”

published 15/12/2003

Spectacular scenery and extraordinary experiences.

It's bloody cold... and expensive.

Sunday How do you define a day like Sunday? It’s like one of those days in which everything happens at once and it had the feel of an incredibly quickly flowing river, sweeping us along with it. We woke up at around seven and threw some clothes on and left at eight, when my dad drove us to...

“Puffins In Space”

published 23/10/2003

Incredible Scenery and the Northern Lights

The occasional smell of fish!

Wow, what an incredible place to visit. I was excited before travelling to Iceland and at several points during my trip, I was acting like a 5 year old saying how I was truly excited!! So, why was I so excited, the name Iceland doesn't sound exactly welcoming. What were the highlights of my trip...

Iceland is a unique travel destination and can be memorable for many a visitor but it's not necessarily the place to visit for everyone. It's an expensive country and whilst getting there has become cheaper in recent times, particularly from Europe and the prices of articles have dropped during...

Fantastic scenery, loads of different experiences

Expensive and can be cold

Whenever I tell my friends that I've just been to Iceland some wisecrack always says something like "did you get some pizzas then?" Anyway we have just been to the country of Iceland for a weeks visit over the May bank holiday and it was quite an experience. We travelled from Heathrow, although...

High cost of living, short tourist season

This is a bit of a travel diary sort of thing. If you world believe it, this is actually an edited version. I took my girlfriend, Debbie, on a surprise three week holiday there in September 2000. Being a student I had to work at weekends and nights for a catering agency (crap money for long...

Expensive once you are there

With just 250,000 inhabitants the country has one phone book which is sorted by first names! The fact that the country is so small and sparsely populated makes the people so much more friendly than anywhere in the UK but this is by no means the only attraction. If you only need one reason to...

difficult to get around, very expensive

The land of fire and ice is a world like no other, crammed full of increadible natural wonders and beautiful (if not a little sparse) countryside. My holiday to Iceland covered most of this increadible island, from the blue lagoon and explosive geysirs of the south through the stunning ice capped...

Views, Geography, Adventure!

Cost

Sorry to copy the joke made on another Iceland Op, but its true - the 'old joke, still not funny' line of ' I've been to Iceland', 'Oh really, did you pick me up some pizzas' has worn thinner than the seat of George W's pants during the 2000 elections. Anyway. I went to Iceland last July on a 2...

“Wonderful Iceland!”

published 12/07/2000

Fantastic scenery

A trifle expensive

I must confess to being a little biased since I was born in Iceland! However, it is a fantastic country for anyone to visit. The scenery is absolutely breathtaking. Much of the country is volcanic, and to be surrounded by volcanoes seems amazing to most people. The waterfalls such as Gulfoss are...

If you love the great outdoors and fancy something different, try Iceland! The whole place pulsates with the Earth's energy: there are waterfalls, geysers, bubbling mud pools, glaciers and active volcanoes as well as the snow-capped peaks and fjords associated with Scandinavia. Although Iceland...

“AKUREYRI”

published 18/10/2000

SEE THE WHALES, THE DOLPHINS and THE PUFFINS

STILL EXPENSIVE

Akureyri lies in the North of Iceland, which lies between the North Atlantic and the Arctic Ocean. The whole island was created by volcanic activity and the area to the South East of Akureyri is still extremely active and eruptions occur at almost any time. This country belonged to Norway, then...

Constituting over 50% of Iceland’s coastline, Isafjordur (or the West Fjords) have always conjured up a wild existence in my mind. I must admit right from the outset that this is always one area that I have wanted to explore in great detail but never made it all the way up to what is also...

Well of all the places in the world to go you would think, why would one pick a cold, dark expensive place! Here is why! Iceland great! but very cold!!! When we got to Reykjavik, we couldn't believe how small it was.... Literally 1 street (with a few side streets) about a mile long was the...
