  1. Expensive "Hotels & Accommodations" in Reykjavik, Iceland
    Centrehotel Thingholt is an extremely nice hotel in the centre of Rekjavik, less than five minute’s walk from the city centre and the Iceland Excursions bus office. From the outside, it doesn’t look very conspicuous and you might have missed it, …
  2. Free! "Sights & Attractions" in Geysir, Iceland
    Geysir is the geyser that all geysers are named after. The Geyser area is a geothermal hotspot in Iceland. It is one of the most incredible, indescribable (well, I know I'm trying, but still...) places I have ever seen in my life. Driving alon…

  3. Free! "Sights & Attractions" in Gullfoss, Iceland
    Gullfoss is one of the most powerful falls in Europe (yes, it is in Europe - the rift valley is to the west of the falls!), and it is very beautiful. Gullfoss was translated for me as the Golden Falls. Whne we were there it's flow was much reduc…
  4. Average priced "Sights & Attractions" in Hengill, Iceland
    Actually, I'm not sure how much entrance is, because I went as part of a tour. Hellisheidi power plant is very interesting. There are excellent English spekaing guides in the visitor centre, and lots of displays and short videos explaining how ge…
  5. Average priced "Restaurants, Cafes & Food" in Reykjavik, Iceland
    Shalimar is the best curry house I have been to in years. I literally can’t remember eating better curry, anywhere. Not event the curry I had in the sunshine at the Mela. It doesn’t look particularly exciting, with a slightly open kitchen …

    Tabascos is a Mexican-Icelandic restaurant in the centre of Rekjavik, not far from the lake and the old harbour. It is pleasantly decorated, has nice staff, and is open slightly later on Sundays than the other restaurants in the area. The atmosphere…
  7. Free! "Sights & Attractions" in Thingvellir, Iceland
    Thingvellir is one of the most stunningly pretty places I have ever been. It is a national park at the centre of the National Consciousness of Icelanders, and is listed on the Unesco World Heritage site list. It includes the site of the Allthin…
  8. Average priced "Restaurants, Cafes & Food" in Reykjavik, Iceland
    It's worth noting htat average means average for what I spent in Reykjavik; the whle meal including drinks came to about the equivalent of £30 a head. Rossopomodoro is, on a little research, an internaitonal chain of Italian restaurants. I don't…
  9. Average priced "Restaurants, Cafes & Food" in Reykjavik, Iceland
    Geysir is a relaxed restaurant bistro in the centre of Reykjavik, not far from the harbour. It is in the same building as the tourist office, but open later. The food is excelent, featuring fresh Icelandic ingredients and a nice wine list. I had …
  10. Average priced "Nightlife & Entertainment" in Reykjavik, Iceland
    The English Pub is a bar near the centre of Reykjavik. As I live in England, it is always interesting to go to English theme pubs to see what the world thinks of us. It seems to come down to pipe smoking and comedy mustaches, which I guess is not t…
