It was really fucking good.
Go somewhere in the mediterranean with really nice food instead if you want, that will be really fucking good as well.
Do what you want basically, I'm not your Dad."
she wants to go anywhere she can get in some water outdoors. I want to go anywhere that sells nice food.
Basically it's not quite warm enough in Andalucia, Crete etc for a beach holiday then, so she's come up with this Iceland gubbins. No plans beyond that really. What was so great good about it Ant?
It was just dead interesting and that.
Reykjavik is very pleasant but small and expensive but all the excursions you can do are amazing experiences. Never been anywhere like it where everything you look at in the landscape is nuts and makes you interested in geology.
I'm sure there's loads of others here better placed to give advice about "doing it properly" as we only did a few nights with very tourist-centred excursion packages but it was fantastic.
but I'd advise driving yourself around and doing your own excursions.
Met a couple while we were there who had been on two excursions to see the Northern Lights on consecutive nights, 10pm - 4am, didn't see a sausage. Me and the missus drove out at 11pm, checked the forecast 10 minutes out of Reykjavik, knew we wouldn't see owt so came back and got pissed instead.
Can give you the name of a decent car rental place if you want it. We hired the tiniest 4x4, a Suzuki Jimny and never had any issues but there won't be as much snow and ice in March.
You're either gonna see them or you're not. We saw them by chance by looking up at the main church on a night when they'd cancelled all the excursions for them and then barely saw anything on the actual excursion.
Cheap vegie sausages
