Trip review
Iceland

loved their trip to Iceland

We had a ten day self drive holiday starting in Reykjavik and heading around the entire route one. The whole holiday was fantastic, even on the more travel intensive days. The landscape is amazing and there are plenty of places to stop and take in the views and the itinerary was full of suggestions for the places to see and towns to visit. Unfortunately we were unable to see a few of the sights as some roads in the north were closed but this led us to other area we wouldn't have seen otherwise. The accommodation was perfectly situated and the hosts always welcoming and we were even fortunate enough to have an upgrade on our car due to the weather conditions. There was a slight mix up with our original whale watching booking which after one very quick phone call was resolved and Nika, our travel agent kindly rearranged our trip to a more suitable time and location.

Best parts:
For me it was hiking trails around lake Myvatn that hadn't been walk on for some time. Wading through three foot or more of crisp snow amongst volcanic spires is pretty amazing. Or standing on top of a glacier watching the sun go down over a recently active volcano.
Worst parts:
Liquorice chocolate. I know, each to their own but it's just wrong 😄
