2015: Solo Trip to Iceland
I am currently planning a solo trip to Iceland for July 2015. Here is my itinerary thus far:
Cities & villages:
- Reykjavik: The capitol of Iceland (southwestern Iceland).
- Seljalandsfoss: Iceland’s most famous waterfall (southern Iceland).
- Laugavegur: Epic landscape (southwestern Iceland).
- LOFT Hostel in Reykjavik
- Iceland Air – national airline
- Samferda– rideshare program popular at hostels
- Strætó – bus route serving Iceland, and apparently the most economical way to travel around Iceland as a solo traveler.
For My Next Visit To Iceland:
- Seyðisfjörður: Town with lots of art and hiking (east Iceland).
- Akureyri: Second largest town in Iceland (northern Iceland).
- Fjadrargljufur: Mossy canyon (southeastern Iceland).
- Mývatn: Volcanic lake with lots of birds to photograph (northern Iceland).
- West Fjords: More epic landscape (northwestern Iceland).
- Snæfellsnes: It has all the national attractions in one place (western Iceland).
- Eastfjords: Beautiful and quiet landscape (eastern Iceland).
- Álfaskólinn: Certification course on Icelandic folklore for tourists.
- Brugghusbarinn: Icelandic brewery/cafe in Akureyri.
- Græni Hatturinn (aka: The Green Hat): music venue in Akureyri.
- Gotubarinn: Piano bar in with an “old Akureyri feel”.
- Höfn Glacier Museum
- Skálholt Summer Concerts: free contemporary and early music festival in Skálholt.
- Glacier Walk
- Turf house
- Community swimming pool (more affordable option to the Blue Lagoon – and I hear they’re much better!)
