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).

Sights:

Waterful, green rolling landscape, and grazing sheep.

Accommodations

Transport

  • 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.

  • Eastfjords: Beautiful and quiet landscape (eastern Iceland).

Attractions:

  • Álfaskólinn: Certification course on Icelandic folklore for tourists.
  • Brugghusbarinn: Icelandic brewery/cafe in Akureyri.
  • Græni Hatturinn (aka: The Green Hat): music venue in Akureyri.

  • Höfn Glacier Museum
  • Skálholt Summer Concerts: free contemporary and early music festival in Skálholt.
  • Glacier Walk
