Ice Ice Baby; walking on the Solheimajokull Glacier
Review of Solheimajokull Glacier by cr01

Advantages: A chance to see something you can't do in the UK
Disadvantages: All that gear....

I just had to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory didn’t I? My first steps had been hesitant but I had gained confidence throughout the two hour walk. It was perhaps during our final 300 yards when I suddenly tripped over my bulky footwear and fell mos ... Read review

Diamond Geyser
Review of Strokkur, Geysir by fizzytom

Advantages: The spectacle is free; rarely seen phenomena; accessible to all
Disadvantages: Visitor centre is expensive; it gets very cold at this exposed spot

For as long as I can remember I have wanted to visit one of those natural hot springs that shoots steaming water up into the air from deep below the earth’s surface and, while there were lots of things I was looking forward to seeing and experiencing on m ... Read review

You'll Not Be Blue at This Lagoon
Review of The Blue Lagoon, Iceland by fizzytom

Advantages: A unique experience; shallow so fine for non-swimmers
Disadvantages: Expensive but worth it; shallow for swimmers; gets busy

The Blue Lagoon is one of Iceland’s most popular tourist attractions It’s a manmade outdoor bathing pool (I hesitate to call it a swimming pool because even at its deepest it’s still fairly shallow) and spa which uses the water from the nearby geothermal ... Read review

Traverse Iceland the bumpy way!
Review of Kjolur Route, Iceland by dangaroo

Advantages: Isolation, unique landscape
Disadvantages: Bus has a rather touristic feel, since it's basically only tourists using it

The Kjolur is a highland road in Iceland which goes from just after the hamlet of Varmalid some kilometres west of Akureyri to The Golden Circle close to Reykjavik. Although it is passable without a 4WD, it would have been ny on impossible when we went de ... Read review

Gushing Geysers
Review of Strokkur, Geysir by Absinthe_Fairy

Advantages: Watching Strokkur erupt was a fantastic experience
Disadvantages: Exhibition was a bit basic

Geysers, or hot springs, exist all around Iceland with one of the main areas being in the south west. As the area is within easy reach of the capital, Reykjavik, it is one of the most commonly visited sites in Iceland, particularly as it forms part of the ... Read review

Review of General: Iceland by dangaroo

Playing Hooky in Hveragerdi
Review of Hveragerdi by hiker

Advantages: A real insight into small-town Iceland
Disadvantages: The "tourist attractions" aren't all they're cracked up to be.

This was supposed to be our final full walking day in Iceland, but I opted out. Partly this was because of the combination of the plan and the weather forecast: 11 miles including stream-wading under a forecast of "light rain, heavier later"… ? Nah ... Read review

Blissfully Bleak Kjolur Outback
Review of Kjolur Route, Iceland by hiker

Advantages: The planet still being formed. Desolation at its most beautiful.
Disadvantages: None unless you're in a hurry or get motion sickness - not the smoothest of roads.

The only main road in Iceland goes around the outside. There's a very good reason for that – virtually all of the towns and villages in the country hunker down by the coast. To find out why that might be, you need to take a trip into the interior. Th ... Read review
