Q & A

  • What would you have changed?

    It was an amazing trip, and I wouldn't have changed anything. This is of course personal opinion. The only thing to mention here, is that the prices are quite high. But you can find economic ways to travel (for example not go to restaurant, but buy at supermarket and cook at hostel)

  • Anything go wrong during the trip?

    As I mentioned, we were very lucky with the weather. You just have to take care with the wind and the weather, since it can change from one moment to another. Besides that, it's a safe country with nice people.

  • How was the food?

    The tomato soup place for sure. If you want you can try some specialties of Iceland maybe in Reykjavik, but I do not have any concrete recommendations.

  • What tips would you give a friend?

    Take warm cloths with you

  • Packing tips?

    Warm cloths and be prepared for rain

  • Transportation Tips?

    Renting a car was fine and easy, streets are good to drive on. Sometimes there are more adventurous roads, but it is still ok
