Keflavík International Airport
Assuming you'll be flying into Keflavík International Airport for Reykjavik, avoid jumping in a taxi and pick the Flybus, Iceland’s airport transfer service. A single journey costs around Rs 1,250. For an extra Rs 350, it’ll drop you off at your hotel.Getting AroundReykjavik is small so you can save yourself some money by walking everywhere in the city centre. You can join a free walking tour every day at 12pm and 2pm.
Midgard is as isolated as it gets, only accessible by Super jeep during the winter time. The cabin where I stayed at was located in the central highlands of Iceland, far away from any light pollution. This was the absolute best place to view the Northern lights. I spent my 2nd and 3rd nights in Midgard, completely detached from civilization. The hut had been the haven of a local family for decades. Warmed up by a crackling fireplace, the accommodation was the typical Icelandic hut style – two bedrooms with twin beds and two lofts. I spent my days discovering the nearby areas by Super jeep and snowmobiles; there is plenty to see with two glaciers and the Tindfjöll mountain range nearby. At night, in between barbecue and story-telling, I awaited the Northern lights to show their majestic dance across the sky.
Blue Lagoon Iceland
That afternoon we headed back down the coast to the Blue Lagoon. I’ve covered it a bit in this post, but it has to be said that, despite the tourist crowds and the accompanying overpricing, it was well worth a visit – one of the most relaxing things I’ve done since the hot baths in Budapest! I’m not really the mud scrub/face mask type, so I couldn’t really say if it did anything for my skin, but my general aches and pains from too many years of sport and the like felt amazing afterwards!!
