Trip Report Iceland for Nine Days

Jump to last reply

Hey fellow travelers! My friend recently returned from a nine day trip in Iceland with him and his girlfriend and I wanted to share their experience. I actually recorded a conversation with him if you want to listen to that - you can find it here:

Him and his girlfriend rented a stick-shift car (because it was about $600 dollars cheaper than an automatic) and drove all around the Golden Circle and beyond. They spent a few days in Reykjavík then explored a lot of the other parts of the country, like the many lagoons, volcanoes, hikes, and countryside. They mostly stayed with locals in Airbnb's but also stayed in a Pod Hostel, which I had no idea existed in Iceland.

They were also fortunate enough to see really vivid Northern Lights, and he talks about some of the conditions necessary to see them. Just thought someone might enjoy hearing his fresh perspective and will hopefully pick up some valuable tips!
