Iceland in January - are we Gonzo?

Jump to last reply

Greetings fodorites! It has been a while, but with 2 little ones now I dared not restart the fodors addiction...and didn't really have too much reason to until now.

Given the kronur's crash vs the Dollar (141.8 at yesterday's trading, was 71.2 in 2006!) Reykjavik is looking tempting for our annual kid-free jaunt, esp given Icelandair's current package fire sale. So if anyone could help me answer the following I'd be much obliged:

1) sunlight = 6 hours' worth in January. Is this a problem? In other words, is there enough to see and do indoors when it's dark to make 3 days worth it?

2) Husband is not sure about #1, so can somebody please tell me the price of a beer there right now? It would help make my case...

3) Temperatures don't look that bad for January, but regarding the daylight constriction what would be the best use of our time tour-wise? We'd definitely do the Blue Lagoon on our last day before the flight back.

Thank you all for any help you could provide, and Happy Thanksgiving to all my fellow Yanks.
