Need suggestions for Marathon runner who is dragging his wife to iceland

Jump to last reply

My husband is an avid marathoner, completing boston in april, and he wants to run in Iceland at the end of August (24th to be exact). We are late 30's (ok 39) and will be childless for this trip. We love to travel and have been a lot of places just didn't expect Iceland. has never been on my "oh my I have to go list". Having said all of this, we will depart august 20 from Atlanta and have 3 days to sight see, etc before he will get in his running mode. Questions...
1. Restaurants. Pretty adventurous eaters but it is a vacation so I don't think I want odd fish every meal. Give me one or two this is good local food restaurants and than a few stand by's with pasta or veges. some of the restaurants suggested by marathon club were Café paris, tveir fiskar (sp?), caruso
2. Day trip. If you could take one, what would it be? The Golden Circle, BLue Lagoon, try to catch the northern lights?
3. Sounds like public transportation is accessible around the city.

Fodorites always have an edge on what to do and not ashamed of giving an opinion!
Thanks!
