help icelandic!!!

Hello everyone!
My name is Lucie i'm 20 and I'm a french student who live in Paris.
I want to participate to a project this summer which is very important to me: thanks to an association who helps financially young people to travel all over the world, i have the opportunity to go to Iceland for 1 month all alone. My personal project is to meet icelandic people to better understand the icelandic culture and to discover icelandic litterature. That's why i need some help! I need some contacts in the country to reassure the association and to not 'disembark' in an unknown country without knowing someone!
I don't want to disturb of course, my goal is to travel all over the country and not to invite myself to your home of course!
thank you in advance for your little help!!! It's very important to me!!

Hi lucie,

not sure we've got anyone on board here who lives in Iceland.

you make do better contacting the Icelandic tourist Board or a student organisation.

good luck with your trip

What organization? Maybe they will have some contacts to suggest, since I assume that they have done this before.

Also, look here for a start: http://craigslist.meetup.com/cities/...?from=loc_pick

Hi there,

There is this

http://www.couchsurfing.org/

I haven't used it, but I looked at it a while back and you can find people that have been 'vouched for'. Being a single girl on your own, it might be a better option, although you can never be too careful. I think that website also allows you to find people that would be happy just to meet for a coffee etc.

There might even be some family/homestay options.

Good luck!

There are some people who live in Iceland who respond on the TripAdvisor Iceland forums:
