First let me start by saying that we got a fabulous deal. Round trip airfare, 6 nights in a hotel with breakfast, and round trip bus transfer airport to hotel and back for $718 (USA dollars) each. I found this on Icelandair website and all I did was click on vacation package and “Build your own”. As I look now, a couple could go March 10, 2017 for 5 nights with hotel and breakfast for $616 each. Icelandair <<There is a link for you
BTW If you are looking for a blog with drunken twenty year olds making duck face in Reykjavic….wrong blog. This is more like Thelma and Louise 🙂
Someone warned my friend Connie that seven days was too long. Trust me there is plenty to do. On our arrival day we explored the Capital city Reykjavik. We found a bar with beer and bread bowl soup. Yummy and reasonably priced. Svarta Kaffid at Laugavegi 54
There were six women in our group. We made a stop at guide to Iceland and set up day trips for each of the following days. We didn’t all want to do the same things. Oddly enough i couldn’t talk four of them into snorkeling in Iceland! Francisco was very helpful. He probably needs Prozac now though.

Golden Circle & Snorkeling
And here we had a small snafu. It pays to double check your documents. Connie and I sat and waited for our bus to get us for the Circle tour at 8:30 am and we waited in vain. They completely made it up to us. After we finished snorkeling Guide to Iceland sent a private car and driver and Connie and I saw everything (and more) that the bus tour saw. But in a car with just the two of us and a driver who suggested stopping for ice cream at a local farm. Absolutely happy with that outcome.
I still can’t believe I talked Connie into snorkeling in 36° water : D

Inside The Volcano Tour
First we hiked about two miles.
Then we killed some some and explored this.
Then we hiked up that ^ The buildings are base camp where we were rewarded with lamb stew after our trip 400 feet into the volcano.
Porcupine Quill Earrings Made In Iceland. I brought them to the bottom of the volcano to make them extra special. I will have to go back and make more. Sold out!
