Big city. Fun to walk around the town. We did the HAL excursion, Best of the Golden Circle: Thingvellir, Gullfoss & Geysir, which was excellent. We saw a lot! The overnight stay permitted us to take another excursion with HAL called Glacier Safari by 4-wheel Drive & a Walk in a Glacier Cave. It was such an unusual excursion. We saw snow falling on the top of the glacier. You need warm clothing for this tour.

Absolutely loved Reykjavik! I think I could live there. We had an overnight here so we did an excursion the first day and just enjoyed the city the second day. The excursion we did, Glacier Walk and Waterfalls was unbelievable - driving on a glacier and going into a glacier - amazing! The tour was in monster SUVs with special tires which could go on any terrain - which we did. I won't spoil the surprises. Great guides! Another community wide event was going on the second day and we fully immersed and had a great time!

Iceland is beautiful. This was where our cruise started and we went in 2 days early. We went to the Blue Lagoon just after we landed (we had booked it ahead along with the bus into Reykjavik. We stayed 3 hours and it was so relaxing! We also booked the Golden Circle Tour through GeoTours and it was incredible. Small group of 10, stopped and petted the horses, saw the Geyser, several beautiful waterfalls. The whole tour was about 8 hours. Iceland has terrific cell coverage, you rarely go below 3 bars.

Iceland was as amazing as I had imagined and heard, and after a long time wanting to go, it was a great taste of the country. We rented a car for both days, so first day was the golden circle, and out to Geysir and Gollfoss. The weather was wild, and I'm fine with that, it added to the Iceland experience. Wind, driving rain, sleet, hail, snow, sun, all in the course of 6 hours. Coming back on the 1 over the mountains into Reykjavik the snow plows were out. It was a very full day, but so memorable, and stunning! The second day, we woke at 5 and got on the road out to Vik, 116 miles east of Reykjavik. We were greeted with an amazing sunrise, dramatic clouds that burned off by 7 am and once in Vik, the air was still, not a breath of wind, dry and warm. WE parked up in the Church lot that overlooks the town of Vik and just took it in for a while before heading to Reynisfjara Beach. Once at the beach, we were kind of surprised with the amount of people already there for the hour, but still had a blast and loved the otherworldly surroundings. I've lived on O'ahu, and am from Bermuda, and have seen my share of beautiful beaches, and this one was in the tops for sure. Amazingly beautiful, but in a completely different way. We made our trip back to Reykjavik an extended 6-hour tour, hitting many places along the way, some well-known, others, well off the beaten path. Again, another full day, but with the next 2 days being sea days, there was plenty of time for r & r. We got a great taste of Iceland and have it on the list for more immediate travel. I can't wait to get back and see more of that amazing island!
