Iceland trip – the natural reserve

­Iceland is one of the beautiful place in the would , and only country free from pollution .

Day 1

Weatherin Iceland simply crazy , 5 minute rain, 10 minute snow and 15 minute later u will have a sunny sky .. just like woman temper !!!

You need to self drive, but the driver sit at left side, which difference from a Singapore. Car Rental not exactly expensive , oil price similiar in singapore, no toll fee , but they one sea underground need to pay some fee.

you need to selfdrive at Iceland, is playful but a little bit adventurous. You need to buy not just insurance but also Ash protection. We rent 1 GPS and I we use another for Goggle map to Synconize for the road. Road 1 driving speed will be 90/hr, but we only can drive 20-30km/ hr. Due to no familiar with road, and we can’t see when snowing.

Tip:-
Car rental App- Green Motion the price are lower
I paid SGD427 for insurance , ash protection and GPS for Hundai I30. ( MEDIUM RANGE )

remember to check weather forecast, will help u in driving .

The bridge with one way only, you may take turn to pass the bridge.

Remember to check Hotel / Air bnb for parking.

Bring your swimming suite, you may want to go world famous blue lagoon

Chang some Euro and USD before you go

 

 

You May book your Activities in Tourist Information

add: Visit Reykjavík, Adalstraeti 2, 101 Reykjavík, Tel: +(354) 590 1500

Iceland tour :-

 Northern light tour, friendly speaking not recomanded due to money wasted.
I think you can :-
1)Self Drive hunt light yourself
2) stay at hotel easy to meet the light
3)watch the light via spa (Secrect lagoon, Largarvatn Fontana)
Golden Circle Tour Isk8900-11000 I will suggest you self drive and same day with black sand beach.
Please refer my prefect itinerary for golden circle tour and black sand beach.
I choose whale watching tour @ ISK 8900
Go into Glacier will be the most fun tour, hence highly recommended but you need to depend weather, they will cancel trip in last minute.

4 wheel drive will be better choice, but if you just want to use Road no 1, normal car will do. for safety reason, please install 11-2-App, Ice-SAR in your mobile phone. this is because Iceland have few people, anything happen may no one can help you.

 

I am sharing my Itinerary now :-
Day 1 -after booked package and we did shopping at Kinglan Shoping mall, this is because I forget to bring swimming suite
we brought sushi at super market @ Kinglan mall and ice-cream to completed my diner.
Reykjavik afternoon lake view. the sky look grey actually. majority of lake cover by ice, the swam and duck had small place to play around.

Iceland is an amazing country filled with beautiful nature

Hallgrinskirkja is Iconic building in Reykavik, not to be missed, the entry it’s free but it’s really worth paring 600isk for the ticket to the tower to have the best 360 degrees view of the city. the statue in front of main door  is father of Iceland -Leifur Eiriksson

Day 2
we travelled from Reykjavik to Vik
please take note this, itinerary, I found this was the best one when you start your trip
Pingvellir–> Geysir–>Gullfoss–> Seljalandsfoss–> Skigafloss–> Reynisfjara – Black Sand Beach–>Vik

You can see a lot of Viking house along the way, we stop and took picture with them.

Pingvellr (Thingvellir) national park -.the only place on earth where you can stand on the Atlantic Ridge, the rift between Europe and N America where the tectonic plates meet. You can walk the rift. The wild scenery is spectacular. Nearby are geysers and other beautiful sites.
Thingvillir was our first stop and it is lovely to behold. You can also see the spot of the first known democratic parliament proudly flying the Icelandic flag and a lovely waterfall with some dark history. Be aware there is a good deal of walking here up and down steep hillsides, but it’s well worth it. There is no entrance fee.i paid 2 euro to use the bathroom. the basin area with full window, is a expensive but nice toilet
Geysir  – the Strokkur Geyser is the only geyser which erupts on a regular basis (about every 6-10min).
If you’re continuing along the Golden Circle, the restrooms at the Geyser are free, but the drive is about an hour. There is a small gift shop/snack shop here too that sells many of the same items that the Geyser and Gullfoss shops carry as well.
Gullfoss- waterfall
The part of the National Park that is Gullfosskaffi or part of Gullfoss was absolutely the most breathtaking natural feature that I saw. The water was coming out between the lava cracks horizontally not vertically as usual. This was spectacular.

Seljalandsfoss- waterfall

Skigafloss – waterfall
Reynisfjara – Black Sand Beach
Reynisfjara beach is a beautiful black sand beach under Reynisfjall mountain with amazing basalt columns.
Despite the natural beauty, Reynisfjara can be dangerous. The water is extremely cold, the waves are unpredictable, and the rip currents are strong, so don’t go near the water.

2 wks ago 2  people have died by getting too close to the water. When we visited, the tide was out so it was possible to walk all the way down the beach. If the tide is in, it will not be possible to go very far on the beach. When the tide comes in, it is possible to become trapped in the caves. Our tour guide also warned us that falling rocks are a hazard, particularly in the caves, so don’t stop an have a picnic under there. But despite these hazards, it is definitely a spot worth visiting. Just visit when the tide is out and stay a safe distance from both the mountain and the sea

Vick Town –> search for dinner
Suour Vik
Suourvikurvegur 1,Vik 870

Asparagus Soup in green colour, special and nice

Day 3 -whale watching and Blue lagoon
Harpa Concert and Conference Center -The building features a distinctive colored glass facade inspired by the basalt landscape of Iceland.
 Fish market

Whale watching boat trip -Elding

 we only saw minke whales, small in size.  I thought we will see blue whales.. but they told me almost impossible. if you see humpback you already lucky enough !!
Blue Lagoon is a must !!
In a magnificent black lave field, the milky-teal blue lagoon spa is fed water from the futuristic svartsengri geothermal plant.
Crowded but word to go, one of the best geothermal bath in the world
tip: pre -booking is essential. please book as early as possible.  
We saw Northern light at the car park, and we took out our camera and shoot, we have a lot of company. they all slowed down their foot to home.
we watch light together.
we spend 45minute to watch this, at the end we reach Reykjavik at 10pm, when most of the restaurant had closed.
we went to Hagkaup ( the only 24hrs hyper market in Iceland )
https://www.hagkaup.is/
Day 4 – Get intoGacier 
The Laundromat Café -one of the best breakfast in Reykjavik
Austurstræti 9 9, 101 Reykjavík, Iceland
I ordered Dirty Breakfast …musli yogurt- taste really good!
Husefell, Get intoGacier
 only this type of truck can enter to Glacier
Barnafoss-very famous with legend /myth

Barnafoss  blue water flows from glaciers in the area. There is myth of two boys who were alone at night and thought they saw a ghost. They fled their house and tried to cross the falls on a narrow ridge, seeking their parents on the other side. The ridge collapsed and they drowned in the torrents. This fall is called the Children’s Waterfall.

The Setlement center restaurant – Borganes
i ordered Ling as main course, that was Chef of today. delicious and tasty !!
Lobster pasta -i think Ling was better choice
 Bread and the bread spread was very good.
Settlement centre is a small but interesting museum, i enjoyed to chit chat with the lady at here, told us the some story,
she even helped us to check the forecast.
the older lava in Iceland.
Day 5 Bye bye Iceland
 The best Coffee in Iceland
Reykjavik Roasters
Brautarholt, Reykjavík, Iceland
not just coffee the bakery very good also.
Day 6 A short stop Over at Oslo and back to Singapore
 we only have time went for Vigeland park
