I'm headed to Iceland in May and am wondering if anyone can give me any tips on places to visit, things to see and do, night life, etc. I'm up for some hiking and would love to take in some scenery while there.
One of the quintessential tours is the Golden Circle, encompassing three main sights close to Reykjavik: Gulfoss (Golden Waterfall), geysers, and Pingvellir National Park. You can drive it, but if you get a good guide it's much more informative. Http://icelandhorizon.is was the highlight of my trip. I could have written a short book from the things I learned, and the guide is warm. over 8 years ago
