Tips on this trip: --Accessibility: There are a lot of stairs to get in restaurants, etc. and our motor coach had extremely steep and narrow steps. If you have bad knees that will be very hard to navigate Iceland. It is not that accessible overall. Bring a walking stick. --hotels: if you are single I would NOT share a room the beds and bathrooms are TINY in all the hotels. --Water: it's pure and piped straight from the ground delicious, bring your reusable water bottle and fill up right from the cold water tap! It's the hot water that can smell a bit of sulfur but not the cold water. --Food: a LOT OF LAMB and FISH. Lamb is the national meat and sheep are everywhere! Still it got a bit old not having a lot of variety. --Boat rides: the best part! Try the raw scallops straight from the ocean, so delicious! --Free time: not a lot of it. If you want to go horseback ride or swimming those two options would be great! The pool in Akureyri was fantastic! I wished I had time to do the horseback riding but not enough free time. Plan ahead. The swimming pools in Iceland are all heated and have hot tubs/saunas and are places to meet the locals. --Bring binoculars for bird watching! It's not on the list and there were some times it would have been nice to have a pair.
