MY RECENT TRIPS

My recent Iceland Experience exceeded my expectations!Iceland Rekjavikurtjorn Reykjavik

I worked with a Signature Travel Network Specialist called Iceland Travel. Their escorted group size is usually 10+ passengers, but we can also do a private tour for 1-10 guests. And for the adventurous they also have a luxury product called Nine Worlds that includes private jets, helicopters, meet & greet, gifts, etc.  The Icelandair Hotel Reykjavik Natura was my hotel which is located about 10 minutes from the city center. The onsite restaurant, Satt, has an excellent breakfast buffet (included in rates with Iceland Travel). With only 220 rooms the property is very nice with great views. Outside of Reykjavik in the summer there is limited availability for hotels - book early!

The Golden Circle Tour is a 'must do.' This is the most popular tour from Reykjavik and you can do add-ons to a spa, tomato greenhouse, etc. The basic includes Geysir, Gullfoss Falls, and Thingvellir National Park. This tour does have a lot of walking and was about eight hours.  We also went out to Reykjanes Peninsula where I saw The Blue Lagoon (a must for any traveler wanting to get in the hot springs) as well as the Brimketill Lava Pools, and the bridge between two continents-where the North American Plate and the Eurasian Plate meet. Don’t miss the large Lutheran Church, Hallgrimskirkja, in town.
Some tips:

*No mosquitos in Iceland
*90% of the whale watching is up north
*24 hours of effective daylight starting the end of April
*There are over 65 golf courses in Iceland and “Midnight Golf” is very popular.
*Outside of Reykjavik in the summer amounts has limited availability for hotels-book early.
*For self-drives, you now receive a tablet when you pick up car. You type in your booking number and it gives you a step by step itinerary and restaurants and sights to see along your way.
*Northern Lights is best to see around a new moon from September to March.

I love Iceland! The people are incredible and there is so much to see.
