[Trip] Iceland – The classic “Golden Circle”

As the places we covered is quite a long list, I will not put them up in an individual post. It will be based on our Itinerary, and places we covered on that day. A little introduction of my tour, we booked our local guided tour online a few months before we depart for Iceland. Initially, we tried to join another tour agency but in the end, the tour date was cancelled, and we found this local tour company on TripAdvisor instead. The tour covered most of the place we wanted to go and most importantly, it includes Northern-light hunt.

For more information, you could refer to their official website.

[Stay] Iceland, Reykjavik – Icelandair Hotel Reykjavik Natura

Our 6 days 5 nights tour package, includes accommodation and daily breakfast.  This is the appointed hotel by our agency, which we will be staying in on our first and last day of our tour. The Icelandair Hotel Reykjavik Natura

A little introduction of the Icelandair Hotel Reykjavik Natura, as you can see from its name it is one of the Icelandair group which consist of the Iceland Air, Iceland travel and more.  This is one of the largest hotel chains in Iceland, you will be seeing more of its hotel in the following posts as out of our 5 night in Iceland, we are staying 4 nights at their chain hotels.

As for the location, it’s not convenient if you were to compare with our previous stay at the Reykjavik Residences Suite. However, one good thing is that they provide you with a free bus pass so that you could hop on and off their city bus to explore Reykjavik.

[Play] Iceland- One Day Adventure in Reykjavik

When you see the word adventure, what would you think of? Bungee Jumping, Skydiving, rock climbing etc…

For us we wanted to do something different from other places that we went before, so what kind of adventure should we do? We got a long list in mind but we only have 2 free days. And to accommodate my traveling kaki (partner), she is not into thrilling activities, so NO bungee jump, skydiving, mountain climbing uh-uh (too tiring).  We are left with 4 choices, whale watching(Pass), Glacier hike (Pass),  Riding a horse (Yes) and Helicopter ride (Yes).

Obviously, there are lots of activities to do in Iceland but that is our final choice. And I am totally excited about it~!~!

[Stay] Iceland -Reykjavik Residence Suites

The apartment that we stayed for 2 days before we head off to meet our tour group. Beautiful little residence suite, with a convenient location. There are other options like hotel or Airbnb around Reykjavik, if you look around and compare actually their rates are almost the same, so now it depends on which looks more appealing to you.  It might be because there was only 2 of us and a group of 4 would get a cheaper rate?

We were looking at the reviews, photos of the room etc and this caught our eyes.

[Fly] Wow Airline Amsterdam to Iceland Reykjavik

Before heading off to Iceland Reykjavik, we had a stopover at Schiphol International Airport in Amsterdam for around 4 hours before check-in.

We have chosen Wow Airline for our departure from Amsterdam because of its low cost and timing. In this post, I have also put down some of the things to note if you are going on a budget airline in Europe.
