I'm in the forties, have a 16 year old daughter, she lives in Kopavogur which is the next town 10 kilometers from here. I'm easy going, have traveled a lot to 60 countries, most recently two trips to Indonesia and Bali.

Also to all places / towns in Iceland, know them all!

I'm an Economist by education, and work among else in tourism & consultancy, and as a restaurant and travel writer. And published the Visitor's Guide travel book in Iceland for 15 years, but sold the Icelandic part some few years back.

So you would say I have quite a good background to give people advice concerning traveling in Iceland. Our company also works for many restaurants so I know them all in Reykjavik, as well as many travel and tour companies. I have a website with most restaurants in Iceland see (Hidden by Airbnb) - (Website hidden by Airbnb)

I like to have a nice and cosy home, with a mixture of new and old things. Have many friends a and good network as you could say.

Some things I couldn't bee without in Iceland is a) our great water from the tabs (free),
b) the thermal swimming pools (8 $), c) my lovely daughter d) and the space and the nature, which gives you a good energy.

PRACTICAL INFORMATION

NB. Some advice and directions
When in Reykjavik ask at some hotels for the Visitors Guide book lot of info about Reykjavik and Iceland
nb no publication (Phone number hidden by Airbnb) and (Phone number hidden by Airbnb) I give a free copy to my guests. It has also DISCOUNT coupons, articles, and all the necessary information for your stay. Also a good Map of Iceland and Reykjavik. Otherwise should get it a the fly-bus main terminal.

GENERAL TOURIST INFORMATION SEE (Website hidden by Airbnb) & (Website hidden by Airbnb)
Sorry I don't have time to answer general tourist information .....

TOURS
My company works in tourism, consultancy and publication

In some cases my coworker or even me could take people on a private, Grand Golden Circle Tour (9 h.)- not only visiting the tourist sites! We have a nice jeep and license to take passengers. The cost for that is around (Phone number hidden by Airbnb) dollars for a full day which is approx our cost price for car and an employee. It would be divided then between 2-4 passengers.

ADVICE
i) If you are thinking of going to the Blue Lagoon it is best/ most economical to visit it when leaving the country i.e. take the fly bus back via Blue Lagoon, this is though only valid if you are leaving in the afternoon. Or when you are arriving if you arrive in the morning, i.e. go to Reykjavik via Blue Lagoon (if you are not to tired).

ii) No need to buy any tickets in advance for sightseeing etc, especially NOT in the autumn/ spring / winter - off season. As I am working in tourism we can sometimes get some tickets at lower price, especially for horse back riding, glacier walk and maybe whale watching. Whale watching is almost downtown so don't buy it with pickup. Don't generally recommend it though in Reykjavik.

iii) I always recommend the thermal swimming pools for everyone to try, the price is only 8 Dollars about 8 times less than the Blue Lagoon!. They are warm and nice and a very cultural thing for Icelanders.

iv) Don't buy water it is the same as the tab water!
Bonus is the lowest price supermarkets and then Kronan, the price I guess 40% less than in the more tourist-supermarkets like ten and eleven

v) Reykjavik Welcome Card is a good way to explore the city, with free entrance to swimming pools, the city buses, museums and more. The price for a 1,2 or 3 day card is low (info about that in your room).

vi) The fly bus stops at a nearby GRAND HOTEL, which is 3 minutes walk from my home.

vii) Hitchhiking in Iceland is rather easy, easier though for women and those who have little luggage.

ACCOMMODATION:
Here are some general recommendation for accommodation in the countryside.

Akureyri in the NORTH:
- Gula Villan - Charming old house in the center.
- Hrafninn Guesthouse, more modern in the same street.

SOUTH
- Hótel Örk, Hveragerði, (45 km from Reykjavik), often good offers in spring and autumn - good value for money.

-Hostel/ Guesthouse Selfoss.
- Hotel Lava, 5 km. from Kirkjubæjarklaustur, very good option in the off season, great value for money.

- All over the countryside farmers holiday/ accommodation, they have a brochure with all the farms listed.
- Also good guesthouses and youth hostels.

TOURS AND ACTIVITIES:
Nb. Usually it is better to call the companies directly. When you book through so-called tourist agencies/ information the tour operator has to pay commission! So better just to call the companies or book through their sites,directly and get the pickup at the nearest hotel/guesthouse. Some few have a discount coupon in our Visitor's Guide book.

Horseback riding (all have pickup at your accommodation):
- The Icelandic Horse, the only horse rental in Reykjavik, rather small but a good and personal service. Speak many languages and the area and surrounding is very beautiful. They have a very good reviews on trip Advisor.

- Eldhestar in Hveragerdi, Situated close to a small village 45 min from Reykjavik in the south. It is a good choice for those who want to go outside of the city and see some of the countryside. They have among else good trips where you can bath in natural hot springs and some other sightseeing activities.

Glacier walk:
At Sólheimajökull arr. 200 km from Reykjavik towards east, on the way to Jökulsárlón. Something many tourists like, through our company can often get it like 30% cheaper.

GENERAL TOURIST INFORMATION:
For general information and inquiries see the official ones for Iceland and Reykjavík.

ASK FOR THE YELLOW VISITORS GUIDE BOOK AT THE MAIN BUS TERMINAL (exl. '20 and '21)

DON'T MISS THE COUPONS IN IT WHICH GIVES YOU DISCOUNTS, AMONG ELSE FOR TOURS AND RESTAURANTS.

DON'T MISS THE THERMAL SWIMMING POOLS WHEN IN ICELAND - A VERY LOCAL THING AND COSTS 10 TIMES LESS THAN THE BLUE LAGOON!

Welcome to Reykjavik and Iceland, hope you have a good time :)

Í dvölinni

Quite much usually ... as much as they want.
I am friendly and open minded. Like to have meals with them if both of us are home :). Give you a lift if I am driving towards your destination which is common.

Occasionally I'm going to the countryside for some semi business tour - can then sometimes take a passenger = maybe possible for you to join at a very good price, so a part of your holiday might be that way, traveling with a local.
