Iceland is unique. It has thermal hot springs, fantastic wildlife, glaciers, whales, long fjords, fishing villages, a bustling capital and a vast, unspoiled interior.
We absolutely loved our stay at this cabin in the middle of the Golden Triangle. A fab place to explore Iceland from and the hot tub a huge bonus. Emma 2020-02-29T00:00:00Z; We had a great stay here, great location for exploring the golden circle and very quiet and peaceful. The hot tub was an added bonus! Sarah 2020-02-26T00:00:00Z.
There were other happy hours in that early evening, but they were just a discount of 100 or 200 krona instead of the 2-for-1 at the sports bar. Those prices are all pretty high for the Icelandic people as well, so it’s common to buy retail and get started at home (or in a hotel). You have to plan early for that because they only sell alcohol at the state-run stores, which have pretty short.
The hike takes around 2 hours and is a beautiful one around a canyon with a waterfall (Glymur). You can take the circle clockwise or anti-clockwise. The scenery is better anti-clockwise. Then it is best to first cross the river (you walk on a log of wood with a rope) and follow the path to the top. Right above the waterfall where the river runs the broadest you have to cross to get down again.

The months with the fewest hours of daylight are December and January but this gives you longer in darkness to hunt for the lights. 3. Check the Forecast. Keep a close eye on the northern lights forecast. You need to look for white or light green.
A good thing to keep in mind is the price difference in stores, the smaller supermarkets with longer opening hours (like the 10-11 stores, open 24 hours a day, the most visited by tourists that afterwards complain how expensive Iceland is) will typically be between a third to three times more expensive than the low-price stores such as Bonus, Kronan or Netto.
The restaurant is open between 12:00 and 16:00 daily and reservations are recommended, especially during lunch hours. Ice cream at Efstidalur farm Efstidalur is a dairy farm not far from Laugarvatn and in the middle of the Golden Circle area.

There is a Bonus and a Hagkaup next to the gas station on the road from Keflavik to Reykjavik.Unfortunately they open after 10.00. There is also a Samkaup near the Nr 1 gas station by the sea. I do not see how can you avoid driving through Reykjavik.
