|Got our FlyBus Tix! (ISK 2800) Direct to Hotel!|
We arrived in Keflavik International Airport (KEF) about an hour from the capital, Reykjavik. Access to the city is easy with the 24hours FlyBus service. With direct to hotel drop/pickup. Very convenient. Fyi, is not advisable to get Icelandic Krona (ISK, local currency) as i believed not many money exchange shops have them. You will have difficult time trying to change back the ISK if you have balance after your trip. Rest assured that in Iceland, everywhere accepts credit cards. Even at smaller cities are the same.
Icelandair Hotel Reykjavik Natura (ISK 16,545/night), Nautholsvegur 52, 101 Reykjavik, Iceland. Featuring standard accommodations with a choice of one double bed or two twin beds (based on availability), TV, sitting areas, safe and toiletries. Having a bus stop directly outside, even providing free bus pass for your easy travel around Reykjavik City. Highly recommended.
On our first day we will be checking out the Reykjavik City. The city will be a little quiet due to Winter Season and was dizzling. But no rain will stop us!
Iceland is the most sparsely populated country in Europe. Towns are pretty small but colourful and modern. Nice to walk around as the place is small, everywhere is close by. Famous for whale watching (we skipped this) where you can buy the whale watching tours at the old habour at city center.
The Harpa Concert Hall
One beautiful building along the seashore. Where major music events and conference are held in the city.
The Hallgrimskirkja Church
One of Reykjavik main landmark and its beautiful chuch tower can be seen from almost anywhere in the city center.
Another lovely travel day. We were supposed to have the Northen Light Excursion tonight but the weather was bad. Therefore, in Iceland, if the experts are unable to predict that there will be an Northern Light happening, all excursion will be kept on hold or cancelled.
The next day we will be having a full day excursion of The Golden Circle / Thingvellir National Park.
Iceland Day 1... End...
