Despite not seeing what we went for we loved our short break in Reykjavik. We flew out on WOW airlines which proved to be a most enjoyable experience the sense of humour and efficiency of the crew puts the bigger airlines to shame. We stayed at the Reykjavik Lights Hotel which at first we thought was a bit too far out of town but it wasn't. This appeared to be a new hotel very modern and comfortable we were lucky to have a room looking out over the bay which was stunning. Breakfast was good the staff friendly and helpful.
The pre-arranged trips to see the Northern Lights and Whale watching were all very efficient, I felt sorry for the staff having to try to make it more exciting than it was especially for the Lights as they knew before we set out that it was highly unlikely that we would see any but they did their best to keep us interested and tried different sites.
We loved Iceland and would like to return perhaps in the summer. Eating out was not cheap but no more expensive than most European Capital Cities if you are a drinker you won't be able to afford to get drunk! You don't need to change money to local currency as they take credit card everywhere even for small purchases.
Our trip was arranged by Fleetway Travel who provided a good service at a reasonable price.
Highly recommend it.
