Booked a 3 night trip with Icelandair for just £200 per person, from Manchester UK. It had snowed when we arrived, but unlike in the UK, they seemed to be coping pretty well with it.
The flight was about 2hours 15 mins and transfers took us direct to the hotel. As stated in other reviews, the rooms are smallish, but comfortable, clean and great for the price (You are in one of the most expensive places on Earth here folks)
Our view over the harbour was fantastic, and we had no problems whatsoever with the hotel or its location, which is close to town centre. The buffet breakfast is ample, and for about £9 you get an all you can eat hot / cold buffet in the evening, which was great.
You can organise your trips at the hotel directly and you must do the Golden Circle (about £45pp) This takes you to the main tourist areas and you get a glimpse of the beautiful landscape of this breathtaking country. You see the gulfoss waterfall, Geysir, the national park, geothermal plant and churches.
Some people went on the Northern lights trip and the lights were seen in the far distance. The quality depends a little on luck.
Rejkjavic is a quaint City and can easily be seen on foot, there are advised walks in the brochures in the hotel. It is very expensive but apart from a £6 pint, my shopping was purely of the window type!
On our way home we opted for the Blue lagoon trip prior to flight and enjoyed a fantastic 3/4 hour soak in that amazing place, whilst the temp outside was -7. I would advise anyone to do it this way. All in all a great value trip all in, I have been wanting to go to iceland for years, and its only recently (credit crunch) , that the prices have been this cheap - so go now. Prices in 2007 £550 for same break!!!!!
