Have just returned from a trip to Iceland using 4 different hotels over 8 nights. Fosshotel Reykholt was the best. Big rooms, helpful staff, nice facilities. The location sounded isolated and looked like a bad choice but the best part was the view of Northern Lights from your hotel room window.
They had a "Northern Lights Night Watchman" who would wake you up as and when he notices the lights. That service was commendable and was so helpful. I would rate this place as a best location to view the lights.
There is a small hill across the road, about 100 mts away, where it is pitch dark to enjoy the beauty of the dancing and dazzling show. I personally waited on top of the hill for about 3 hours and viewed the spectacle for almost 2.5 hours. This is something I will never forget in my lifetime.
Iceland is the best place to see the lights and Reykholt the best bet.
Expensive is the word for all Nordic nations and Iceland is no exception but it is worth every penny you spend. It has everything that one can imagine to see - Sun, Rain, Clouds, Sand Storms, Snow Storms, Icebergs, Frozen lakes, Waterfalls, Glacier walks and to top them all, beautiful Volcanic mountains,
Just go! It's now or never in the life :-).
