Let me tell you more…
Hotel Reykjavik Centrum
Due to a wonderful location in the very heart of the city, the comfortable Hotel Reykjavik Centrum guests will find Adalstraeti nearby. The 4-star hotel comprises 89 rooms and amenities like a storage for belongings and a shop.
The property is set in Reykjavik 101 district, within 1.2 km of Vesturbaejarlaug Swimming Pool and about 14 minutes on foot from the Lutheran Hallgrimskirkja Parish Church. You can get to the centre of Reykjavik in about 5 minutes’ walk. A few metres away you can find Reykjavik Art Museum Hafnarhus.
Hotel Geysir is family-run hotel on doorstop of the geothermal area in the historic Haukadalur valley and it opened 1st August 2019. The new building connects the existing services in the area and is designed with the aim to reflect nature through the choice of materials blending into the nearest surroundings. Hotel Geysir has 77 rooms and 6 suites.
Located in the South Iceland and near Fjaðrárglúfur canyon, Hótel Klaustur is a modern hotel featuring 56 rooms and a historic Erró Suite. Kirkjubaejarklaustur, or “Klaustur” as it is usually referred to by locals, is a small town in the south of Iceland and is home to about 120 people. The town is located on road no. 1, also known as the Ring Road, and it is the only place between Vík in Mýrdal and Höfn that offers services. Those services include a fuel station, a bank, a post office and a supermarket.
Stracta Hotel is located on the south coast of Iceland. We invite travelers to enjoy the comfortable atmosphere and delightful experience of our hotel. We wish to provide a smooth and welcoming overall visitor experience. Our guests and their needs are our first priority. All our guests are welcome to use the hotel saunas and hot tubs, located in the hotel garden.
Stracta Hotel is strategically located in the South of Iceland, on the outskirts of the town of Hella. The hotel is just about an hour and a half drive from Reykjavík city and in close proximity to some of Iceland’s most famous and most frequently visited natural phenomena. Nature in all its splendor surrounds the hotel and the area is etched in history and culture, too.
The cuisine of Iceland has a long history. Important parts of Icelandic cuisine are lamb, dairy, and fish, the latter due to the fact that Iceland has traditionally been inhabited only near its coastline.
Popular foods in Iceland include skyr, hangikjöt, kleinur, laufabrauð, and bollur. We will explore and savor the amazing tastes of Iceland!
Combining natural and historical wonders, you’ll experience Iceland‘s landmark attractions in one incredible day: the magnificent Gullfoss waterfall, the spouting hot springs of Geysir, and Þingvellir national park, site of the Viking parliament and over 1000 years of history.
Drive past the Presidential residence of Bessastaðir and to the town of Hafnarfjörður. Take a coastal road to Lake Kleifarvatn, set in fascinating, stark, moon-like surroundings. This was the site of a famous Icelandic suspense novel by Arnaldur Indriðason.
Near the lake’s southern end lies Krísuvík with powerful jets of sulphurous steam escaping from deep below the earth’s crust. Here you can view numerous small hot springs, mud pots, boiling pools and other types of geothermal activity.
From Reykjavík via Borgarfjörður to Snæfellsnes peninsula and Snæfellsjökull National Park. Continue on to the romantic little fishing villages of Arnarstapi and Hellnar, both famous for their rock formations in the shapes of arches, caves, sea stacks and cliffs alive with huge colonies of birds.
Continue your journey around Snæfellsnesjökull glacier, through the small fishing villages on the northern shores of the peninsula.
A visit to the Blue Lagoon promotes harmony between body, mind and spirit, enabling bathers to soak away life’s daily stresses. The modern facilities have been developed into a wellness complex including saunas, a warm flowing waterfall, and in-water treatments and massages using the all-natural Blue Lagoon skin care products.
The Sky Lagoon – a thermal spa inspired by nature & culture.
Immerse yourself in warmth at our oceanside geothermal lagoon, as the dramatic North Atlantic Ocean stretches out before you. Feel yourself relax and unwind as you take in the dazzling sunsets and moody skies and, if you’re lucky, the dancing Northern Lights will put on a stunning show. Then, take your relaxation deeper with the Ritual, a unique seven-step experience.
Why Iceland, because the landscape is nothing short of mystical. The scenary promises an endless series of snow-covered volcanoes, mountains and ice fields. With a rugged, “other-worldly” terrain, the Nordic icy views are like nothing you’ll see in the rest of the world.
Language: The main language spoken is Icelandic, as well as English in the touristy areas.
Currency: The currency in Iceland is the Icelandic króna, but many places will also accept the Euro and the US Dollar. 1 USD is equivalent to about 119,60 ISK.
Credit Cards and ATMs: Icelanders tend to pay for almost everything with credit or debit card, so you don’t need to worry about carrying too much cash around with you. However, you’ll need a card that uses the chip and pin method.
Plugs: The plugs in Iceland are Type F. The standard voltage is 230 V, and the standard frequency is 50Hz. I recommend buying a universal adapter (make sure it has surge protection) and using a converter for hair dryers and hot tools.
Safety: In my opinion, Iceland is one of the best destinations for solo female travelers! It’s safe to walk around by yourself, and crime levels are super low.
