    One of the best guesthouses

    by

    The rate at tripadvisor is number 1 or 2 and I agree.The best:Breakfast,quiet street,very good situated because is only 5 min.walking from the main street and 5 min.walking to BSI,the bus station.This means that you don't need a bus or a taxi.And if you have booked the tours at Reykjavik Excursions is possible to have breakfast at 7,30 and go on time for the tours at 8,30.
    If you have trouble to sleep with light bring a sleeping mask in summer.
    No TV set at room but there is washbasin what is more interesting

Short break to Reyjavik

by ClareyD

"Introduction"

Iceland is listed as one of my favourite destinations to date. I took a four night trip on Iceland Express to Reykjavik staying at the Baldursbra guesthouse which was very reasonable in price and a nice place to stay.

"Day 1 - Golden Circle"

After much debate we decided on the first day to do a tour of the area known as the Golden Circle which consisted of visiting Thingvellir National Park and seeing the ridge between the Eurasian and American Tectonic plates, Geysir & Strokkur (geysers) and Gulfoss (a beautiful waterfall). We also passed a Volcanic Crater called Kerio which was equally just as interesting as the main attractions. My recommendation is to start early in the morning so that you can beat the tour buses before they start flooding in and disturb the tranquility of the experience.

"Day 1 - Golden Circle"

After Thingvellir National Park we went onto Geysir. The great Geysir is the bigger of the two geysers in the area however now only erupts two or three times a day sending water. Geysir is also the home to Strokkur, which much more reliably erupts every seven minutes or so. You usually can tell when it is about to erupt when the geysers starts to dome at the surface. The whole area is full of bubbling mud pots and steam vents and is well worth the visit.

First visit to Iceland!!

by Petulia86

Hi Guys,
Myself and three of my friends are heading to reykjavik on the 14th of October for 4 nights, this our first time ever visiting Iceland and we are hoping for some suggestions on tours etc. We have only booked our flights at the moment and have nothing else booked.Can anyone tell me what baldursbra guesthouse is like as this is where we are thinking about booking? We are thinking about renting a car for a few days or maybe even for the full length we are there and finding our own way around. Can anyone direct us towards cheap (I realise thats not easy to find in Iceland!!) car rental and tours as we would like to see as much as possible in the short time but on as little money as possible. Also, the Iceland Airwaves festival takes place during our visit and I was wondering if this is worth going to? Sorry I know theres a lot of questions in this.
Thanks in advance for all your help!

I haven't stayed at Baldursbra but they have good location, imo. Try looking for reviews in Tripadvisor.

I would certainly suggest that you do the Golden Circle (Thingvellir, Gullfoss and Geysir geothermal area), which would take most of a day. A few hours at the Blue Lagoon on the way to or from the airport would be another few hours.

With only four nights, you are unlikely to get too far out of Reykjavik. I understand that the amphibians stop running tours of Jokulsarlon and the glacier walks are over by then too. Some of the scenery (waterfalls) in the south, the Reykanes area, etc. would all be worth doing. If you want to stay "cheap", rent a normal, rather than 4x4 car. You won't be able to get onto any of the "F" roads, but staying on the ring road will get you to see plenty of places.
