    Want to visit Iceland hopefully catch the Northern lights do the Blue Lagoon in early
    December but its canny expensive for a long weekend.
    Looks like flights from Manchester airport are quickest.

    No such thing as cheap for Iceland mate. Flights are reasonable mind, I went on Wow Air from Edinburgh. Everything else is expensive. I would say unless you’ve got the coin to enjoy it and not worth about the money, or you’ve researched how to be thrifty to the far end of a fart (ie more than asking on the SMB) then don’t bother as you won’t enjoy trying to penny pinch there.

    Thought this thread was going to be about Iceland selling cocktails cheap. Disappointed.

    I didnt think it was that expensive at all. Eat and drink in any big city and youll be paying upwards of a fiver a pint and £10-15 for something to eat.

    Spent 12 days driving round the ring road with family. Bonus supermarket and air bnb is the way to go. Buy your booze at the airport ( the Viking Coffee Stout is superb).
  8. I did it 2008 when their currency collapsed. It was only around £3 a pint.

  10. As hells says a package with Iceland air is probably yer best bet, everything is expensive, £3 for a mars bar, £7 for a pint, £18 for a pizza.
    Lush country tho, once to woo the girlfriend, then again with her for football as the missus.
    Remortgage yer house if you want to get blootered

    Mrs (no) was pregnant when we went back in March so couldn't go to the Blue Lagoon :(
    We booked onto a bus tour to see the Northern Lights that take you north to a national park.....however it got cancelled on the morning due to bad weather!
    Never got to see/do the two main attractions when we went :lol:. However we did hire a car and spent the 4 days just driving, such a beautiful country!

    Quite a micro point but there's a place in Reykjavik that does a massive bowl of soup in a hollowed out bread for a tenner.

    Same. There was also some random Vietnamese place up near the church that did pho type soup for buttons. I like soup when it's cold
