Planning a Trip to Iceland in October

Iceland in October

We got to spend two nights in Reyk­javik, Ice­land in Octo­ber last year on our way back from Scot­land. All the time I was there, I was wish­ing I had been some­where out­side the city, sur­round­ed by the out-of-this-world nat­u­ral land­scape that Ice­land is famous for. Noth­ing again­st Reyk­javik, mind you. It’s actu­al­ly one of my favourite cities in the world, if not THE most favourite. I just like nature more. I tried to talk the hus­band into rent­ing a car for a day but he was set on spend­ing the whole stopover in Reyk­javik. Oh well. Can’t say I didn’t try.

We have done a road trip around Ice­land before in May 2013. It was the best trip ever, and the best two weeks I’ve ever spent trav­el­ling. We’d been dream­ing of doing anoth­er Ice­land road trip ever since we got back from that trip. Unfor­tu­nate­ly, in the years that fol­lowed, the Cana­di­an dol­lar only got con­sid­er­ably weak­er and the Ice­landic kro­na stronger. We’d had accept­ed the fact that we would have to save up for a lit­tle bit longer to be able to afford anoth­er trip around Ice­land.
