Oh I really want to go, especially with the LGW flight meaning no connections. Just about missing two days of college it looks unlikely Sad And it would be a DOC! Ohhhh

I'm still thinking of comming to this one, tagging it on to a longer trip around Iceland. Just thought I'd mention this again; is anyone else thinking of camping, and are there any camping grounds that are veary near to the airport? I'm thinking this could keep the costs down so that I can make the trip a little longer.

You can camp in Iceland in April, but you have to have a good tent and a good sleeping bag. There are no camping places close to the airport, but *maybe* you can use my garden. Few meters from the runway. However very unlikely.

Well Andy the camping was great fun, and it was also cheap.

Think I might have drawn up a cunning plan; The more money saved on a hotel room means more money for buying alcohol, and the more alcohol I have, the less I will care about what I'm sleeping on.

I'm still planning on coming but will wait until we do our vacation bids for next year sometime this month to cement a hotel room. Trying to talk my wife into coming as this is very near our anniversary but when I brought it up the look I got in return....well lets just say I have some selling to do.

I posted a link in part 2 for the 'Hotel Kabin', which was £95 for three nights including breakfast. Not a bad hotel, though the rooms are a bit small.

Okay, i've been looking into Keflavik and Reykjavik. Basically Keflavik is a town for the airport. Thats IT. There seem to be a few hotels but the largest has only enough rooms for 100 people and its dated back to the 1970. There is a pizzeria which sells pizza for $25 (£13) and a steak in the resturaunts surrounding can be as expensive as $95 (£47).

Keflavik is the largest airport, but perhaps we'll be best suited to travel to Reykjavik and stay there?

I've emailed two hotels asking them to cost the price of 14 people for the 3 nights from the 13th to 16th.

OKay, I had a reply from "Room With A View Apartments"

http://www.roomwithaview.is/

Basically we could get two or three apartments there and just share them. They have apartments which can sleep upto 8 people. This reduces the cost and if we take one of their larger rooms (With access to a Jacuzzi  Wink) it will cost us around £30 a night. (or £90 for the 3 nights for those who cant add).

Its in the center of Reykjavik and the guy i spoke to said that its very close to the nightlife ( thumbsup  Wink.

What do people think? We need to get Accom sorted soon because Iceland is short on affordable places to stay and books up very quickly.

Ah well, here we go then  silly 


===============================================

The city is 25 miles from the airport. A bus link runs from the airport to downtown, website here.

Info on the city can be found at http://www.visitreykjavik.is/

Plans for the weekend....

Certainly a group tour of the city should be on the cards, if anyone is intersted?

A group restaurant booking on the Saturday night will be a good time for us all to eat, and reflect on the great weekend we should have had, by then

Some of us will be leaving on the Sunday, others will be leaving Monday.


Hotels.....


As I wrote in another thread, we can (if you want) all double up on our rooms, and save money.

The Fosshotel Baron in downtown Reykjavik does double rooms with breakfast included. If booked thru Expedia, these can cost £150 (£75 per person) for 3 nights

This hotel is in the city center, and there are a few restaurants neaby as well, including a Steakhouse.

Those who don't know much about Iceland, can get more info thru the tourist board of iceland where you will see many pictures of the city and the scenery avalable to explore on our trip.

There are many activities that we could participate in, including a trip to the famous Blue Lagoon.

All in all, this could be a really fun weekend, so no    gits please while we are out there  

Cheers,

Lee

Is that �90 for the room? So just �11 each for three days? Sounds perfect! Also 8 of us sharing an apartment could be a good laugh Big grin

How much is LA from LGW costing, taking into account connecting flights/price of petrol?
Probably cheaper flying from Glesga on a 752/753  Wink

�70 return for the flights. Petrol probably about �40-50 or something. No need for a hotel as the flight leaves at 7am, so will drive down overnight.

�80 saved  Silly

that's what I did. People, don't be babies, just book what's offered or find something else!! It's not a school trip and you're not 8 anymore!

Next thing we hear is that Lee must look after us at the Blue Lagoon, see that we wash all the necessary parts after mud bath!  Smile

Mine, too.

I've got my flights and hotel sorted, now I'm looking for some excursion possibilities as I've been to Iceland before, but Tony hasn't, so I'm in for the meal, but Blue Lagoon, Geysir, Gulfoss, I want to see again in those 3 days we have there..
