A quick stopover
We visited Iceland in 2014 on the way back from our Trans-Atlantic trip on the QM2.
We flew in on Iceland Air and made a 24 hour stopover.
Iceland Air certainly has an interesting network and it uses its location between North America and Europe to its advantage.
We arrived late at night and spent a night at a hotel near Keflavik airport.
The next morning we enjoyed a wonderful 3 hours relaxing in one of the main attractions of the area, the giant Blue Lagoon thermal spa, before returning to the airport. The Blue Lagoon is the largest outdoor thermal pool I have ever been in and it is very much recommended.
Sadly for me Iceland has no railways.
In the early twentieth century (1913-28) there was a narrow gauge harbour railway used in the construction of the breakwaters for the port of Reykjavik A locomotive remains on display in the city.
There are plans to build an airport rail link between the Keflavik Airport and the capital Reykjavik about 30 miles away. There are also plans to build a light rail system in the capital itself.
The little bit of Iceland that we saw impressed us both a lot. We will certainly try to go back. Hopefully they may have the railway complete by then.
