Hello, About the local tours, what did they entail? Where their whale watching tours, and if so do you remember how much they were? What tour did you take? We are going to Iceland beginning of September on a cruise ship and will stop at 4 cities. Thanks for your help, judylee

What are some options for an adventure during the first week of November? We are visiting Iceland for the first time from Oct. 31 till Nov.7 and would like to experience something outside of the "norm". I feel as though we are between seasons. Any suggestions? DEB

Typically, the winter sets in in late October here in North Iceland. So dogsledding is a great activity in the North. cool regards
