Hi Danielle, Well we are back and everything went smoothly.

Hi Danielle,

Well we are back and everything went smoothly. Check in at EIA went smoothly, we did not pre book our seats and we were there about 2.5 hours before flight time. Flight was full and no problem getting seats together. Transfer from Reykjavik airport went smoothly as well, very efficient in moving passengers into the city. Hotel was great, Centerhotel Arnarhvoll. They allowed us an early checkin for a fee of approx 60.00 Cdn. The staff was great and the breakfast (included in room chg) was really good. It was a smorg (the same every day) but great variety and tasty. It is served on the 8th flr which has floor to ceiling windows with a fantastic view of the harbour as well as the Harpa Concert Hall. They also have a happy hour on the 8th as well as luch/dinner from a set menu. Hotel was really clean and located right on the harbour which was walking distance to pretty well anywhere.(ask to be booked on the harbour side) We used Elding Whale Watch which is an established company that runs year round and they are great. Supply passengers with coveralls to keep warm as well they are flotation devices.Really informative the whole time you are out in the water, give great info on the whales, bird life etc. And we did see 2 whales, dolphins and porpoises. We also used www.Happyworld.is for our northern lights tour. Would highly recommend this company as it is really small (they only take about 8 passengers in jeeps). It is a bit more expensive than taking a tour bus but is it more intimate. They also bring along a high powered telescope to let you look at other objects in the sky (Robert is very knowledgable in that area) and a treat for all (hot chocolate & a sweetie) They also take photos of everyone in the group with the northern lights in the sky and email them to you. We had great fun! You can book them online. I believe they also do para sailing in the summer months. We also went to the National Museum and their Art Gallery. Oh, and the golden circle tour was great as well. All in all I would go back there when it is a bit warmer to experience other tours etc and I would definitely go Iceland Air to Europe in the future. Thanks so much Danielle for all your time and help, it really was a great trip. Hope my tips on the two companies aid you in booking others in the future. Thanks again from Leslie & Cathy!!!
