Jackie’s tips for her 4-day trip to Reykjavik, Iceland in the autumn. She loves music and outdoor activities.

Who & what? I’m a musician and these tips are from a 4 day solo trip to Reykjavik with an excursion to see the Northern Lights.

Any lodging, restaurants or activities especially awesome?  I stayed at Reykjavik City HI Hostel, a big youth hostel (that also happens to be amazing and clean) and I met great people there. The hostel is next door an indoor/outdoor geothermal heated pool, called Laugardalslaug. Definitely go for a swim – it’s fun and good exercise!

Dislikes/things you would have done differently? One of the trip highlights was going horseback riding and seeing the Northern Lights. Ask your accommodation to help organize both activities.

If you had one more/one less day?  If I had more time I would have traveled to other towns and organized the trip around additional music events/festivals.
