Hi folks!

I just heard about Secret Solstice Festival in June. It sounds awesome. Anyone been and any tips? It's it close to the city centre? Thanks!

It is in Laugardalur "district" in Reykjavik. About 10/15min by car from the town center. And you've got buses to go there.
I've seen the line-up and I think I'm going to go there !!

I wanted to do some sailing while I was in Iceland, I'd be happy to return to favor if you find yourself in Toronto, while I am in town.

Oooh I'd love to go sailing too while visiting Reykjavik april-june - I'll read along if you get any replies.

There's a sailing club in Reykjavík harbor behind the Harpa opera house, they've got open evenings once a week I think, where you can join up with them to sail a short round in the bay. It's just group of sailboat people trying to open the sport to other people for free, so keep your demands and expectations reasonable (I'm sure you do, I just mention this because some people might not get the idea and think this is some kind of service they deserve).

Hey all!
Do you know where I could rent a bike in Hafnarfjörður (or Reykjavik)? No need for anything fancy - I just want to bike in and out of town for a day or two :)
(Or maybe I could borrow someone's old bike in exchange for coffee and cake?)

Cheers, Martina

Hello ! We are some travellers currently doing a workcamp near Reykjavik. Next week end we would like to rent a car, but there are so many rental car companies we are a little bit lost with all these offers ! Do you know where we could find some good prices for 2 days ? Do you know if there is a possibility to rent like a big car for 8 persons or something like that ? Thank you very much ! And we're also interested in meeting some local people of there is some opportunities. Thank you !

As far as local renting companies go (they can be less expensive than big groups) this is what I have in my guide so far, even though you might have found the same.

I didn't plan on renting a car, so I don't know which ones are the most interesting, but it might help

I tried sadcars once. They have cheap but old cars. It went very good.

i'm planning on renting with sixt for our trip---i found their online prices very competitive and heard that it was a trusted company within europe.
