MY HUSBAND AND I WOULD LIKE TO SPEND FIVE TO SEVEN DAYS IN ICELAND, ANY ADVICE ON WHERE TO STAY? J. DE GROEN, BAULKHAM HILLS, NSW
A few days in Reykjavik gives you easy access to the sights in the south of the island, including the spectacular Blue Lagoon, Geysir, from which we get the English word, and the amazing waterfalls at Gullfoss. From the capital you can also explore the Highlands region, one of the world's untouched wonders. The far north-west has the most astonishing scenery and if that's what you're after, Isafjorour is the only town of any reasonable size. Otherwise spend the rest of your visit at Akureyri, known as the capital of the north and set dramatically at the base of Eyjafjorour Fiord.
Both Reykjavik and Akureyri have a good choice of hotels and guesthouses, it depends what price bracket you're aiming for. Visit Iceland visiticeland.com has an accommodation site that will help you choose.
