    Good day Gents,

    Has anybody ever been to Iceland or from Iceland here? I will be traveling to Iceland with my family in April and could use some advice on where else to travel or some nice places to visit.

    We will be joining a group tour and this is our itinerary, but we will be planning on extending 2 more days.

    On the 24th we plan to go snorkeling in the Silfra fissure and no plans yet on the 25th. Anything that you guys can recommend that we visit on the 25th? We want to go to the plane crash site or the Jokulsarlon glacier beach but I have heard those are far away. Would it be possible to take a day trip to any of those places? Or do you guys have any suggestions on somewhere near Reykjavic where we can visit that is great for taking photos or some daily activities?

    Also, I know we are going on late April and the chance of seeing the Northern Lights are slim but are there any places you recommend that we can go to at night to go Aurora hunting?

    Lastly, anything I should know about carrying knives in Iceland?:)

    Many Thanks!
    Adrian

    I'm leaving for Iceland today! I found that following Iceland related Instagrams pin point the best sites to visit. Have fun. Look for a dude with a brown goruck.

    There are some companies that organize "northen lights tours" ; I guess I can not paste the link, but a google search might do the trick.

    Some friends of mine got there last year, and as I intended to get there in March for vacation, they gently forwarded me a "google maps" with POI ; I may forward you the link should you find it useful for you.
