- I'm from Arizona (Phoenix area), so the near constant 32° F was a bit rough for me, but I still enjoyed the trip quite a bit, even if most of my pictures are of snow. :-P
The country is beautiful, the food is great, and the people are friendly. The days are very short in the winter. The sun barely makes it up over the horizon in the winter and there was constant cloud cover while I was there. I'm sure the locals passing us by got a kick out of me and my buddy trying not to kill ourselves on the iced over sidewalks. :-)
We seemed to be the only Americans in every bar and restaurant we went to. We didn't really notice any non-locals except for a pair of Russian women (because, well...). :-D
We did run into some people from Los Angeles on a day tour but it was only the four of us on the tour. I'm guessing it's probably full of tourists during the summer.
If I ever go back, I'll probably go during the summer and take more than a week there. My time was split between Reykjavik and Akureyri and it really wasn't enough time at either.
Side note: If you are a single, straight male you may never want to leave. The women there are basically all absolutely gorgeous, and not stuck up like their American counterparts.
