Recommendations for non-group non-driver Iceland stuff to do
December 6, 2013 1:09 AM Subscribe
Mr LyzzyBee and I will be honeymooning in Iceland, probably in June, as we found out that the buses don't run until then. We will be there for a week to 10 days. Special snowflake details: (1) We don't drive, so we won't be hiring a car. Much information assumes we are doing that. (2) We are on our honeymoon, so we don't want to go on a week-long trip with other people!

What we are looking for is recommendations on ...
-- birdwatching trips
-- saga sites trips - I want the in-depth stuff, not just a fleeting summary. Studied the stuff at university for 3 years
-- apartments in Reykjavik that one can rent for a week to 10 days. I have dietary requirements that might not be too easy to deal with, so having the option to self-cater is important for us
Not so massively interested in bouncing across the interior in a macho way and running up glaciers, though a trip through at a more sedate pace and a spot of walking would be nice.
I know there are guidebooks, but I've found personal experience of the good tour operators etc to be invaluable. Thanks in advance!
Also special bonus snowflake question Mr LB gets quite bad SAD September-end February, involving heavy use of a light box. What's going to happen in the land of the midnight sun? Will he go all weird? Anyone have direct experience of this? We're going to Finland, too, so it'll be 2 ish weeks of all the light, all the time ...
