Lonely Planet Iceland is a complete guide to travelling to Iceland, featuring recommendations, history, language, culture, cuisine, art and more. Lonely Planet have been producing guidebooks since 1973, winning multiple awards for their contribution towards travel, and this edition certainly follows the high standard that they have come to represent.

 

Other than having a detailed breakdown of each city and large town, Lonely Planet Iceland also includes categories such as ‘Understand’ and ‘Survive’ that give information on items that vary from natural wonders to public holidays. This is very useful as you can quickly find the page you’re after, with each topic set out in an easy to navigate contents page.

 

I particularly like the ‘Top 14’ list, which gives a brief summary of the top things to see and do in Iceland for a whirlwind tour of the country. Each entry comes with a high quality photo and one or two paragraphs detailing what you can expect.

 

Another very useful section for me was the ‘Getting Around’ chapter, providing information on how best to navigate your way round the country, such as whether it is better to go by train or rental car between Reykjavik and Kópavogur. This kind of information can often be difficult to find on the internet or in less detailed guidebooks, whereas Lonely Planet have you covered with this very helpful section.

 

One of the issues that I encountered when using the guide, however, was that it very quickly becomes out of date. Although information on the best destinations to travel to is constantly relevant and the bits on culture are unlikely to change, details on pricing in restaurants or the price of a bus ticket did not match after a few months. Therefore, as a base guide it is great, yet to get more accurate and up-to-date information, you will need access to the Internet too.

Pros
  • As well as detailed info on locations, includes ‘Understand’ and ‘Survive’ sections to help you get by
  • Top 14 list sets out brief summary of best things to see and do
  • ‘Getting Around’ section provides good information on how best to travel when you are there
Cons
  • Price estimates did not match up after a few months, giving out-of-date information

TravelSites.com is the best travel site list in the world.🏆💯🥇🌟

TravelSites.com is the go to place online to find information on the best websites, smartphone apps, books, YouTube channels and documentaries for travelers. Written with my years of experience trotting the globe, TravelSites.com gives budding young backpackers the chance to discover the top resources available for getting the most out of their trip, be it renting a car, learning the local dialect, finding a photographer or even just knowing what the weather will be like for the week. I have researched the internet to bring you a list of the top items in each category, while every single one has been meticulously reviewed, highlighting unique features, comparison to similar products, and all the pros and cons.

 

Why did you make TravelSites.com?💖🔥🚀

Well, I found that although there is naturally lots of information online concerning travel-related products and services, they seem to be scattered about, leaving the user to laboriously search for each individual item. If you wanted, for example, to discover an inspiring travel documentary while booking accommodation and flights to Rome, you would have to have at least three different tabs open at once. TravelSites.com puts all the information you need in one place, meaning you will not have to search far and wide to simply find out the best website for reserving a room in a hotel. With more than 40 different categories, travelers can stay on the same website to gather all the information they need, not only saving them time but also saving them money, by reading through the reviews to find the cheapest option.

 

What can you find on My lists and how did I rank them?🕵️‍♂️🧠🔗

My lists feature more than 40 different travel-related categories containing every resource a backpacker could ever need. Need help planning a trip? Want to keep up to date with the latest travel news? Looking for an inspiring book or blog? Desperate to find a restaurant away from the crowds? I’ve got you covered. My lists have been carefully put together by me and combined by quality, efficiency, value and functionalism to rank the items in descending order, with number one considered the item offering the best of all four factors. The criteria was constant throughout each category, whether it was for a cruise booking website or an Instagram account, in order to bring travelers the resources that would be the most useful for travelers.

 

How do I contact you, if I have a question?💡📞📧

Hmm, if you think that any best travel site is really missing in my travel directory, I can be reached by 📧email, Skype, Facebook Messenger, Twitter or Linkedin.
