Iceland is much bigger than I realised – it’s larger than Ireland, for instance – so you have to stay in different places. Fortunately, bus services are excellent (there are no trains) and there are many excellent hostels. Of course, you can travel by car but that’s an option I prefer to avoid, apart from the occasional hitch when things are desperate. My 10-day exploratory visit took in the west, south and east coasts but did not include the interior or the north. So, omitting some tourist hot-spots, here’s some less accessible and less well-known spots that I discovered.
