Iceland travel resources & links

This page contains links to information about some of the travel resources we used during our trip, or while planning it.

General Resources

Reading

For background on Iceland I recommend Terry Lacy's Ring of Seasons, a nice one-volume overview of Icelandic history and culture, and (more academic) Gunnar Karlsson's History of Iceland. And for fiction, the Icelandic Sagas, Halldor Laxness' classic Independent People, and Angels of the Universe.

We bought Jóhann Óli Hilmarsson's Icelandic Bird Guide and found it excellent. Some of my information about buildings comes from Works Along the Way (Icelandic Concrete Association, 2002).

See my Iceland and Icelandic literature reviews for other books I've read.

For Next Time

I keep in touch with what's happening in Iceland by occasionally reading the Iceland Review.
