5.0 von 5 Sternen Auf Lonely Planet ist einfach verlass! 19. Juni 2014
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
War mit dem Reiseführer letztes Jahr 3 Wochen allein in Island unterwegs. Das Ding hat mich kein einziges mal im Stich gelassen und ich hatte eine unvergessliche Zeit dort oben! Nicht zuletzt auf Grund der tollen Tipps, wie z.B. Schneemobil fahren. :-)

5.0 von 5 Sternen Lonely Planet Iceland 18. März 2014
Von Sandra
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
Der Reiseführer liest sich sehr gut (wenn man englisch kann) und macht Lust sofort los zu fliegen.
Wie sich die Tipps umsetzen lassen und ob der Inhalt noch aktuell ist kann ich noch nicht beurteilen, da ich erst im Herbst fliegen werde.

There's no ideal guidebook on Iceland, and there can be found no better one than this. However also the Lonely Planet has outages like 1) some essential listings missing 2) Prices not accurate due to heavy inflation (price-increases) in Iceland 3) Some reviews not understandeable, e.g. chapter of Borganes).

This is a great and very useful guidebook of Iceland. Doesn't contain many pictures but the information is complete with good recommendations of restaurants and hotels, touristic places etc.

4.0 von 5 Sternen not as helpful for off-season travelers (Nov-March) 14. November 2013
Von occasional adventurer - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
(updated) I bought this guide in hopes of travel tips for my upcoming trip in March. I'm disappointed that there's little mention of winter travel, with most information for tours, accommodation, museums, etc. for May-Oct (especially considering that Icelandair presents flight deals and budget-friendly packages for the off-season travel period). The book suggests there's little offered at this time, when internet research proves otherwise (for the West, Southwest, and South of Iceland, anyway)!

There's only a little bit of information on tour companies, with about a dozen listed in the Reykjavik section, and a rundown of each. That was a little reassuring, but internet research and tripadvisor reviews will prove to be more helpful. Not much information on the road conditions in late-Winter/early-Spring and whether it is recommended to rent a car and drive during this time period. (It is possible to rent a car, but is it unwise?--internet suggests car rental in March could be okay) (Is it risky to rely on the public bus to other cities in March?--internet suggests yes). The internet is proving to be more fruitful with winter traveling - look at tripadvisor forums, blogs, there's a website with current road conditions...

In the end we've decided to rent a car for most of the trip, as it gives us more freedom, and go with a company on 1-2 tours. Between two people touring by car comes out to the same as the medium-large tours, if not less. That is including the cost of gas. I will keep on with the google research for my trip, and I may keep this book for the descriptions of places. I'll definitely want Lonely Planet Iceland for when I one day take a summer trip (best: car rental and camping)!

4.0 von 5 Sternen The best guide I’ve found; it’s a good book 3. Oktober 2013
Von CompLit - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
We drove the Ring Road around Iceland using the Lonely Planet book as a guide. I read three guide books, and the Lonely Planet is the best one I found; it worked well for us. Although the Lonely Planet is not as bad as the other two, all three books suffer from going into great detail about driving somewhere without telling you just where in Iceland you are. You’ll find yourself scratching your head going back and forth between the book and a map. You will need a good map; the best I found is the Iceland (Adventure Travel Map) by National Geographic. The maps in the books are marginally useful; quite often reading them is like looking at a map through a straw. Also, since these books can be updated only so often, be sure to use Internet. For example, there is a three-star hotel in Hellissandur near the tip of the Snaefellsnes Peninsula. The most recent edition of Lonely Planet doesn’t mention Hellissandur at all, except to say that it exists.

4.0 von 5 Sternen A very useful guide 27. August 2013
Von RCyyz - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verifizierter Kauf
I just got back from my first time in Iceland and I have to say, the Lonely Planet Guide certainly came in handy.

I flew in to Reykjavik then picked up the rental car and drove clockwise around the Ring Road. Lonely Planet never let me down and made it easy to plan ahead by deciding where to go and what to see. As I purchased the eBook, it was easier still to take it with me since it doesn't add any weight to my iPad. :-)

Highlighting passages in the book for later reference was easy and handy. The links to the table of contents were good and the built-in maps, for the most part, were adequately detailed to be useful. If you have a data connection you can also link to Google Maps for certain highlights, but Google Maps in Iceland is somewhat lacking in detail and not 100% accurate.

My main complaint with this guide is that it's a bit hard to follow where certain places are. If you've never been to a place and are unfamiliar with the local geography, the reading about a village or significant site without placing it on the map is a bit difficult. For this reason I wish LP had put more links in the eBook. Ideally I'd like to see the name of a place as a link. When you touch it, a pop-up map should come up with the right place highlighted. This would make using the eBook so much easier.

My other peeve with the book is that it doesn't always do things in the same order. I drove the Ring Road clockwise, but you could just as easily do it counterclockwise. And I think most people going to Iceland will tend to do the Ring Road in one direction or the other. It should follow then that the book should list places in more or less clockwise or counterclockwise order. For the most part they do actually do this, but not always which was annoying. Like I said, if you've never been somewhere then just reading about it won't necessarily help you place things geographically. So reading about things in order would have helped a lot.

I also would have appreciated a stronger guide to Icelandic pronunciation. Some things are explained – the book notes for example that Höfn is pronounced as “Hup” which is pretty accurate. But nowhere did I see that Pingvellir is pronounced “Thingveteer”. It’s not a huge problem; as you travel through Iceland just pay attention and you’ll eventually be able to guess accurately on pronunciations. But it would have been nice if the book had more notes on this.

The restaurant recommendations were surprisingly good. I don't usually trust guide books for food recommendations but I found the LP to be very good. I had made my own hotel arrangements and thus did not need the book for this, but I imagine they would be pretty accurate.

On the whole then I would say that this book has been well researched and well written by some folks who have obviously travelled extensively in Iceland at different times of the year. The love of the country that the authors have developed comes though in their writing which is something I enjoyed. The authors are also quite fair in terms of observations and opinions.

There are a few guide books out there on Iceland, but I’m glad I picked up the Lonely Planet to help me on my trip.

5.0 von 5 Sternen I've had it for 20 minutes and I already love it 6. Juni 2013
Von Kelsey McFarlane - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch|Verifizierter Kauf
First of all, pre-ordering + Amazon Prime = amazing. I was so surprised at how fast the book came after it was released.

I bought this book for my upcoming trip to Iceland in July. I have already done a lot of planning using Trip Adviser, forums, and an old LP I got from the library.

Just paging through this book, I can tell that it will be a lot of help on our trip. It is organized really well by areas of the country, and there are a lot of specific discussions about traveling in different ways, like planning a trip around the Ring Road or different outdoor activities. There are also a few different itineraries for DIY travelers.

The maps look very clear and the pictures are beautiful. I will have to update my review after we get back.

It's a good overview of the country. We don't have a long visit scheduled so we were looking for something that we knew would hit the high points which it does nicely. It worked well for our purpose.
