Vacation 2007 in... Iceland?

I am in the very early stages of planning a vacation this year. Last year sucked for it and I didn't go anywhere interesting. So to make up for this, I think I am going to go to Iceland. At least I think so. I used GoogleEarth and zoomed around the place and read tons of info on it for several hours last night and began to bookmark interesting info on it. I purchased a Lonely Planet guide at Chapters too. Just the pocket one as the big one was not available.

A good and surprising thing is that the Iceland Tourist board's web site is highly comprehensive, detailed, and has a vast amount of information right there. Excellent stuff and while not quite one stop shopping, it is a start. Icelandair flies out of several places - including Halifax -and while I can't seem to yet find info on flights within Iceland to explore, that as an option, renting a car (4WD is a must I think) is going to be the plan.

Over 20 hours of daylight mid summer, glaciers, whales, a hair below the Arctic Circle - you know I am going to cross that ! - and a highly educated and English as a second or third language population... the Althing, a really long underwater car tunnel, puffins, a rich maritime tradition, hotsprings, the location of the Reagan/Gorbachev Summit, gorgeous scenery...

Yep. More to follow.
