Review

'Full of fascinating details in writing, graphics and photos, Iceland delves deeply into the country in a format that often resists depth. Evans knows the country, and it shows. But he also organizes the essential information in an easy-to-use way. It's the combination of depth and breadth that sets this guidebook apart from many others. Evans takes his subject seriously and invites the reader in to the experience of Iceland with wit and authority.' JUDGES' COMMENTS - Society of American Travel Writers Foundation, 2008 Lowell Thomas Travel Journalism Silver Award for Best Guidebook 'Highly informative.' Transworld Surf

5.0 out of 5 stars Best Available Guide for Iceland 3 July 2010
By EMB
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I have literally just returned from a fortnight in Iceland on a fly-drive holiday where we traveled all around the coast of Iceland, mostly following the N1 ring road. Before we went, I looked at the available guides on Iceland (not as much choice as for other countries) and decided that the Bradt guide was the best of the lot. There was lots of useful information on all the areas of Iceland and my copy is now copiously highlighted throughout. If you are going to Iceland on your own or semi-independently as we did, I think that this is the guide to get.

4.0 out of 5 stars some important printing errors 28 Dec 2011
Format:Paperback
whilst i am yet to go to iceland, the guide seems fine and stands out particularly to get past the obvious places such as geysir, or blue lagoon which are great, but never seemed to me like the whole iceland experience of vast natural landscapes unique only to iceland, such as vatnajokull area, which the book outlines in accessibility and guidance of the best way to get there.

mine however has some errors. the maps are terrible: the first leaving out all the non-english alphabet in a printing error, so leaving you guessing what '_r_j_kull' is for example. some other maps aren't very in detail, such as the vatnajokull section has pages on certain places which aren't even on the map.

the only other problem was that there is no price indication for the accomodation. a classification system is used instead, but this can have a range of 50 for the budget ones (6,000-16000) which isn't ideal. its useful to have some idea even if price have changed by the time you go.

I came across Brandt guides when looking for a guide to the Faroe Islands. In the case of those islands it's very much a case of take it or leave it: there just isn't that much choice. I warmed to the guide though: not as well known as the Time Outs, Lonely Planets et al, but very good all the same. The Icelandic title is just as good though there is a greater range of alternatives in this case. However, I have to say this is one of the best. It's very detailed and very authoritative and - perhaps more importantly - very accurate.

Could I criticise it? Only on a couple of small points. It could do with more illustrations. This is definitely an old school guide where the text is, as I've said, detailed and thorough. It's not a glossy DK type photo-led title. But a few more illustrations of the features would not go amiss. Likewise maps of locales would go down well. But that's almost nitpicking. If you want to really find out about this fascinating country, this is the guide to go for.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great info but could offer a bit more 11 Aug 2009
Format:Paperback
The information is definitely a good resource. It would be nice if there were some more pictures and the maps, a bit larger. There are limited choices for travel guides for Iceland....this is the best, so far.

By Jennie

Informative, easy to use, up-to-date (June 2012). I thought this was an excellent gude and would recommend it to anyone visiting Iceland. I'll be looking out for the Bradt guides to any other new countries I visit.
