I am interested in following the experiences of those who have participated in this tour; I am considering the 2014 tour if it is being held around the same time. What we know here in Australia is that Reykjavik, virtually all of Iceland, is not a cheap place to play unless you are happy to rough it; estimate of costings of tour with Australia-London-Reykjavic transfers is $7,000. This is the upper extreme; friends have been to RIK and reported it as "expensive and narrow of choice". By the sound of Bill's itinerary about accommodation, it is basic, but comfortable. I see that this year's tour has departed in the last couple of days.
