Most Helpful Customer Reviews
This was the only travel book I took to Iceland and I found it invaluable! (I drove the whole Ring Road, so also bought a road map of Iceland when there.) The restaurant recommendations, travel tips, and descriptions of sights to see were especially useful. Only a few things were out -of-date.
Extremely glitchy Nook book. Often freezes my iPad. Takes way too long to turn pages and navigate via menu, compared with other travel books. Avoid.
