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.
With regard to the actual content, I cannot say that there is anything missing from the Lonely Planet book, but the way the content is ordered makes it hard to find the key attractions in an area. For each town or location you have to wade through the lists of how to get there, accommodation, eateries etc. It would be better to have the accommodation and restaurants lists in a separate section of the book.
With that, I did not find a better book on Iceland, and we did make good use of it (hard copy) in our 9 day visit and journey round the Ring Road.
