NETID ehf. is a marketing and consultancy company, which also publishes media for travelers: The Visitor's Guide, Visitor's Guide Information for Tourists folder, www.visitorsguide.is and www.restaurants.is.
The Visitor's Guide is a pocket-sized book, which contains a lot of useful and valuable information on Reykjavik and Iceland. The material in the guide is aimed at meeting the needs and interests of travellers to Iceland. It has been developed from surveys among employees working in hotels, guesthouses and information centres, as well as from a research made by the Icelandic Tourist Board and others. The guide is available at the information desk at Keflavik airport or at your hotel/guesthouse.
The booklet contains articles about the Althing (the old Icelandic parliament), the Northern Lights, Icelandic horses, whales and birds. It also contains articles about traditional Icelandic food and some food recipes, as well as information about Icelandic names, art, culture, children's activities in Reykjavik and the Reykjavik outdoors. You will also find information about some countryside destinations and information about prices.
Other important information is included in the booklet, such as information about the time of sunrise and sunset in Reykjavik, along with information about the average temperature and the number of daylight hours in Reykjavik. The last two are compared to other cities and countries, and the comparison may surprise many foreigners since the temperature in Reykjavik is a lot higher than is generally believed.
Important dates in the history of Iceland are traced on a banner running through the Guide, all the way back to the year 874.
The Visitors' Guide has information and advertisements for restaurants (some have special offers and discounts), shopping, tours, leisure and recreation. It has information on all the thermal swimming pools in Reykjavik, such as the facilities in each pool, prices, opening hours and the location, which is shown on a map. You will also find information about the cafés and the nightlife in Reykjavik, the main bus routes, statistics and much more.
There is also information about how much things cost in Iceland, as well as discount coupons which give discounts at restaurants, whale watching tours, car rental and more.
The guide has two maps of Reykjavik: one covering all of Reykjavik and the other covering the City Centre. A third map portrays popular walking routes in Reykjavík, where interesting places, art galleries and designer shops are specially marked for the traveller's convenience. The fourth map is of Laugardalur valley, a park in the middle of Reykjavik that offers various leisure and recreation activities at places such as the Laugardalur thermal swimming pool, Reykjavik Park and Zoo, Reykjavik Botanical Garden, the ice-skating hall and more. All these places are marked on the map. You can view the full guide on our website.
The Information Folder for tourists is available at all hotels and most guesthouses in Reykjavik. It contains information in six languages; Icelandic, English, German, French, Swedish and Spanish.
At bigger hotels you will find the Information for Tourists folder at the reception desk, but at smaller hotels and guesthouses they are placed at the most convenient place.
When you arrive at your hotel/guesthouse, just ask for the Information for Tourists folder - they will know what you are refering to.
