    Thanks for the walking tour in early September, I enjoyed it. Sure wish I’d looked into Al Anon in English when I was there, o well, this post has been helpful and I will check a meeting out when I am there again, I stayed very near the pond through Air BnB. I had a wonderful time over my 4 days, your website was especially helpful, by the way I got my hair cut at whatever the salon is above the Subway on the main street, I like it! Thanks so muc h for all your helpful info.

        I’m staying at hotel cabin in Reykjavik. Are there any AA meetings near by?

          Check the AA website and contact them for more information.

          There are AA meetings in Icelandic near by but I believe the English ones are all downtown.

    What time is the SLAA meeting?
    I can’t read icelandic

    1. mm Auður says:

      The SLAA website is not working so I can’t see their meeting agenda I’m afraid.

      There’s a place called the Alanó club where a lot of the 12-step meetings are held, maybe you can contact them and see if they can help you:
