Looking to share car rental costs June/July in IcelandI'm an early-30s active female from Hawai`i visiting Iceland from 21 Jun - 15 Jul. I'm looking for someone that may want to split a car rental for at least part of that time. In the south, I'm interested in the Landamannalangar to Skogar hike in four days (I have my own tent + gear), some hiking/backpacking in Skaftafell, and maybe a side-trip to Jokulsarlon. In the west, I'm interested in Snaefellsnes, Isafjordur and perhaps a few days in Hornstandir depending on if and for how long I decide to go to Greenland. I am still open to other destinations, but I'm most interested in sharing a car rental for the West Fjordlands segment since it seems to be the best way to see that part of the country. Let me know if you're game!

1Hey! Some friends and I are arriving into Reykjavik 27th June - staying at Kex Hostel - then leaving on the bus to Landmannalaugar on the 29th, then doing the famous four day trek 30th June - 03rd July finishing Skogar, from where we'll take the bus to Skaftafell National Park. We'd like to do a few day treks taking us to perhaps the 06th July, however my friends are keen just to relax in the national park, whereas I'd prefer to hire a car and drive around Iceland to see waterfalls like DYNJANDI, SKÓGAFOSS, DETTIFOSS, GULLFOSS, HÁIFOSS, GOÐAFOSS, the Golden Circle and much more, as my flight home from Reykjavik isn't until the 15th July! What are your plans in terms of your route? I'd like to meet you guys, should you have a place remaining in the car, however I think it'll be difficult to meet up, as I imagine there won't be mobile phone reception in Skaftafell National Park! Let me know if you're still looking for people.

2Hi, I don´t know about c_viader since I didn´t hear back from them, but my plans are now to return from Greenland back to Reykjavik 11 July and leave 15 July. I´ve already done the southern route with hikes, so I don´t think that it will work out for us to share a car.
However, if anyone is looking to share a car 11-15 July to explore the Westfjords or Snafaelsnes area, let me know!
