Hi all, I'm happy to be returning to Iceland in the beginning of December and finally getting to see more of the country. My boyfriend and I are trying to save as much money as possible (AirBNB, cooking our own meals, etc.), but would love to find any tours or self-guided tours that would fit in. Please suggest anything! My itinerary roughly is as follows:
Day 1: Reykjavik (exploring the city, local pools)
Day 2: Self Guided Golden Circle (please suggest any stops other than the classic)
Anyone know what the conditions are like on the trail and the road around June 24? Is it likely to be opened around then?
Looking into going from Landmannalaugar to Thorsmork. I have all my own camping gear/cooking, but not against staying in the huts depending on conditions/weather. I understand its quite unpredictable and perhaps part of the trek will be difficult with snow and seeking advice whether its a good idea this early on in the season.
Are there any sites that update…
Hi! Based on research here I formulated this 10 day itinerary. Can you please let me know what places are not as important and what am I missing?
Day 3 seems like too much - is it?
The Blue Lagoon Spa
sleep in Reykjavík
- Thingvellir (Þingvellir) National Park - Silfra Snorkeling
- Þingvallavatn lake
- Haukadalur to see Strokkur and Geysir
- Gullfoss waterfall
( Langjökull snow mobile - maybe)
Sleep in Hvolsvöllur
Travelling to Iceland in mid-September (September 20 thru October 4th). My first solo trip ever. It’s going to be the one of the best road trips of my life. I'm planning to rent a 4x4 car and drive the ring road with stops along the way. I have only 14 days and want to cover as much as possible and stay mostly one or 2 days in a place depending on the route I take. feel free to send me a private message if you are interested in joining me! I don't like to drive by myself. I'm…
My husband and I will land in Iceland on Sept 1 and fly out on Sept 8. We want to spend the first day in Reykjavik to see the city and get our bearings (we'll be coming off an overnight flight) then are thinking of hitting the ring road via camper van the next morning. However everything I read says you need a minimum of 7 days - ideally 10 days - to fully appreciate the ring road so I'm not sure if we'll be just a little too rushed to really enjoy it. Thoughts?
Also, if we don't do this…
We are going to be in Iceland for 10 days. We will rent a car. I am not quite sure what we have time to see. I organized a list together from what I read but I'm not sure if all of these things are necessary. What am I missing? Please organize this for us.
- Thingvellir National Park
- Geysir geothermal area, Strokkur
- Gullfoss waterfall
- Þingvallavatn lake
The Blue Lagoon
I’m looking at an itinerary for a +/-10 day trip to Iceland. It’s an ‘extra’ trip so I don’t want to spend too much.
I would like to do some hiking, without having to invest in additional equipment (I have done a lot of trekking but in the Himalayas in lodges, so I don’t have adequate camping gear). Therefor I’m looking at day hikes around huts where there are eating options as well. I also prefer to explore a limited number of areas a bit more in depth, ideayll outside of ‘rush hour’…
Hello, my GF and I are putting together a last-minute itinerary because a reservation for a multi-day tour fell through.
We have 8 days / 7 nights in Iceland and are fairly adventurous. We're looking for challenging hikes and off-the-beaten path sites, however we do prefer to stay in huts or cottages rather than camp in tents.
We want to spend some time around the Snaefellsjoekull National Park and see some fjords. We can skip the Ring Road, the Blue Lagoon, and even Vik if it means we can do…
I' m going to Iceland in august and, as accomodation prices are really high for my budget, I'm plannig to camp as much as possible.
Do I need to reserve in advance in camping sites for a tent? are campings well spread over the country or just few?
Thank You in advance
Hi icelandic travellers!
I’m travelling to Reyjkjavik in mid-June, for a week, planning to base myself there and do some day-trips around (I’ll leave the big circle around the country for next time, hopefully).
I got the impression that official tours are designed more for wealthy tourists spending packs of money, which (unfortunately :) ) is not my case! Probably the same for many fellow travelers…
Anyway, I try to find nice places, to get a good feel of Icelandic nature (if possible)…
