My husband and I are hoping to have 7 days in Iceland at the end of August. We are so overwhelmed by all the possibilities that we are having trouble nailing things down.
We do not intend to see the whole ring road since we only have 7 days and we don't want to be driving the whole time.
We know we need to do Golden Circle, but beyond that we are a little stumped at the best course of action.
We love glaciers and would want to do a glacier hike. Would also love to see Icelandic ponies and puffins. Don't care for whale watching.
Outside of Reykjavik and Golden Circle, where would be the recommended few places to go? Would you recommend that we take tours or drive on our own? We are open to flying if necessary.
