First time to Iceland

Hello,

I would like to visit Iceland at the end of August for 7 days. Could you please help me to start

It is better to stay in one place or to stay in many places

I’m interested in nature and wild life

Thanks

1. Re: First time to Iceland

You could mix and match from the following options:

Arrival day: Reykjavík

1 day Golden Circle

1 day Reykjanes Peninsula

2-3 days South Coast until Jökulsárlón and back or 1 day South Coast tour until Vík and back

1 day Westman Islands

1-2 days Snæfellsnes

1 day Highland excursion by bus or superjeep tour to Landmannalaugar or Þórsmörk

1 day activity day tour (snorkeling Silfra, hiking, snowmobiling, horse riding, glacier hiking, ice climbing, atc etc.)

Are you planning to drive or to book guided tours? If you are planning to drive accommodation availability may determine your itinerary at this late point, since you should stay en route if you want to see Jökulsárlón or Snæfellsnes.

So once you pick the areas you would most like to see, check and book accommodation quickly.

1. A good guide book.

2. Google "things to do in Iceland"

3. Google " where to stay in Iceland"

4. Read the top questions/answers down the RHS of this page.

5. You are very late in planning for this summer, A lot of accommodations have been sold out for months and those that are still available are now very costly. Ditto for car rentals.

Thank you so much for replies. I may cancel the trip to Iceland since the prices for the accommodation are really high. We may make it next week

thanks a lot
