Do you have your accommodation booked already? If not you may have trouble finding places in the areas you want to at this late point, so checking availability should be your first step.

Your plan is a pretty standard ring road plan. We can give you better feedback if you list the things you want to see and do each day. Driving the ring road will require a couple of hours of driving every day. Only you know if your kids ar fine with that.

Íshestar has a Meet the Icelandic Horse tour where younger children can pet the horses and ride around the paddock.

One of the many public pools may be more fun for your kids than the Blue Lagoon where there is nothing much to do for children.

thanks. Will check out the accommodation.

haven't checked out exact things to do yet. just to see if some parts of the itinerary makes absolutely no sense. or if there would involve too much driving on one day.

should i cut one of the reykjavik? or there will be enough to do? Thanks.

It will depend on what you want to see and do in each area plus on availability where it might make sense to spend an extra day.

The Westman Islands could be a nice trip by ferry from the South Coast or the Tröllaskagi Peninsula from Akureyri or Reykjanes from Reykjavík.

Iceland requires a lot of research and planning. So do your research on the options you and your family may like and check accommodation availability first.
