7 nights in Iceland, in July 2018

Jump to last reply

Hi all. First things first: we know, 7 days/nights is not enough. But it's all we've got, sadly.

Please help us put together the rough outline of a plan. Our chief priorities are:
1) Scenic splendor and breathtaking vistas... and this is #1 by a wide margin
2) Nice hikes (of less than 6 hours)
3) Charming seaside villages & towns
4) B&B-style accommodations, or apartment/cabin, preferably US$150-200 per night (or less)

For those unfamiliar with ms_go and me, we're in our mid-50s, fairly active but not fitness nuts, enjoy a mix of the well-known tourist sites with some off-the-path experiences. I do most of the driving, and expect to cover a good 3-4 hours per day on this trip (or more, as needed).

I don't think we have sufficient time to cover the entire ring-road on this trip. I mean, it's do-able, but I don't know that it's advisable. Right now, we're looking to focus primarily on the west/northwest coast, and along the south coastal area as far as, say, Skaftafell. I don't know that we need to spend much time in Reykjavik.

Like I said, we're looking to start out with a rough, general outline before we flesh out the specifics of a "plan". But I've noticed that a lot of the more desirable Inns, B&Bs, etc. are already starting to book up full... almost 10 months in advance. So we need to start getting serious about this.

Thanks in advance for your help. I know I can count on the Fodorville gang !
