Comments on Iceland Itinerary Please

Jump to last reply

I'm thinking of going to Iceland in late March and don't have a great deal of time to plan and research so I've been looking at some pre-planned self drive trips along the southwest coast.

This itinerary looks pretty complete to me but I'm just wondering about the driving times the first few days. Does it seem like too much driving, especially since the first few nights are one nighters?

I've read that there is one main h'way that circumnavigates the island so I assume driving times will be fairly quick? Or are there other more scenic roads that are likely to add to the driving times.

I'm assuming there will be lots of stop offs for photo ops along the way and realize that there will still be limited daylight in March.

Also, how is late March weatherwise and daylight wise? I was reading about the four seasons on one website and it said, in substance, "If it's possible for you to visit in winter, then do so". Would that be b/c of the northern lights, or another reason such as beautiful winter scenery?

This trip is considered a "winter" trip and has departures thru' April 30th. I can also go in April if that would be better
