Do We Need A Guide to do the Ring Road?

Jump to last reply

We are trying to decide if it is worthwhile hiring a private guide for our trip to Iceland next year. We will be traveling to Iceland September 2017 for about 10 days. Our plan is to drive the ring road. Interested in scenery, of course, short hikes (< 5 miles) and photography.

I see many people using private guides for this type of trip, while many others do it on their own. We have never used a private guide, so I am not sure what the benefits are while in Iceland. I assume they can take you places that you may not find on your own. We are comfortable driving in general, and it seems easy to book rooms on booking.com. So am I missing something? Should we consider hiring a guide? Thanks.
