Does this Iceland Itinerary Work? Best Routes? Sites?

Jump to last reply

Hi:
I've read a lot of threads here on itineraries and came up with this itinerary (below) for an early August 2006 trip. Is it too late to book the hotels?
Are the routes and sites to see doable in the time I outlined or too rushed? Am I missing any key sites I really should see? Are there some I should skip?
Are these the best cities/towns for overnights? How do I find the best hotel bookings?

DAY 1: LAX to BOS; BOS to KEF
Day 2: Arrive Reykjavik 6:30 am rest day, stay at Reykjavik Hotel
3: Drive Golden Circle stay at Reykjavik Hotel
4: Drive to Akureyri: 5 hour drive then wander town, stay at Akureyri Hotel
5: Drive toward Egalsstadir: See Myvatn Volcanic lake, Godafoss waterfall and Krafla volcano area, stay at Egalsstadir area Hotel
6: Drive toward Hofn: See East fjords drive and view of Vatnajokull glacier, take Jokulsarlen glacier boat ride, Ingolfshofdi puffins? (gone in 2nd week of August???), stay at Hofn area Hotel
7: Drive toward Vik: See Skaftafell Park glacier and black sands, stay at Vik area Hotel
8: Drive toward Reykjavik: See Seiljalandsfoss and Skogafoss waterfalls, Thingveliir Nat’l Park, stay at Reykjavik Hotel
9: Reykjavik: Wander around. Stay at Reykjavik Hotel
10: Depart 5pm

Thanks!!!
