Driving Times in Iceland

Jump to last reply

My wife and I are traveling through Iceland this summer and wanted some feedback on our itinerary. Specifically, we are driving and wanted to know how much time it will take to drive from location to location and whether or not it is doable in a non 4wd vehicle. Also, any hotel suggestions outside of Reykjavik would be helpful.

Day 1 - Arrive in Reykjavik, Tour City
Day 2 - Tour Pingvelur National Park, Geyser, Gulfoss
Day 3 - Drive north to Stykkisholmur... stop by Deildartunguhver, Hravnfossar and Hvalfjordur on the way (Need hotel suggestion for Stykkisholmur)
Day 4 - Tour Snaefellsness Pennsisula/Whale Watching using Stykkisholmur as a base
Day 5 - Drive east to Akureyri (Need hotel suggestion)
Day 6 - Tour Lak Myvatin, Godafoss and Dettifoss ... (QUESTION - Should we go back to Akureyi or proceed to Husavik for the night???)
Day 7 - Tour Jokulsargljufer National Park, Asbyrgi Canyon. Stay in Husavik
Day 8 - Drive from Husavik to Reykjavik (we know this will be a long drive... but not quite sure how long)

We have a feeling that we might be overextending ourselves with respect to driving times, etc. So, if anyone could help us out so we don't end up driving for 90+% of our vacation, we would greatly appreciate it... Any other suggestions about the itinerary would also be helpful. Thanks!!!!!.
