Exploring W, S and SE with minimal backtracking

Jump to last reply

Rethinking what was originally a 9 day Ring Road trip to focus on Northwest (Snaefellsjokull) to Southeast (Hofn area).

We arrive early A.M. Monday August 24th and Depart Tuesday afternoon September 1st, so 9 days including travel days.

The plan is to get in as much natural sights as possible and a couple of adventure activities; horseback riding and glacier hike.

To avoid as much backtracking as possible, looking into domestic flights. Trying to figure out what route makes most sense:

Option A:

Drive from Reykjavik to Hofn

Fly back to Reykjavik

Drive from Snaefellsjokull and back to Reykjavik

Option B:

Fly from Reykjavic to Hofn

Drive from Hofn to Snaefellsjokull and back to Reykjavik

Similar options if we fly to Blonduos, though that's overshooting Snaefellsjokull by about 4 hours.

Hoping to fit in all/most of the following:

Thingvellir (Þingvellir) National Park

Geysir (Strokkur geyser)

Gulfoss waterfall

Seljalandsfoss waterfall

Skógarfoss waterfall

Dyrhólaey beach

Reynisfjara beach

Fjadragljufur canyon

Skatafell National Park (Svartifoss)

Vatnajokull Glacier

Jokulsarlon

Westman Islands

Snaefellsjokull National Park & Glacier

Kirkjufel

Glymur

Any thoughts?

Thanks!
