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


Westman Islands

Snaefellsjokull National Park & Glacier



Any thoughts?
