First trip to Iceland! Need help planning!

Jump to last reply

Hello seasoned travelers! I've booked tickets to Iceland, but have no idea how to start planning the actual trip. Any advice would be greatly appreciated!

My boyfriend and I will be traveling there from Aug 10th - Aug 16th. The tour packages are out of our price range, so we're going to DIY. Have done some initial research, and it seems like renting a car may be our best option. We're tentatively planning on keeping home base in Reykjavik and taking day trips from there (but if anyone has other suggestions, please do let me know!)

Would love to know how make the best of our 6 days in Iceland on a budget! So very excited for the journey, and would love to hear from anyone who has been there.

Thanks!
