Help needed with 8 day itinerary in Iceland in November 2012

Jump to last reply

I am planning a holiday to Iceland (basing myself in Reykjavik) from 12th November to 21st 2012. I’m trying to plan an itinerary and would appreciate some advice on what I have come up with so far. I have a feeling I am trying to fit too much in!

I am looking at booking a lot of tours and would appreciate some tips on what tour companies to go with. I am on a budget but like going with smaller tour groups as they tend to be more personalised.
I also wonder whether it is easy to travel by bus around Iceland at this time of year to see these places without booking tours as it would save quite a lot of money.

Also, is it better to book all these tours in advance, or should I just go to tourist information/hostel on my first day sightseeing in Reykjavik and get my information from there?

I’m open to ANY suggestions, thanks so much!

Jökulsarlon: Is there any other tour companies that do this tour in November and is Extreme Iceland a good company to go with? I’ve read some average reviews saying they are associated with Gray Line.

**Would it be better/cheaper to stay overnight in Akureyri and book a tour guide to Lake Myvatn from there?
