Help with Iceland Itinerary

Jump to last reply

My man and I are planning our honeymoon for June this year. Hoping to drive the Ring Road in Iceland. I would appreciate any help with our proposed itinerary, especially the distances we're traveling. We're planning to skip Reykjavik on this trip, in order to focus on the countryside, since we're interested in the unique landscape and figure we can take a less expensive long weekend in the winter to see the big city. We'd like to be able to stop along the way on our drives to take photos, so we'll probably make slow progress.

Day 1: Arrive at KEF early morning. Pick up car and drive to Snæfellsnes. Spend two nights here, with ferry trip one day and hike the second day.

Day 3: Drive to Akureyri. Spend one night here.

Day 4: Lake Myvatn. Spend two nights here.

Day 6: Drive to Höfn. One night here

Day 7: To Hella. Base for three days exploring the golden circle & southern coast.

I have a few extra days to play with, so if you feel we need an extra stop between some places please let me know. I'm most worried about the drive between Myvatn and Höfn. Should we stop in Egilsstadir? I've heard it isn't worth the visit, but please let me know if I've heard wrong!
Thanks very much!
