Iceland : Car rental and itinerary

Jump to last reply

Hello!

I'm planning to visit Iceland in June. I'm travelling solo. I want to rent a car. It's quite expensive, so I can only afford a small 2wd (and it has to be automatic). I want to go away from the ring road, for example the West Fjords. How is the road up there, for example going from Bildudalur to Holmavik? And Akureyki to Husey via Kopasker ?

Here's what I've planned doing:
Lundi 8 juin Reykjavik, arrive AM
Mardi 9 juin Reykjavik - Grundarfjordur (253 km)
Mercredi 10 juin Grundarfjordur - Bildudalur (299 km)
Jeudi 11 juin Bildudalur - Korpudalur (104 km)
Vendredi 12 juin Korpudalur - Holmavik (? km)
Samedi 13 juin Holmavik - Saeberg (? km)
Dimanche 14 juin Saeberg - Akureyri (230 km)
Lundi 15 juin Akureyri - Kopasker (188 km)
Mardi 16 juin Kopasker - Husey (? km)
Mercredi 17 juin Husey - Stodvarfjordur (? km)
Jeudi 18 juin Stodvarfjordur - Hofn (160 km aprox)
Vendredi 19 juin Hofn - Hvoll (160 km)
Samedi 20 juin Hvoll - Skogar (137 km)
Dimanche 21 juin Skogar
Lundi 22 juin Skogar - Laugarvatn (188 km)
Mardi 23 juin Laugarvatn - Reykjavik (77 km)
Mercredi 24 juin Reyjjavik – MTL flight back

What do you think of such an itinerary? I'll be driving alone. And want to be able to enjoy the sights too.

Do you know of websites that have more detailed road maps? I read that I can't go on F roads with a 2wd, but the maps I see don't have road numbers! :P

Thanks a lot for any extra tips! I'm exicited about this trip!! :D
