Iceland Itinerary - First Trip

Hello! My wife and I are traveling to Iceland next month for the first time and I was hoping to get suggestions from the group. Here is our 12 day itinerary:

Day One: Arrive in Iceland late Friday night. Stay in a hotel in Reykjavic and experience the Reykjavic nightlife.

Day Two: Golden Circle day Tour (Geysir, Strokkur, Gullfoss, and Þingvellir), any left over time spent touring Rejkjavic.

Day Three: Possible white water rafting trip, or boat trip to the Westmen islands, or possibly a horse riding tour. Night in Reykjavik or maybe head on to Snaefellnes for the night.

Day Four: Pick up rental car. Leave Reykjavik and pass through Borgarnes on the way to the Snaefellnes Peninsula. Night in Snaefellnes.

Day Five: Morning in Snaefellnes Peninsula, and on to the West Fjords. Hotel in Isafjordur.

Day Six: Day in West Fjords visiting Breidavik Beaches and Latrabjarg (western most point of Europe). Hotel in Isafjordur.

Day Seven: Leave early to Akureyri stopping in Bru, Saudarkokur, Skagufjordour, and Siglufjordur on the way. Stay the night in Akureyri or near by.

Day Eight: Whale watching from Husavik in the morning, and touring Akureyri afternoon/night. Night in Akureyri.

Day Nine: Dettifoss, Myvatn, and possibly seeing some of the interior. Night in Akureyri.

Day Ten: Return rental car. Plane/boat ride to Grimsey. More exploring of Akureyri. Hotel in AAkureyri.

Day Eleven: Early flight from Akureyri to Reykjavik. All day tour of the Jokulsarlon glacial lakes. Night in Reykjavik.
