Iceland Ring Road Drive - Itinerary question?

Jump to last reply

We have made airline reservations for 11 days in Iceland in late August. We plan to book one of the self-drive (probably 2 wheel drive) tours of the Ring Road. Our flights limit us to one of the ten day/nine night options. One itinerary I've seen on several websites, circles clockwise, with stops in Rejkyavik, near Borgarfjodur, Akureyri, Myvatn (2 nights), Egilsstadir, Hofn, Kirkjubaejarklaustur, and back to Rejkyavik. Here, at long last, is my question. The tour operator says we can book an add-on day, since we have an extra day to play with. So I'm wondering: would we be better off spending the extra day in Rejkyavik (to see more of the city, or take a day trip)? Or should we spend an extra night en route? We are interested in taking the boat tour of the glacial lagoon, hiking on the glacier, and maybe booking a snowmobile ride. Are the two nights we already have in the southeast (Hofn, Kirkjubaejarklaustur) enough? If we booked an extra night in the southeast, would you suggest Skaftafell Park or Kirkjubaejarklaustur (maybe bus tour to Laki craters?) Or would you recommend another overnight in a completely different region? Thanks!
