Leaving for Iceland around end of may, 2013 for 6 days. We are doing the southern circuit, itinerary as follows:
1. Land, pick up rental car, drive to Vik for overnight . Apart from the 2-3 waterfalls (Seljilandifoss, skogafoss), what other places should I stop at before reaching Vik ?
2. Drive East to Fosshotel Skaftafell for overnight. What is recommended on the way here?
Planing to visit JokulSarlon on this evening (2 hrs drive, I think?). Can I stop by roadside to take pics of Volcanoes/glaciers, or is it dangerous/not allowed?
3. Wake up early, drive to Jokulsarlon again...drive back towards Selfoss, overnight at Selfoss. Any other hidden waterfalls that I should know of besides the known ones ?
4. Drive to the golden triangle and then go west towards Snaefelsness, overnight at Hellnar. Tips for this day ? Is the road inside the Snaefelsness peninsula driveable at this time of the year (May end) ?
Where could I see any birds, especially Puffins, Eagles ? Photography is also a big interest for us.
Any tips will be appreciated. We will mostly be on the ring road through our journey. I hope we don't get too much bad weather around may 23 onwards.
Thanks in advance,
