Iceland solo trip

I plan solo trip next summer (early, I know) I would like to get your recommendations.

Trip around 10-12 days for the first half of July so all attractions are open and experiencing the midnight sun (red??)

I am a solo traveller around 40 and base myself in Reykjavik taking guided tours from there:

- 2 days - Overnight tour to the south which includes: Day1: Seljalandsfoss, Skogafoss Waterfall, village of Vik and black sand beach, Jokulsarlon

Days 2: boat in Jokulsarlon Glacier Lagoon and walk on black sand shores. Also one hour long glacier hike in the Skaftafell area

Something like this one: https://www.extremeiceland.is/en/destinations/jokulsarlon-glacier-lagoon/glacier-lagoon

- 1 day - Super Jeep guided tour in landmannalaugar (want to hike some but not sure if will be there alone)

- 1 day – golden circle guided tour and blue lagoon

- 2 days – maybe take a flight to Westman island for: boat tour, bus tour, walking, see puffins (where?) and as seems a very scenic place just be there one night and next day take flight back (any point of boat+bus back?-

1 day – guided tour to Snaefellsnes Peninsula (how long from Reykjavik?)

- 0.5 day – Icelandic horse riding for 1-2 hours some green/mountain place.



Left around 2.5 days for other things missed (because of bad weather) or any other ideas?

I hope not too much sitting on a bus during tours and involves some easy hiking. I thought that a flight to Westman Iceland could save some more time in bus.

During evening explore Reykjavik.
