hey everyone! would need your advice on my itinerary for 6 days.
Travel dates: 30 july - 6 August (7 days)
Arriving 30th july (early morning) and leaving 6 August (morning)

We are thinking of renting a car, and driving around. Does the following itinerary seem too ambitious (keeping in mind that we will have long days right?)

Day 1:
Thingvellir (Þingvellir) National Park
Geysir hot spring
Gullfoss Waterfall
Kerið Crater Lake

Stayover #1: Selfoss area

Day 2:
Waterfalls (Skogafoss/ Seljalandsfoss)
Drive along south coast to Dyrhólaey natural reserve/ Reynishverfi ( beautiful coast)
Continue across Mýrdalssandur floodplains and Eldhraun- Lava field
Skaftafell National Park- Oasis wedged between glacier and sand plains. Hiking trails : Svartifoss

Glacial Lagoon Jökulsarlón
(is it possible to hike on the glacier during this period? - Sólheimajökull Glacier)

Stayover #2: Hofn area

Day 3
Drive from Höfn to Lónsöræfi, continue to East Fjords.
Egilsstaðir – largest town in the East. Drive towards Lake Myvatn (nature baths?)
Make a detour to Dettifoss (largest waterfall in Europe)
Stop at Námaskarð pass- where boiling mud pools and flashing colors merge with lava and ash from the Krafla volcanic syste.
Stop at Dimmuborgir, the "Dark Castles"

Stay over #3: Húsavík town

Day 4:
Akureyri – largest town in the north (botanical gardens?)
Stop enroute at the beautiful waterfall Goðafoss, on road 1 cose to the junction with 85 at Fosshóll
Skagafjörður – Horse riding / water rafting . / Glaumbær Folk Museum / tiny old church at Víðimýri, close to Varmahlíð
Borgarfjörður District to see Deildartunguhver hot spring,
Beautiful waterfalls Barnafossar and Hraunfossar

Stayover #4:
Borgarnes area

Day 5:
Leave the Borgarfjörður district and head for the scenic and quiet Hvalfjördur fjord.
Back at Reykjavik - do a day tour? (ATV/ hiking/ caving?)

Day 6:
Spend another day at Reykjavik - day tour?

Day 7:
Head to airport in the morning

Please do let me know your thoughts! appreciate it!
