Itinerary help - 6 days in Iceland in chilly November

Jump to last reply

My husband and I (both late 50s) are planning an early November trip to Iceland. We hope to see the Northern Lights, but we know that's a bonus and we can't count on it. Here's what we're thinking, but we need a LOT of help!

Day 1 - Arrive early morning on Friday, November 6, from U.S. and pick up rental car and tour Reykjavik. Spend night in Reykjavik. We're more interested in the outdoor sights, but we thought given our jet lag, it might be good to use this day to adjust to the time zone.

Day 2 - Saturday - Golden Circle - usual sights - Thingvellir National Park, the geysers at Haukadalur (Strokker), and Gullfoss waterfall. We have a room reserved at Hotel Selid near Hvolsvollur. Is it reasonable to be able to get there after the Golden Circle? We know the daylight hours are limited. Any special things not to miss? Good places to stop for lunch?

Then we have three more full days before flying home. We want to do:

- an ice cave tour
- a short glacier walk
- a 1-hour snowmobile tour

We'd also like to see the Jokulsarlon glacial lagoon and the black sand beach.

We currently have a hotel reserved in Vik (Icelandair Hotel Vik) for Sunday and Monday nights, and a an apartment in Reykjavik for the last night, Tuesday.

We thought we'd do the Blue Lagoon on Wednesday morning before our afternoon flight home.

Suggestions on the best order to do the tours (cave, glacier, snowmobile) and how to fit in other things we want to see? Is Vik an ok place to base ourselves for those two nights or should we try to move to Klauster (it's a much longer name than that, but you probably know what I mean)?

Where is the best place to do the activities we want? From my research it looks like there are different glaciers where we could do the snowmobiling and the glacier hike. Suggestions?

Also, we are on somewhat of a budget, so are trying to get good deals where possible.

Any and all suggestions welcome.

Thanks,
Karen and Tom
