Just getting started planning a trip to Iceland; could use some input on my itinerary

Jump to last reply

DH and I have decided to go to Iceland this year! I'm very excited, as I have been wanting to go there for about 10 years. Unfortunately, we will probably only have a week to 10 days there, so I'm trying to keep the itinerary light. I have identified the South Coast and the Lake Myvatn regions as two areas that would probably hold a lot of interest for us. I am also kind of interested in the Snaefellsnes Peninsula. I don't want to try to tackle the entire Ring Road in a week because I want some time to hike at every location.

So, my question (after all that) is, if we wanted to see the following:

Reykjavik
Thingvellir
Geysir & Gullfoss
hiking around Thorsmork
Laki lava flows
Skaftafell Nat'l Park
Jokulsarlon iceberg lagoon

would that be enough to keep us occupied for a week? Would it be too much to try to tackle in a week? Should we try to fly up to Lake Myvatn for a couple of days as well? Our interests are hiking, geology and photography, and I know DH doesn't want to spend long stretches in a car. I want to fit in one horseback ride in there, and I was thinking that a boat ride at Jokulsarlon might be fun. DH is very interested in seeing a glacier and I'd be up for doing a guided glacier hike.

Thanks in advance for any input!
