Please help with 9 days in Iceland

Jump to last reply

Fodorites, looking for your help as always.
We will have 8 full days in Iceland in year July (arrive on Saturday early in the morning, and leaving the following Sunday, in the afternoon).
We would like to do the Ring Road.
First, I would like you suggestions on whether to go with Self Drive package from a tour company or DIY.
We normally do DYI, and it seems I can do cheaper than a package, but wondering if piece of mind (24 hours road assistance, itinerary planned, etc) are worth extra money.

Second, here is what I think so far for DIY, and booked some accommodations accordingly. What are your thoughts? Unfortunately, it is hard to find accommodations already.
1. Day 1(early arrival) – not sure what to do. Blue Lagoon/Reykjavik? I would rather not go to Reykjavik right away. It would be nice to go somewhere to the south of Reykjavik, to relax, walk around, and convenient to start the Ring Road next day.
2. Day 2 – Vik
3. Day 3 – Hofn
4. Day 4 - Egilsstaðir town
5. Day 5 - Lake Mývatn (do not have a good hotel option here, everything is booked)
6. Skagafjörður area (need suggestions for accomodations here)
7. Þingvellir park area (Hotel IOH)
8. Golden Circle, Reykjavík
9. Blue lagoon, fly home
