Skaftafell without a guide

Jump to last reply

Hello,

My husband and I are planning a stopover in Iceland in March 2016. We are only going to be there for 3 days. We will be based in Reykjavik.

I was wondering if it is reasonable, for a day trip, to head to Vatnajokull Park (Skaftafell area) and do a self guided hike. I have read that there is a visitor center there and have read about hikes such as to Svartifoss, Skaftafellsjokull, and the Skaftafellshedi loop. Obviously we would have to have a plan B if weather wasn't right.

Has anyone done this? Any tips? We are both in good shape, decent hikers. Would doing it this way make for nice scenery, or is it better off to go with a tour? Also, is there any public transportation from Reykjavik to Vatnajokull Park or do you have to drive.

Thanks in advance for answering!

Andrea
