Suggestions for 1 week for family in Reykjavik and Hotel Glymur

Jump to last reply

I am bringing a family of 5 (3 teens) to Iceland in late May. I think it is cheaper to rent a car for us, than to do individual tours.
I am having a difficult time discerning what is really a feasible drive for one day. Other than the city itself, and the Golden Circle area, can you tell me what it is possible to see/drive to in a day. We are staying half the time in Reykjavik and half at the Hotel Glymur because it just looks stunning.
Specifically, we are looking for beautiful natural scenery and a few firsts. As a family we have never been fishing, seen puffins, or viewed a glacier.
Suggestions would be most welcome.
Thanks, Staci
