I will be traveling solo to Iceland in Nov 21 as this is something on my to do list.I understand that this is winter with shorter days.Some of the activities that I want to do apart for the glaciers,volcanoes etc is to check northern lights(if visible) ,try dog sledding, snowmobiling etc.I will be renting a car(2WD) and will be driving solo.I would like to avoid tours as am traveling on a budget.The only tour I am looking at is the cave tours on the last day if I cant do it by self.Below is the itinerary that I have come up with based on my online research.I would really appreciate on any inputs or modification that are required to the itinerary.Thanks again everyone .
