I may have an opportunity to take time off from mid-late September and will allow me to do a 11 day/10 nights trip around Iceland. I really want to drive around the Ring Road and have consulted with farmholidays. is to get a general idea of an itinerary.
Reading through some previous threads, I noted that it is best to do the island counter clockwise.
Would really like your advice on towns to stay in or hotels/B&B/farm houses which you recommend. Below is an itinerary from farmholidays .is for a 11day/10 nights ring road drive. Please let me know your thoughts. There may be an opportunity to extend my stay for 1 day if you really think an area warrants a two night stay (right now only Húsavík/Mývatn has 2 nights)
Location denotes the overnight stop:
Day 1 - Gulffoss/Geysir (I will arrive the night before whereas my travel companion will arrive 6am of the first day)
Day 2 - Vík/Kirkjubæjarklaustur
Day 3 - Höfn
Day 4 - Egilsstaðir
Day 5 - Húsavík/Mývatn
Day 6 - Húsavík/Mývatn
Day 7 - Akureyri
Day 8 - Húnaflói/Skagafjörður
Day 9 - Snaesfellsnes
Day 10 - Reyjavik
Day 11 - Late afternoon departure
I know this may be silly question given the unpredictability of Iceland weather - do you think end of September weather still has a high chance of being enjoyable??
Thanks in advance for your input! I'll continue perusing through the old threads.
