South Iceland Base

Hi --

A friend and I will be in Iceland for a week in late March. We are planning to book a place through Airbnb as a base for exploring the South for three days. Rentals that we like are listed for the following locations:

Floahreppur
Vik
Laugarvatn
Selfloss
Olfus

Any advice on which location would be most ideal for exploring Southern Iceland? Thank you.

We're planning on staying 3 nights at a B&B near Vik before heading back to Reykjavik for the last night of our stop-over.

I'm planning to go solo March 13 - 24. I haven't booked my accommodation yet, but was thinking about 2 nights in or around Höfn for Jökulsárlón and Skaftafell, and 1-2 nights in or around Vik for the other main areas of interest in South Iceland.

Yes, Hofn would be good for Jokulsarlon but we have only 3 nights in the south and decided Vik would be the best option. Also, we'll be there end May, with quite long daylight hours, roads too should be good, so we'll make a long day trip to Skaftafell and the glacier lagoon
