Based on 3 traveller reviews

Book this two-week tour of Iceland’s Ring Road and the Westfjords - the best that Iceland has to offer. Aside from the most popular areas in the country, you will zigzag through the remote regions, and see many charming, lesser known locations most visitors do not get the chance to. 

You'll travel in full comfort, even in the remote and wild Westfjords, always with private facilities and breakfast included at your accommodation. 

Many visitors come to Iceland to savour time in the fresh air, far from the busy metropolis, and to take in the magnificence of this country's landscapes without the crowds. As such, Guide to Iceland will provide you with a custom itinerary after you book, allowing you to escape back to nature and discover places most have never heard of. With accommodation in the best locations, you can enjoy Iceland to the fullest. 

Not only this, however, but you will also see all the famous sights you've heard of; this tour includes a trip around the Golden Circle, along the beautiful South Coast, to the Jökulsárlon glacier lagoon, and a ticket to the Blue Lagoon spa is included within the price. This way, you get to experience a perfect blend of Iceland's most popular destinations, and its least known secrets. 

You can add extra activities during booking so that you won't miss any fun during your stay. As you pass through the Golden Circle, you can stop to snorkel on the Mid-Atlantic Ridge. If you're captivated by the glaciers, you can take a hike up one, descend into an ice cave on another or snowmobile across their ancient ice. You can spin around the glacier lagoon on a boat, or go sea angling or whale watching in the North. To take it easy, you can trail ride on an Icelandic horse or sail the coast in search of puffins. The opportunities are endless!

Daily itinerary

Day 1 - Arrival in Iceland, Car Ready at the Airport


14 Day Self Drive Tour | Circle of Iceland & The Westfjords


Your adventure starts straight away when you arrive at the airport in Keflavík. Pick up your car at the airport before driving through an otherworldly lava landscape to your accommodation in downtown Reykjavík. You can even decide to start your journey in Iceland by booking a visit to the Blue Lagoon on your arrival day; it's located very close to the airport, and is the perfect way to unwind after a long flight. You can, however, save this part of the trip for your return journey.

After settling in at your centrally located hotel in Reykjavík, make the most of your proximity to the vibrant city centre by exploring the abundance of museums, galleries, restaurants and bars.

When you are tuckered out, spend the night in the beautiful and quirky capital city.


Preferred accommodation in Reykjavík

Reykjavík Comfort

The Fosshótel chain has four 3-4 star Hotels located in and around the city center of Reykjavík. There is a short walk from all of the hotels to attractions, cafés, restaurants, museums and the nightlife. All offer private bedrooms with private bathrooms. Free Wi-Fi. Breakfast is included.

Day 2 - Thingvellir National Park - Geysers - Gullfoss Falls


14 Day Self Drive Tour | Circle of Iceland & The Westfjords


On day two, travel to some of the best-known natural phenomena in Iceland on the Golden Circle. The first stop is Þingvellir National Park, which is located right between the North American and Eurasian tectonic plates; you can literally walk between them. This is not Þingvellir's only appeal, however; it also played a huge role in Iceland's heritage, being the original site of the world's longest running, ongoing representative parliament, the place where it converted to Christianity in 1000 AD, and where it declared independence from Denmark in 1944. There is plenty to see as you walk around this UNESCO World Heritage Site, and the adventurous can also opt into an exhilarating snorkel here. 

The beautiful geothermal valley of Haukadalur is next, where you can see the geysers Strokkur and Geysir, amongst many steaming hot springs. While the more famous Geysir is largely inactive now, Strokkur erupts every ten minutes or so, to heights of over 20 m (66 ft).

The final stop on the Golden Circle tour is one of the most popular attractions in Iceland, the mighty Gullfoss waterfall. A pathway takes you right to the water's edge, where you can get a real sense of the enormous natural power of these 32 m (150 ft) tall falls. 

From Gullfoss, you can choose to go on an optional snowmobile tour on the nearby Langjökull glacier. You can also take the opportunity to ride an Icelandic horse, an essential Icelandic experience.

The crater lake of Kerið is also well worth a visit as you traverse the area. Take in the dazzling colours of the red-and-orange lava rock, the azure waters of the deep lake in its centre, and get a few photos before spending the night in the Hvolsvöllur area.


Preferred accommodation by Hvolsvöllur

Hvolsvöllur Comfort

Hotel Hvolsvöllur is a 3 star hotel centrally located in Hvolsvöllur. Private bedrooms with private bathrooms. Free access to outdoor hot tubs. Free Wi-Fi. Breakfast is included.

Day 3 - Waterfalls and Black-Sand Beach


14 Day Self Drive Tour | Circle of Iceland & The Westfjords


Head to the south coast on today's road trip and visit the majestic and mesmerising Seljalandsfoss and Skógafoss waterfalls. After these, you will see Sólheimajökull glacier, where you have the option to go glacier hiking and ice climbing or take an exhilarating snowmobile tour. From the village Vík, you can opt for an exciting ice cave tour to Mýrdalsjökull glacier. 

Along the coast near Vík, is the black volcanic coastline and the dramatic Dyrhólaey peninsula and Reynisdrangar rock formations. Just be sure to be very careful near this beach, as the waves and currents are powerful and unpredictable. This area has a large puffin colony during the summers, so try and spot some. 

More sights as you drive ahead include the magnificent Mýrdalsjökull glacier and the quaint, historic village of Kirkjubæjarklaustur. You will spend the night in either Kirkjubæjarklaustur or the Skaftafell area.

Day 4 - Skaftafell Nature Reserve - Jökulsárlón Glacier Lagoon


14 Day Self Drive Tour | Circle of Iceland & The Westfjords


Spend day four taking in the many beautiful vistas of the incredible Skaftafell Nature Reserve, within Vatnajökull National Park. 

If you enjoy hiking, you will find many trails here, tailored for all abilities, including one that leads to the beautiful Svartifoss waterfall, which cascades down unique, hexagonal basalt columns. You may also opt into an exciting glacier hike on this day on Skaftafellsjökull.

Do not spend all day here, however, as the the stunning Jökulsárlón glacier lagoon is the next stop. Here, you can see icebergs break from a glacier tongue and float serenely towards the ocean; it is a magnificent sight. If you wish to get closer, you can enjoy an optional boat ride that will take you right amongst them, with a choice between an amphibious vessel or a little zodiac. If you see any seals, give a whistle, and they may come closer to investigate the noise. They are often as curious about you as you are them.

Don't forget to have a look at the Diamond Beach, just by the ocean next to the lagoon. Chunks of ice in all shapes and sizes decorate the shoreline like a string of beautiful jewels, making for excellent photo opportunities.

Spend the night in Höfn.

Today you will experience rural Iceland in all its glory, visiting the idyllic villages, breathtaking fjords, and verdant fields of the east coast. Home to some of the most amazing wildlife in Iceland, including puffins, reindeer, foxes, and seals, the fjords invite you to take an up-and-down ride over the mountains as you explore one after the other. Each is incredibly beautiful, and has its own unique charm.

Waterfalls in hillsides and fantastic panoramic views will make your journey unforgettable. In the evening, you'll come to the town of Egilsstaðir, near Lagarflöt lake, which legends say hides a monster beneath its placid surface. Spend the night in Egilsstaðir or a smaller village nearby. 


Preferred accommodation by Egilsstaðir

Day 6 - Lake Mývatn Mysteries


14 Day Self Drive Tour | Circle of Iceland & The Westfjords


On day six, you'll visit Lake Mývatn. The lake itself is serene and beautiful, and its surroundings dramatic and unique. There is a lot to see, but it is recommended that you prioritise the hot spring cave of Grjótagjá, the Dimmuborgir lava fields (known as 'the Dark Fortress'), and the nature baths.

A drive through the Jökulsárgljúfur part of Vatnajökull National Park to visit the Ásbyrgi canyon and the impressive Dettifoss waterfall is also highly recommended, and the mud pits at Krafla are a sight to behold.

Another great option is to join a whale watching tour at the nearby village of Húsavík, renowned as the whale-watching capital of Europe. You can upgrade this to include a puffin watching segment as well. After you have finished your activities for the day, you'll cross over to Eyjafjörður fjord to the town of Akureyri, where you will stay the night.

If you'd like a closer look at the local flora in nature, you could opt into a riding tour along the coast of the fjord on this morning. Otherwise, if you missed the whale watch the day before, you can take one from here.

Continuing towards Skagafjörður, a valley known for its abundance of Icelandic horses, you will also pass through the beautiful, mountainous area of Tröllaskagi.

The Icelandic Sorcery and Witchcraft Museum in Hólmavík and the Sorcerer’s Cottage, in Bjarnarfjörður, only 25 km away from Hólmavík, are well worth a visit, especially for those who love folklore and history. Also, consider taking an extra soak in the natural hot springs at Drangsnes.

Here you will find some of the oldest mountains in Iceland, dating back to 18 million years ago. Be sure to look in the waters as you drive, as this is one of the best places in Iceland to see whales feeding from the shore.

You may also wish to drive to nearby Bolungarvík and visit the Ósvör Maritime Museum - a great way to see what life was like for Iceland’s fishermen in years gone by. When you reach Ísafjörður, enjoy the town's quiet, isolated charm.

Next, stop at the magnificent Dynjandi, a stunning series of fast-moving waterfalls that cascade down the face of a massive cliff. After marvelling at this wonder, head to the spectacular 444 m (1,457 ft) high cliff of Látrabjarg, arguably the westernmost point of Europe.

Average rating 5 / Number of reviews 3

We had an epic 17 days in iceland, travelling from Australia we wanted to really explore this place. Guide to Iceland helped plan and organise for us as a self drive tour during our whole stay which also included tours that we wanted to do as well. Communication was excellent right from the beginning and my husband and I were able to shape our trip and customize for particular things we wanted to see as well as excellent suggestions from Guide to Iceland. I must say that Unnar Helga our contact was amazing and very helpful both during the planning and whilst we were doing our trip. The accommodation provided for us was fantastic (albeit two locations but this is minor and doesn't detract from the rating). Driving around was super easy (although would have been better had the GPS maps been updated) and we came well prepared ensuring we knew the roads we could or could not take. Doing the self drive is really the way to go, the road conditions are fine if you ensure you follow the road advice that is easily accessed via the web as well as the friendly staff at the hotels. Just chat to them and they will give some great advice. The ability to drive yourself enables you to avoid the large crowds but also get off the beaten track and really explore at your own pace. Having everything organised via Guide to Iceland was really great as well and I didn't have to spend hours on research and dealing with many different bookings it was all taken care off. Thanks Guide to Iceland and Unnar Helga we had a wonderful time and will cherish this trip and the memories we have taken away.

My wife and I had the most amazing time in Iceland. I have fallen in love with your country! You probably have heard that many times. The travel was enjoyable, there was so much to take in ... we ran out of time every day. There was not a single day that we were not struck with awe. The vehicle ran great was comfortable and never had any mechanical issues. If I had to point out one negative if any, was ... the GPS needed updated maps. When we come back, I will definitely use a physical map as well. We had a bit of difficulty finding our places to stay as we could not for half of the places, put them in our GPS, Google maps filled in those gaps using my phone, and if there would have been some additional info on the places of stay, that would have been better, but this was not a big deal but by the end of the day finding our place to stay would have been better to be able to find it easier. But as I said, this was not big deal. My wife and I will be planning to come back in a few years and do a Month stay so we can explore in greater detail the more remote places.
