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

We are just back from an absolutely fantastic 14 days in Iceland. We wanted to do a self-drive tour around the entire country and Guide to Iceland put together an itinerary for us and booked us a different hotel for each night of our trip except for one place (Stykkisholmur), where we stayed for two nights so that we could explore more of the region. We also pre-booked three tours through Guide to Iceland (Solheimajokull Glacier Hiking, Jokusarlon Zodiac Tour and Under the Volcano Tour) and they were all really fantastic experiences. The car rented through MyCar was great, the GPS was highly appreciated, and the driving was pretty easy. The most dangerous thing on the roads are the other tourist drivers who are so awestruck by the views that they randomly cross the centreline while they are looking around! The hotels were all terrific, comfortable and clean. Each time we had a hotel near the water we had a room with a water view. The breakfasts each day were just right. The buffets had something for everyone, and it was possible to have a hearty protein-filled breakfast that would carry you through the day. Most days we skipped lunch. The only glitch that threatened our itinerary was the cancellation of our afternoon Under the Volcano Tour when the weather deteriorated on our final days. We were promptly notified of the change by Guide to Iceland by email the night before and that gave us time to change our booking to a morning tour and to rearrange our driving time the following day so that we could make the earlier time slot. Thanks to Guide to Iceland, we didn't miss this Under the Volcano opportunity that we were so looking forward to. It was a fantastic holiday, well organized by Guide to Iceland, They provided us with so much good clear information about our itinerary before our trip that we were able to enjoy every moment of every day fully informed about where to go and what to see. I highly recommend using Guide to Iceland to organize your Iceland adventure. We had a fantastic time.
