We are heading to Iceland for six days at the end of July. And we're having a hard time choosing which direction to head. So some advice would be greatly appreciated.
We plan to spend the first day in REK (we arrive very early) and then from there, we're torn! Is it feasible to do a day trip to the West coast - explore the Snaefellsnes Peninsula - from REK or is it more logical to find a place to stay there?
Some of the places in the West Fjords - like Isafjordur - sound amazing. Is it doable to reach there from the Snaefellsnes region, explore, and then head down to Pingvellir or some place to do the Golden Ring the next day?
We also love the sound of loads of places in the South and southeast. Is it feasible to reach Hofn and make it back to REK in two days?
Any advice on how to work in the West and the south/southeast, would be greatly appreciated!
We tend to travel with "loose" itineraries but I think in this case, we need to be a bit more efficient with our time.!
Thanks for the help,
