I am travelling to Iceland next month with my wife and I need some help. My biggest confusion is whether to do a self drive tour around the island or a private company tour. I am concerned that if I do a self drive tour I could miss out on local knowledge and I could miss out on places which tour guides could take us to which are off the beaten track.
Can anyone recommend a good tour guide who can do a tour for us for 4 days so we get to see all the main sites in Iceland plus a bit more, for a reasonable price?
How easy are the self drive tours around the Island?
We are flying to Reykjavik, so we were thinking to stay here as a base – is that a good idea, or do you think it would be better for us to move around?
We will be there on 25th April – I have read that Iceland celebrate this date as the first day of summer. Is Reykjavik the best place to be during this festival? Can you provide information on what happens on this day? Also will most tourist sites be closed on this date?
We are open to any suggestions and really appreciate your help.
