There are 7 persons and we are looking to rent a vehicle and hike in these areas. 5 of the people will be in Iceland until 8/9. Two of us have to break away and head back to Reykjavik Airport the morning of 8/4 to fly to Greenland. The two would like to spend as much time as possible with our friends and get in a good hike before driving back to the Airport.
Does anyone have any knowledge on the distance of these areas from the capital and which are would it make more sense to start and also the type of vehicle to rent.
Areas we hope to hike
Akureyri and surrounding region National Park hikes
Below Vatnajokull icecap
Any help is so appreciated. I hope all this makes sense.
