We're planning for a 9-day trip to Iceland this September 1st/2nd week. Any suggestions would be really helpful ! We're planning to rent a car for the trip duration.
Day-1: Land in Reykjyavik and explore Reykjavik local attractions.
Day-2: Golden circle & stay in Reykjavik
Day-3: Seljalandfoss, Sólheimasandur Plane Crash, Skogafoss - stay near Vik or Skaftafell?
Day-4: Jokulsarlon and Skaftafell/Svartifoss - this is possible in say 6 hours? Stay near Reykjavik or Hella or Vik?
Day-5: Dyrholaey, Reynisfjara Beach - stay near Reykjavik
Day-6: Hvitserkur, Glymur , Buri caves - Stay near Reykjavik. Are these places a good idea or should we do what I am doing on Day-7 and stay somewhere near Kirkjufell?
Day-7: Snaefesjokull, Kirkjufell - Stay near Reykjavik
Day-8: Buffer day/Golden circle repeat/Anything else - Stay in Reykjavik
Day-9: Have time till 8 PM at which time I have to return car in Keflavik airport, any suggestions welcome :)
Based on this itinerary do I need to rent a 4X4?
Thank you !
