Travel end of November 2017 with two teenagers

travelredhead
Hello.
New to this forum.
I'm travelling with my two teens to Iceland at the end of this November for 5 days.
I've done research and still have questions.  Any help is appreciated!
I know road conditions are potentially hazardous.  
I know many activities are closed.  We like to do outdoor activities. Perhaps not the best time to visit Iceland but I had to see the Aurora.
 
Here are my questions:
1.  Place to stay.  4 nts, 5 days.  Do we stay in an apt or a hotel?  Would love to have free breakfast bc the kids eat a ton.  Do we stay in Reykjavik or 5 miles away (seems to have apts there).
2.  Do we need to get our own car?  Thus far, I'd like to do the Blue Lagoon, hike a glacier, a dogsled, see the Aurora.  Any other suggestions?  I don't want my kids to be bored.  We're pretty active.
Is it better to do tours on these or go with a company?
Many thanks in advance.  The more information, including links, the better!

Hello travelredhead,

November is a great month to see Northern Lights.

1.  Place to stay.  4 nts, 5 days.  Do we stay in an apt or a hotel?  Would love to have free breakfast bc the kids eat a ton.  Do we stay in Reykjavik or 5 miles away (seems to have apts there).

If you rent a car 5 miles away is okay. I´d say guesthouse or hotel.

2.  Do we need to get our own car?  Thus far, I'd like to do the Blue Lagoon, hike a glacier, a dogsled, see the Aurora.  Any other suggestions?  I don't want my kids to be bored.  We're pretty active.

I recommend you to rent a car and then make the day tours on your own. It would be much cheaper.


Best regards,
