It´s a bold move to decide to do the whold Iceland in one 10 days tour. The challenge one is faced with when planning a travel like this one is that you want to see and experience as much as possible and drive as little as possible.
We´ll see all of the south coast attractions, see here, and the east, north and west coasts of Iceland.
We´ll travel the many and beautiful fjords of the East Coast, visit the stone museum at Stöðvarfjörður, the French hospital in Fáskrúðsfjörður and stop for the many photo opportunities on the way. We´ll head to Egilsstadir city, the “capital” of East-Iceland and from there we drive inwards, the long valley of Jökuldalur to our remote accommodation.
We start our journey towards Myvatn with all its beautiful surroundings, moutains in all colours, geothermal spa and the lake itself: the home to every bird living in Iceland. We´ll visit Dimmuborgir, Námaskarð as well as the Myvatn Nature baths.
On our way to Akeyri city we stop at Dettifos waterfall and Goðafoss waterfall, Dettifoss being the most powerful waterfall in Europe. On Akeyri you have to opportunity to go on a whale watching tour.
We leave Akureyri and continue to Siglufjörður on the tip of the Eyjafjörður fjord, but on the way we make a stop at the Kaldi brewery wher you can have a bath in beer! We´ll enjoy the Siglufjordur town, visit the Heering museum, go with the snow cat to the top of Olafsfjardarmuli mountain to have a unique view over a big portion of the north side.
From Siglufjörður we start our journey to the south to enter the west part of Iceland.
We drive to Stykkishólmur for a boat trip between the many islands in the Breiðafjörður bay. The bay is home to many species of sea birds as well as the king of Icelandic birds: the eagle. We continue to Mountain Kirkjufell, the most photographed mountain in Iceland (try to google it!) and from there along the north side of the Snæfellsnes peninsula to Lóndrangar and the two small fishery towns of Hellnar and Arnarstapi. You can have a nice walk between the two cities along the coast. We go to the Víðgelmir volcanic cave and Into the glacier ice tunnel in to Langjökull glacier on our way to Reykjavík where we´ll close the circle.
