Drive around and relaxing nature trip in Iceland

  Group of 3 visited Iceland in August 2017

“Return date can be little bit flexible. Can also consider a car with a driver/guide. Four or five star hotels. We have traveled extensively in Europe and Asia . This is first trip to Iceland. Usually we do not prefer to drive but have heard in Iceland it is a must.”

Chris McCarty, a local specialist from Iceland, helped this traveler put together a customized itinerary based on Iceland Off The Beaten Path: A 10-day Escape to the West and North.

Hi, welcome to kimkim!

Thank you for contacting us to help you with your travel plans to Iceland this summer, we would be happy to connect you with one of our local specialists who can work with you to make sure that you have a great experience in Iceland.

Driving yourselves will definitely give you a bit more flexibility. I will attach an idea for a 10-day driving tour of the north and west of Iceland so that you can see what that would be like (I recommend avoiding the south coast in summer as it will be quite crowded.).
