Hi Willem, happy to help

Alex

Just to confirm, is this fir Sept. 2017?

Traveler

yes thats right

Alex

No problem, either way, just wanted to get a sense of where you were at in terms of planning

Alex

Happy to help put a trip plan together so you can see what your options are

Traveler

yes, thats right, I always prepare my holidays long time before, so that I can prepare things

Alex

Makes sense

Alex

Best would be for me to connect you to one of our local experts in Iceland who will be able to put a sample itinerary together for you based on what you're looking for

Traveler

Yes, thats ok, could you do this by email

Alex

We prefer to keep the conversation on our platform so we can all access it, would that be ok? Otherwise, no problem if it's easier to switch to email.

Traveler

Have a nice day, see your e-mail tomorrow

Alex

How this works, is, you can close the website now, and you'll receive an email notification once you have a new message - does that work for you?

Traveler

Yes it does

Alex

I'm going to connect you to Bjorn, one of our local experts in Iceland:

Traveler

Thank you

Alex

Expect to receive an email notification in a couple days from us with a new message

Alex

You're welcome, have a good sleep and will be in touch

Hi, nice to meet you.

My name is Bjorn and I am a Iceland travel expert at kimkim. I am born and raised in Iceland and I know my country well by experience.
I am very happy to assist you in planning your Iceland adventure!

First of all I am very impressed by your advance in your travel planning. It is good to have plenty of time to prepare.

2 - 3 weeks will give you a plenty of time to explore Iceland. The earlier in September might be better in regards to weather. Believe it or not we might already be getting snow and frost in some parts of the country in September.
We do not recommend people to go on their own to explore the center of Iceland but there are planned excursions you could join.

Before I start putting together a quote for you do you have an approximate budget idea in mind you could share with me? That way I know how much we can include and what your options for accommodation are.

Traveler

Hello Bjorn,
Nice to meet you too. I'm orienting myself on the possibilities of a two or three week trip to Iceland. I did look around different providers of trips, and till now I think it would be nice to drive to Hirtshals and take to boat to Iceland. From there I would like to see the highlights of Iceland and stay in hotels. An in between trip with a 4 x 4 to the center of the island. Our budget is about 6000 euro.

Bjorn

Ok great. So you would bring your own car and go on a 4x4 tours to the highlands in the center.
I will start working on some ideas for you and send you a quote as soon as it is ready.
Have a nice weekend!

Bjorn

Let me know if you have any questions in the mean time.

Traveler

OK, thanks!

Bjorn

Hi Willem how are you today?

Attached is a quote I put together for you based on your wishes.
Note that the quote depends on available accommodation which we haven´t checked yet. I roughly estimated the hotel prices but they might be lower since there is a good notice and availability for good value should still be good.

This plan would have you travel the whole ring around the country and spend 3 days in the highlands in and around Landmannalaugar (or another tour that goes to Hveravellir) in a guided 4x4 tour and spend the nights in mountain huts. There is also an option for a 5 day self drive tour on a 4x4 in the highlands but that would take the price up to around or just over 9.000 EUR. It does however include some meals. Let me know if you would like to consider that.

Once we have an accepted quote from you we will move forward with your travel planning, start checking for available accommodation and once the deposit has been made we will provide you with all necessary information and a detailed Itinerary.
During your travel in Iceland we will be at your disposal the whole time and you will be able to contact us anytime you need.
Please take a look at this and let me know what you think and if you have any questions.
