Hi, welcome to kimkim!
Are you really traveling November 11-17 or did you just enter those dates?
yes my wife and I are staying for a week
Ok, and you leave tomorrow?
Ok, what do you have planned so far?
Do you have any hotels or a car rental arranged already?
to go to see wild life and learn about the cultural experiences and lear about the place and no not at the moment
Ok, what time do you land and leave again?
If you are comfortable with guesthouses that have shared bathrooms, You can estimate around $100 USD/nt on average, and around $50 USD/day for a car rental
can we get more of a luxury if that's okay we are planning thiss for our honey moon
What about any other activities? For example: Northern lights tour, whale watching, glacier walk, ATV, lava caves?
we would like that thank you
Take a look at the couple example itineraries I sent and let me know which of those you like the most. From there I can customize it further and fit in some of those activities.
Once we settle on a final itinerary based on your feedback, as ask that you make a deposit of the kimkim service fee. Then we will make all hotel reservations, car rental, and book all activities and put together all the information for you in a guide with information about all the places you will visit and other sights/detours along the way.
okay thanks you I am looking at the links you send me and I like the unique ways to explore Iceland
Ok, which one of the options do you like? there are a few alternatives depending on exactly what parts of Iceland most interest you
all interest me but may I ask what would you choose for a romantic honeymoon
Do you land on Nov 11 or Nov 12?
Here's one option:
Day 1: Fly to Egilsstadir in the East Fjords, night in Seydisfjordur. Can go on hikes to waterfalls, see art sculptures by the water.
Day 2: Scenic Drive around fjords to Djúpivogur, walk around harbor and out to small lighthouse
Day 3: Jökulsárlón Glacier Lagoon and icebergs on Diamond Beach, hike to cool waterfall at Skaftafell (option for Glacier walk or ice climbing)
Day 4: Vik black sand beaches, cool rock formations, canyons, and waterfalls
Day 5: Golden Circle: relax in warm waters at Secret lagoon, Gullfoss Waterfall, Geysir Geothermal Area, Thingvellir National park (can go snorkeling between 2 continents at Silfra fissure)
Day 6: Reykjavik, nice dinner, nightlife. Great views from the tower of the church, Harpa cultural center, sun sculpture
Day 7: Breakfast in Reykjavik, Blue Lagoon before airport
That hits the highlights of the south, but the flight lets you skip a lot of driving the same way you drove out (also cool views from the sky)
The first 2 days will be pretty quite as there are fewer tourists in those areas, but they are very beautiful
okay thanks you for you time and the help :)
You're welcome are you interested in booking the trip? If so I can make all arrangements today, and list out some optional activities that you can add on.
Given the short notice for the trip, we would ask for a deposit as the kimkim service fee to continue and make all reservations for you. I can have them all done within the next few hours and will send you a packet with all the information you will need for the trip.
