“My fiance and I are getting married in June and leaving for a honeymoon in Iceland a few weeks later. We've never been to Iceland before and would like to do a mix of traditional tourist-like stuff and maybe some off the beaten path stuff as well. We're both into hiking and the outdoors and want to make that and the scenery the focus of our trip, although we'd probably a couple of days in the city to try and do the food/nightlife thing. We're sort of vacillating between doing the west and south in a bit of detail vs. trying to do an abbreviated version of the Ring Road. I think we're leaning toward the former.
A handful of things we'd be interested in doing: (1) a couple of days in Reykjavik, (2) the traditional tourist stuff in the Golden Circle (Pingvellir National Park, Geysir, the Gullfoss waterfall, (3) geothermal pools, including the Blue Lagoon, (4) the Snaefellsnes Peninsula, including the national park, (5) heading inland a bit and seeing the Langjokull Glacier and ice cave, (6) maybe heading a bit further South and seeing the waterfalls/volcanoes in the south/southeast
We're really open to suggestions and know we can't possibly fit all of that in during our time in Iceland, but want to find the right balance between leisure and making the most of our trip.”
