Iceland Trip in August: Nature, Relaxing. Water, Hot springs

  Group of 2 visited Iceland in August 2016

“I have never been to Iceland. I am not sure where to go, where to stay, what to see and do. I would love a plan that gives us the highlights in 5 - 7 days. We want to see natural beauty, maybe hike one day and relax by water. We also heard great things about hot springs.”

Btw do you have some sense of a budget? What kind of hotels would you prefer? Luxury? Boutique? Basic?

Traveler

Basic is fine, just not too basic. We don't have a set budget, but we don't need luxury.

Traveler

Sounds good. Bjorn will be able to suggest something for you. Expect him to join the conversation here within 24 hours

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!

Just so you know a lot of accommodation in Iceland is already sold out for the summer but I will do my best to find you the best value available.
Are you thinking about doing a self drive or would you like to join guided excursions?

Traveler

This is a last minute idea for us. We would do self drive. I am looking for something that involves a little relaxation with some exploring. I know it is last minute. Any help would be helpful. Thank you

Bjorn

What I will do is that I will make you a quote with estimated prices to give you an idea about how this could look like. The final price might not be clear until we start checking availability and making the booking arrangements. But like I said I will of course strive to find you the best value accommodation. Hope that sounds good.

Bjorn

Hi, A very rough estimate for 6 nights at 3* hotels, a rental car for 5 days and airport transfer could be around 3.400 USD. It could be more and it could be less depending on whats available and what price we can get you each time. I would set up a plan that would have you stay 2 nights in Reykjavik and 4 nights in the countryside. Please let me know if you want to move forward with this as soon as possible.
