Last September, we took Iceland Air‘s brilliant option for a week stopover to visit this mysterious country. Iceland is a destination growing in popularity due to it’s newly (relatively) affordable currency.
I am a bit of a glutton and decided to try and drive the entire ring road around the country in seven days. It would be better to drive the ring road in 10 days. Despite this, we have no regrets.
The scenery in Iceland is constantly changing and a dream for a photographer. The moody skies and colourful grasses in Fall were just heavenly. Many hotels and B&Bs have their own thermal hot tubs to soak in after a day’s driving.
We tend to gravitate towards the less touristy areas. Iceland is perfect for fidning yourself in the wilderness. There’s so much to see!
Here’s our itinerary, prioritizing the best of Iceland on a budget including cliffs next to the sea, icebergs, and countryside. Also keep in mind this is an autumn itinerary. In the Spring, make sure to take advantage of some of the best birdwatching in the world.
