It’s been four years since our last Iceland road trip and we have another one coming up in October. I figured it was about time that I stopped procrastinating and started writing a blog post about our past itinerary while plotting the next one. It’s not a perfect itinerary and we did have to backtrack a couple of times, but it’s completely doable if you go between May and August and it allowed us to see a lot of Iceland. I wouldn’t recommend this itinerary for a winter trip because of the limited hours of daylight, potentially poor road condition, and tendency for sketchy weather.
We spent 13 nights on the road (and 2 nights in Reykjavik at the end of the trip) in May of 2013, driving the ring road anti-clockwise. We didn’t have enough time to visit the Westfjords, unfortunately. Someday we’ll get around to exploring the Westfjords and experiencing its wild and amazing landscapes first-hand. In the meantime, I’ll just keep dreaming about it. :-)
