Hello, need some advice from the experts. This is our (family of 5 with 3 kids, ages 9-13) first time going to Iceland and I'm having a little trouble trying to figure out our routes and what regions to stay in just yet.
For Day 1 we will be staying in Rejkajavik in the center of the city and then
Day 2 will be heading to the Golden Circle.
On Day 3 we plan to head to Vik.
My question is where should we stay on day 2 while we are spending our day touring the Golden Circle and then plan to head out to Vik on day 3. I read a suggestion that for day 2 to take a different way back to Reykjavik and stop at Kerio crater, so should I be staying at the center of Reyjajavik on day 2, back track and keep the same hotel that I booked in Reykjavik for day 1?
For day 5 we plan to go from Hofn to the East Fjords. We would like to see Seyoisfjordur and the famous Dettifoss, where should we stay on Day 5 if that is the plan and we are heading out to East Fjords to Lake Myvatan? We are staying in Seyoisfjordur on day 5 for now, is that doable or do you think we should stay somewhere near Dettifloss?
Day 6 and 7 we will be doing East Fjords to Lake Myvatn.
Day 7 is all day at Lake Myvatn - staying in Lake Myvatn area.
Day 8 we will be doing Akureyri and Siglufjoour. Where on day 8 should we stay? I booked a place in Akureyri but not sure if we should stay in Siglufjoour instead.
Day 9 and 10 we head to Siglufjorour to Stykissholmur and staying in Hvammstangi.
Day 11 heading to the Snaefellsness Peninsula.
Any advice much appreciated!!
Thank you in advance.
