• THE 7-DAY ITINERARY: a jam-packed road trip around the perimeter of Iceland on the famous Ring Road, starting at the capital city of Reykjavik and ending at Keflavik International Airport south of the capital.
This trip is loaded with scenery: amazing waterfalls, otherworldly geothermal regions, wild, nearly uninhabited coastlines and vacant interiors, and dozens of glacial tongues descending from volcanoes (several active!) almost to the ocean. Expect 2 nights in Reykjavik, and 1- & 2-night stops in 3 or 4 other points along the way.
The 7-day itinerary is ideal for visitors with a week to explore Home At First‘s Iceland, and is readily combinable as a stop en route to/from Britain, Scandinavia, or the Continent. This trip can only be done independently by rental car. Driving days are typically 4.5 to 8 hours in length.
• THE 10-DAY ITINERARY: an expanded version of the 7-day itinerary following the Ring Road around Iceland, the 10-day itinerary covers the same ground but provides more leisure time to linger at stops en route or for activities like hiking, enjoying natural thermal spas, going whale watching, seeing the Northern Lights, exploring volcanic lava fields, caves, and calderas on foot, by overflight, or by special cross-country vehicles.
Starts at the capital city of Reykjavik and ends at Keflavik International Airport south of the capital with the possible thermal spa stop at the famous Blue Lagoon. Expect 2-3 nights in Reykjavik, and 1-, 2-, & 3-night stops in 3 or 4 other points along the way.
The 10-day itinerary is ideal for visitors who want to explore Home At First‘s ICELAND to experience the incredible scenery and enjoy activities in Iceland’s unique landscapes.
The 10-day itinerary is readily combinable as a stop en route to/from Britain, Scandinavia, or the Continent and can only be done independently by rental car.
