I rented a car and drove the ring road. I stayed in AirB&Bs all the way around. My sister came with me. I got a WiFi hotspot for the rental car so we had signal everywhere (costly, but gave us peace of mind). We made it a rule that if either of us wanted to stop, we did, which was awesome and we saw some really cool things because of it. We packed peanut butter and flour tortillas because we heard the food was crazy expensive, it was a great snack/ lunch we had everyday while walking all the waterfalls and landscapes.

Iceland is incredible. I rented a car and used Reykjavik as a home base and did day trips from there. Did the Golden Circle (so many tours busses to use if you don’t have a car), Iceland’s southern coast, Blue Lagoon- amazing and in my opinion 100% worth it, and also did horseback riding with Icelandic horses.

I’ve been to Iceland twice. It’s incredible. I stayed right in Reykjavik (a hostel in town), I signed up for tours, so I was picked up, and everything was included. I found this much easier than trying to navigate the country myself.

I went in the middle of Oct. It was fantastic and we saw the lights. Driving is super simple and safe. I was based in Reykjavik and did full day trips out. I highly recommend the snaefellsnes peninsula. So much to see and do. Lots of things are very expensive so shopping at the grocery store like Bonus is a great way to save money by making your own lunch. There are landmark signs (they are blue & white) on the roads and suggest pulling off there because there is something pretty cool there. We got to see a glacier by doing that.

I went to blue lagoon, northern lights trip, golden circle and south coast with beautiful Black Beach. I wasn’t a big fan of booking trips before but now I think it’s good to have a guide that tells you stories on the way, you can learn interesting facts. I recommend the Maritime Museum and be careful where you shop, some supermarkets are really expensive.
