What people say

"Spending your night at Reykjavík Campsite sets you up for a great day of exploring in Reykjavík the next day. The campground is open all year round with a capacity of around 600 travelers in tents, campers and caravans. "
"*Reservation is required in advanced, I would do months in advanced because this can fill up quickly. Laundry on site (Krona or card) and pool nearby. Tighter quarters than other campsites"
"Camping ground in the city so you can explore as much as possible. From here it is about 45 min drive to Keflavik airport"

Iceland is one of my favorite places in the world and I'm excited to share this itinerary, which covers everything you need to have the most perfect week traveling the Ring Road. Plus I've included details about an off-the-beaten-path destination located in the center of the island, which was the highlight of my trip. I explored Iceland by van and I believe it is the absolute best way to maximize your time on the island. Van travel saves you money since your accommodations, transportation (and meals if you decide to cook in your van) are all in one! To travel the Ring Road in just a week, you'll need to be prepared to drive a lot (a few hours each day), but you'll see a lot as well! If you're looking to hike, experience great Icelandic restaurants, be adventurous, and see the best parts of Iceland in 7-days, then this itinerary is for you. Destinations covered: 📍Partial Golden Circle 📍Þingvellir (Thingvellir) National Park 📍Skógar 📍Vík 📍Skaftafell 📍Höfn 📍Seydisfjordur 📍Lake Mývatn 📍Akureyri 📍Reykjavík 📍BONUS: Off-the-beaten-path destination (my favorite part of Iceland) Recommendations included in the itinerary: ✔️Hikes ✔️Restaurants ✔️Two tours ✔️Van rental information ✔️Campsite information ✔️Easy van meal ideas ✔️Local tips and general Iceland information ✔️Packing list to make van life seamless *This itinerary was created for someone looking to travel to Iceland between May-September.

I first visited Iceland 3 years ago after getting an internship out of nowhere. And since then I been coming back year after year discovering the country more and falling in love even deeper. Iceland is the crazy combination of fire and ice, pure nature, crazy landscape and unbelievably welcoming people. Friends and family always asked me for recommendations and like that, I eventually came to make this 4-day itinerary that I'd like to share with you. It's perfect if you are on a tight schedule but still want to make the most out of it The itinerary is with renting a camper or a car in mind. If you want to travel to Iceland without a car check out my other guide on car-free and budget Iceland. You can do it solo or with as many people as you can fit in a car. You can either choose a budget version with camping or be more comfortable with apartments on the way. For example, if you were to travel with a friend the cheapest option would be renting 4x4 and camping with your own tents. What you'll find in this guide ✔️Day-to-day itinerary ✔️Recommendation for car rental ✔️Recommendation for activities ✔️Budget estimate for different styles (camping, camper van, hostels, hotels) ✔️Accommodation recommendations for camping grounds What you won't find in this guide ✖️Recommendations for restaurants (depends on your taste and budget)
