Best place to camp/hike in Iceland????
Posted April 16th, 2013 - 9:23 pm by from Chilliwack, Canada (Permalink)
Hey Peoples! Me and a buddy of mine are coming to Iceland on May 14th and would like to get out and see a bit of the landscape, and are looking for ideas on what best to do... We arrive early Tuesday am, and are there until the following Monday. What i was planning is to rent a jeep from Tuesday, and return it Friday am, and then be in Reykjavik for Friday + Saturday night...

Where i need help is planning my Tuesday-Friday. I want to get out and see as much cool stuff in Iceland as I can, and maybe do a hike or two. The route i was semi planning so far was to hit the loop Tuesday, then drive up towards landmannalauger, and camp somewhere around there. Maybe do a couple hikes, and explore a bit the next day... From there was gonna cut down to the coast, and then cut back and check out skogar, and that other waterfall that begins with an s... maybe surf too? This is where i need some help... what would people recommend to see, where would best places to camp be? Any relatively short + easy hikes around that are worth checking out? We are both fit, and can do more difficult hikes, but keep in mind, any where we go, we will probably have at least a bottle of wine in hand... I dunno... any information you could give to help us out would be great! Muchly appreciated!!!!
