Iceland : Reykjavik >> Reykjanes >> Highlands >> South >> East >> North >> Westfjords >> West .  Dates -Mid August - Customize Road Trip

 

 

  • It’s a Backpacking - Camping - Road trip - The plan is to drive around the beautiful country, explore the natural beauty in the most natural way by camping in wild or sleeping in mountain cabins or stay at a backpack hostel or just pitch a tent wherever applicable. 

 

  • The trip is a mix of little of everything in Iceland starting from the capital city then exploring the geothermal region , further moving on  and exploring the beautiful south of country where you have gorgeous waterfalls and glaciers then heading to Highlands - known as untamed beauty only if words could speak beauty, going slow stopping wherever you want, then heading to the East we explore the coast side of country later heading to North where you get urban feel of the country again, wait lots more coming now we are heading to the best-kept secret of Iceland and that's West Fjord's - One word Magnificent - You need to a big dreamer or just throw your imagination far - that's Iceland , later we head to the west part of country spend some leisure time and then drive back to the capital where we end the trip by a small party - If you feel all of this and want to be part of this - You need to come onboard.

 

  • The trip is tuff as it is a very big road trip and would involve camping in wild, sleeping in mountain cabins, driving and lot more.

 

  • This trip is an experience in itself which comes once in a life - Iceland - Nature at it's purest.

 

  • The budget to be kept in mind should be around 2,00,000 INR. The trip cost would be dynamic and can vary with time as per bookings will be done.

 

  • You would be driving from Reykjavik to Reykjavik - the car would be fully equipped for summer driving - A special focus on safety, halts, accommodations, food, hours of driving every day, route and lot more research will be shared with you so that you equally participate in this trip like a traveler.
