As I knew absolutely nothing about Reykjavik I started researching things to do. I soon came to realise however that there was so much more to Iceland than Reykjavik.
After finally convincing hubby and a lot of late night searching and pinning onto google maps, our 2 week road trip around Iceland was born.
Fast forward to April 2017 and the adventure finally begins!
Only one thing really majorly changed from the original budget. We ended up renting a 2WD car rather than a 4×4 due to the cost. Everything else was pretty much as planned, no nasty surprises!
So without further ado, lets find out how much it actually costs to road trip in Iceland for 2 weeks in April.
Iceland does have a network of bus routes but these only run regularly from June to mid September. There aren’t any trains to get you around and taxis would be mega expensive.
If you want to explore the beauty of Iceland your only real option will be to hire a car.
Waterfalls, geysers, canyons, glacier lagoons, hot springs, lava fields, fjords… why would you not want to visit this enchanting place?
Last September me and hubby took a road trip taking in the best California has to offer. Below is our exact itinerary with slight tweaks to make it even better for you. If I had the chance to do it again this would be it!
