Q & A
What would you have changed?
We stayed partly in AirBnB's and partly in hotels. For the next trip, I would recommend to choose a place to stay with a kitchen, or with access to a kitchen. Food in Iceland is quite expensive, especially eating out. If you bring some noodles, sauces, bread and bread spread, you can mainly cook for yourself and will definitely save some coins!
Anything go wrong during the trip?
Like I already said, weather conditions are extreme! You should always check the weather forecast for the next day so that you can prepare, wear the rights cloths and do the right activities
What tips would you give a friend?
When you see something nice out of the car, just take a turn and park somewhere near the street. We saw so many cute little waterfalls or just nice view points which were not even mentioned on Google Maps.
If you visit during winter, you should wear many layers! Layers will keep you warm and protect you from the wind. We also bought some rain coats beforehand which were super handy! A hat, scarf and some gloves will also help to keep you warm.
If you plan to see a lot from the island, you should go for a rental car. We did not rent a 4x4, because we only wanted to stay on the main road. However, the weather conditions in Iceland are tough and the winds are strong. Also, the main roads are not in perfect condition - sometime you wil just find gravel roads. Therefor I would suggest to go with some type of SUV, just to feel a bit more safe.
