    • 3-Day Itinerary in March - Feedback Appreciated

      Iceland Feb 23, 2017 at 11:39 PM

      Hi all!

      Going with my fiancee (in our mid-20s) for 3.5 days so I'd love to get some feedback on my itinerary!

      Basics:

      • We'll be renting a non 4x4 for this trip
      • Only planning to visit south Iceland given length of trip
      • Priority is on scenery and nature
      • Intention to take full advantage of sunlight
      • Love hiking, but understand some hikes may not always be appropriate given sporadic weather so prefer short hikes

      Needs:

      • Feedback on itinerary below
      • Considerations on timing due to season
      • Potential alternatives if weather doesn't cooperate
      • Possible food options during drives
