In the 4th episode of Circling Iceland we use Reykjavik as our home base and took on the challenge to do as much as possible in 48h – so we start very early each day to make the most our of it. Our goal is to show you the best things to do in Reykjavik one day and the best sights along the golden circle the other day.
By using the daylight to the max (only doable from late spring – early autumn!) and part of the night we were able to squeeze in even some extra activities in the Highlands, a festival and some Hot Springs. Please be aware that we planned this itinerary way ahead with the help of locals: we had a tough, very strict schedule in order to make it happen in 48h- if you want to do the same we recommend to take 2 more days to be able to enjoy it!!
Come with us as we explore the center of Reykjavik with its many sights, the nightlife, the blue lagoon and the best sights along the golden circle!
Even though we finished our trip this won’t be the last episode – in the upcoming episode we talk about everything you need to know about traveling Iceland yourself!
Traveling Icelands Ring Road is the perfect way to get to know the country on and off the tourist paths. Therefore we took about 2 weeks to get to know Iceland properly by exploring waterfalls, canyons, hot springs, glacier caves, black beaches and of course the stunning coastlines all around the island finishing off in Reykjavik with the countries biggest music festival called „Iceland Airwaves“
We’ll show you which places to visit & our favorite things to do in Iceland in the upcoming videos and how to plan & organize your very own road trip in Iceland. Make sure to subscribe & activate notification to not miss any episode!

— About our Cooperation with SadCars & Oddsson —
We partnered up with a local car rental company called http://www.SadCars.com who offer some of the best deals for travelers looking into renting a camper or road trip vehicle. For this the folks at SadCars provided us with a Dacia Duster for the period we did the Ring Road and the Golden Circle route.
In order to show you several accommodation options you can find in Iceland I teamed up with http://www.oddsson this time who let me stay in their ubercool suite in Reykjavik.
Nevertheless all opinions, recommendations and views are my own.
