We arrive at on october 29th at 10pm and plan to hire a car with gps from the airport. We will check the aurora forecast but hopefully stop on route to reykjavik to view the NL. Are there any particularly nice spots between the airport and reykjavik worth stopping at to try and see the lights?
The next day after a slow start we plan to spend walking around the old town part of reykjavik and then taking an afternoon whale watching boat trip. In the evening we plan to enjoy a nice restaurant and if we have not seen the NLs yet and the forecast is good drive out of reykjavik to try and hunt the lights once more.
The next day we plan to drive the golden circle route at our own pace and spend evening inr reykjavik once again chasing the lights at night if we have not already seen them.
The following day we plan to spend a couple hours at the blue lagoon and the afternoon and evening in reykjavik.
We fly home early the next morning.
Any advice or suggestions?
Should we try and see Skogafoss as part of the golden circle trip or tag it on to the morning trip to the blue lagoon?
Are there any remote but beutiful villages worth stopping at?
