Suggestion for The South Saga Trails in 3 to 4 days

The route crosses the mountains east of the capital area, where the largest agricultural lowland area of the country stretches eastwards.  After that the road continues closer to the south coast along the glacier/volcano Eyjafjallajokull.

The lush green Bog Valley (Myrdalur) is crossed to reach the country's southernmost village, Vik.  East of Vik outwash plains and lava fields are crossed to reach Kirkjubaejarklaustur, The National Park Skaftafell, The Glacial Lagoon and eventually the point of return, the fishing town Hofn.

Click the map for further information

Day 1: Reykjavik - Gullfoss/Geysir - Kirkjubaejarklaustur
Across the mountains to Hveragerdi to Selfoss, or over Mosfellsheidi plateau to Thingvellir National Park  then to Gullfoss waterfall, Geysir hot spring, and to one of the country's most important historic sites, Skalholt near hamlet Laugaras (other sights at the Fludir and Arnes/Thjorsardalur farmlands) and onwards to until the first overnight, at Hella,  Hvolsvollur Skogafoss Vik or Kirkjubaejarklaustur, is reached.

Day 2: Kirkjubaejarklaustur - Hofn
After visiting the Skaftafell National Park at the foot of the highest peak of the country, the tour continues to the Glacial Lagoon (possibly a glacier tour from Joklasel), and eventually to the next port of call, the fishing town Hofn,

Day 3: Hofn - Vik

It is ideal to visit a few places like Nupsstadur, Dverghamrar, Hjorleifshofdi and Kerlingardalur when backtracking to Vik, where an overnight is suggested, or drive back to Reykjavik.

Day 4: Vik - Reykjavik

It is impossible to pass the imposing waterfall Skogafoss and the remarkable Skogar Museum and the swimming pool at Seljavellir is tempting on our way to the waterfall Seljalandsfoss.  Then we continue to the town Selfoss and drop in at Eyrarbakki and Stokkseyri before returning passing Threngslin
plateau to Reykjavik.
