🇮🇸 Iceland Suggested Itinerary

Our family had the opportunity to visit Iceland in the Summer of 2021 for 11 days. We rented a camper van and completed the drive around Iceland’s famed Ring Road. Based on our experience we have put together a suggested 11 day itinerary for those hoping to do the same!

Please note this is only a “suggested” itinerary which is intended to assist you in planning a trip that would work best for you and your traveling campaigns. Your travels may look different based on the needs of the members in your group, ever changing travel restrictions, and the weather. I also caution that any itinerary you make should allow for flexibility. We frequently deviated from our original plans due to high winds, heavy fog, required COVID testing, volcanic activity, and targeting campgrounds with the most amenities. If I had my way we would spend many more days in Iceland and cover every square inch. Below is what we were able to do with our time. Check out our very detailed blog A Return to Normal: Iceland by Camper Van for additional information. The days listed align with the days in the blog post.

Don’t forget to check out some last minute items we purchased from Amazon we found essential during our travels in Iceland: Quick dry camp towels were great for campground showers as well as shower totes. Sleep masks were a must for trying to sleep when it was light 24 hours a day. As well as a Multi Ports USB Car Charger to keep all our devises charged while in the camper van. We also love any opportunity we we have to bring along our favorite Rumpl blankets.
