A five-day Icelandic itinerary

If you are looking for adventure, then you may wish to consider motorhome hire. Combining the best parts of the home and a vehicle, you can enjoy something new and refreshing without ever feeling too homesick. Offering an easy means with which to book one of these fine vehicles, we are the company to call whenever a motorhome holiday is on the agenda.

Most of us only have a very limited amount of time for holidays, but if you have five days to spare, these Iceland locales are where you should spend them.

For day 1, travel to the Borgarfjörður region. This is where Europe’s most powerful hot spring, Deildartunguhver, is found, right near the town of Reykholt. Aside from visiting the town, you can take a few hikes and bask in the greatness of the Hraunfossar falls.

For day 2, visit the lovely old fishing village of Stykkishólmur. From here, you can take a short cruise around the Breiðafjördur Bay.

On day 3 why not drive down north to the Skagalfjörður? Close to the village of Hindisvik on the Vatnsnes peninsula, you might be lucky enough to come across some seal colonies.

Siglufjörôur and Hólar are ideal choices for day 4. The first was once a crucial herring-fishing area while the second was a Bishop’s residence, with the stone church being the oldest one in Iceland. It may also be worth it to visit the Glaumbær open air museum too.

On the fifth day your destination should be Akureyri, the centre of Iceland’s northern area. Finding something to spend your day on here won’t be difficult. The Jón Sveinsson museum, the botanical gardens and the ever lively town centre are all equally interesting in their own right, offering unique experiences for travellers.

At Motorhome Hire, using our website you can book your own vehicle with little to no hassle. All you need to do is choose your country, the pickup and drop off locations, and the preferred dates. It’s really that simple and we will show you all of the best deals too.
