|This was a hugely fun but at times exhausting trip! If we had it to do over again, we would break the long
second day into two days. The red-eye flight also made the first day really tough, so we might limit the first
day to just the Blue Lagoon then do the Golden Circle as a separate day. That would bring the total road
trip days to ten. An optional rest day somewhere in the middle would also be ideal (perhaps in Seydisfjordur).
As for the hiking part of our trip, we loved every minute of it. Sometimes the sleeping can be a challenge
in the huts, but if you love to hike, then it's really nice having one full day at each hiking destination with no
transport involved. That lets you really get out and explore the trails. For those who don't need quite so much
time, it would certainly be possible to see a lot with just one overnight each in Thorsmork and Landmannalaugar.
