    Hi Kiersten, I just want to know how much did the gas cost you for the whole trip?

      Hey Arun! I don’t quite remember the figures as I was splitting with my travel companions. HOWEVER, this itinerary lays out the approximate mileage per day –
      And when I went, fuel prices were around 200 ISK per liter which is about $7.50 per gallon (you’ll want to check if this has changed at all). I hope that helps! 🙂

    We are in our late sixties. Do many older couple camp in the van? I like the idea of not moving each day to another hotel. Too hard on us. Or would you recommend just side trips from the capital?
    We are not hikers but swimmers.

      Hi there! I’ve seen people from all walks of life camp in the vans — it’s really up to you and your comfort level though. I think you’ll get a lot more if you’re able to drive and camp around the island since some of the stretches are quite long, but if you’re unsure you could do side trips from the capital.
