Because you have plenty of time to take in the sights, it is easy to exchange any excursions if the weather is a bit disappointing when they are scheduled.  In winter, this tour focuses mostly on the area not too far away from the capital, so you do not have to drive great distances.  The journey begins with a stay in the south west, where you visit the main attractions of Iceland such as, Geysir, Gullfoss and Þingvellir National Park, and the south coast.   Then you drive to the west, where the province of Borgarfjörður and the Snæfellsnes peninsula are explored.  There is also plenty of time to explore the Reykjanes Peninsula and the capital of Reykjavík.

ITINERARY

DAY 1
Day 1: KEFLAVÍK–SELFOSS
After you arrive at Keflavík airport, you will pick up your rental car. Then you drive to Reykjavík, where you can do some shopping, if you like. Next, continue on to your hotel in Selfoss.
DAY 2
Day 2: ÞINGVELLIR-GULLFOSS-GEYSIR
Today, you will start by driving to Þingvellir National Park, where the ancient outdoor parliament was founded in 930. This area is also very interesting from a geological point of view, since it’s situated on top of the mid-Atlantic ridge where two of earth’s tectonic plates slowly drift apart.  Because of this, you can hike down into a fissure (named Almannagjá) created between the two plates. After exploring this magnificent spot, you drive to Laugarvatn and then the tour continues on to the Geysir hot spring area with its famous spouting Strokkur and a great number of bubbling, steaming, boiling springs.  After this, you will visit one of the most beautiful, and certainly the most famous waterfall in Iceland, Gullfoss.  From Gullfoss, continue via the charming gorge of Brúarhlöð to Flúðir.  Next you can visit the lovely church at Skálholt, and then drive back to your accommodation.
DAY 3
Day 3: SELJALANDSFOSS-SKÓGAR-DYRHÓLAEY-VÍK
Today you follow the south coast towards the east, and you make your first stop at Seljalandsfoss, a lovely waterfall which is very special: You can walk behind it – if you don’t mind getting wet! Next, you should visit Skógar folk museum, a fantastic exhibit of old artifacts and other handicraft.  In the same hamlet, you also visit Skógafoss, a beautiful 60m high waterfall! Next you can perhaps drive to the glacier tongue Sólheimajökull to get an up close view of this unique site.  Another possibility is a drive up to Dyrhólaey cliff to see the puffins (not after mid-August). The road is steep and winding but the view is worth it. There are puffins everywhere up until the middle of August and, if the weather is nice, there is a lovely view of Mýrdalsjökull glacier. After a look at the village of Vík, you drive back to you hotel.
DAY 4
Day 4: REYKJANES-KRÍSUVÍK-BLUE LAGOON-BORGARNES
Today you might like to make an excursion to the Reykjanes peninsula, starting with a visit to the boiling mud puddles of Krísuvík.  After that you visit the fishing village of Grindavík, with its interesting museum about fisheries.  The highlight of this trip would be a visit to the famous Blue Lagoon, a lake filled with natural warm water, rich in minerals of all sorts.  A bath here, surrounded by the lava fields, is a very original experience.  After this you could drive to the edge of the peninsula where you can see the "Bridge between continents", a symbolic bridge marking the area where the European and the American earth crust plates meet.  Finally you drive to Borgarfjörður County where you stay overnight for the next 2 nights..
DAY 5
Day 5: SNÆFELLSNES-STYKKISHOLMUR-BORGARNES
This day is dedicated entirely to the Snæfellsnes peninsula. First, the trip goes west along the south shore of the peninsula until you arrive at Arnarstapi bird cliffs. A walk here is strongly recommended, because of the lovely basalt formations, as well as the numerous nesting birds, such as kittiwakes and arctic terns. At the tip of the peninsula, there are many picturesque places to stop, such as Þúfubjarg bird cliff (this involves a short walk away from the main road) and Djúpalónssandur beach where a rocky path brings you down to an impressive black beach. On a clear day, you might get a nice view of Snæfellsjökull glacier, an old volcano surrounded by lava fields. Afterwards, you drive along the north side of the peninsula through various fishing villages, such as Ólafsvík, Grundarfjörður and Stykkishólmur. In Stykkishólmur, it is possible to take an optional boat trip on Breiðafjörður Fjord, enjoying the rich bird-life, lovely basalt formations, and scallops that are caught fresh during the trip.  At the end of the day, dive back to your house near Borgarnes.
DAY 6
Day 6: HÚSAFELL-HRAUNFOSSAR-REYKHOLT-DEILDARTUNGUHVER-REYKJAVÍK
oday, you will travel to the summer resort of Húsafell, where you can visit a lovely swimming pool. Your next goal is Hraunfossar waterfalls, a series of small waterfalls that tumble straight out of the lava- a strange and magnificent sight! From there, you drive to Reykholt village, where the 13th century historian Snorri Sturluson lived. It’s still possible to see his miniature private swimming pool in this small village and, if you’re interested in history, a visit to the Snorri Museum is indicated.  Next you visit Iceland’s largest hot spring, Deildartunguhver, which provides people as far as 60 km away with hot water to heat their houses. Then, you drive around the scenic Hvalfjörður fjord to Reykjavík where you can explore the capital city. End the day with a night out and enjoy a meal in one of the many fine dining establishments to be found.  You will stay overnight in Reykjavík. 
DAY 7

In the city, you can walk down the old town street full of boutiques and restaurants or visit one of the many galleries and museums.  Don’t forget to visit Hallgrímskirkja Church and Perlan, where a revolving restaurant sits on top of the city’s hot water tanks offering a fantastic view over the city. There are also two shopping malls, a botanical garden in a lovely park, a small zoo (with mostly domestic animals), wonderful outdoor, year-round swimming pools, a world class spa, bowling alleys, fitness centers, and many other things to do. It is also possible to book a whale-watching tour out of Reykjavík or even go fishing.  If you come between October 9th and December 8th, you can see Yoko Ono’s “Peace Tower”, a tower of light on the island of Viðey just off the shore of Reykjavík.
