Westfjords, Iceland Road Trip with Sixt Iceland
If you’ve been following Tiny Iceland from the beginning you might have seen and/or read about my epic "Iceland Challenge 2013" and "Iceland Stopover 2014" trips. I was focusing on introducing Icelandair’s stopover program which is a great way for travelers flying a transatlantic flight that want to have the opportunity to visit Iceland with no extra fligt cost. This week, from June 20th-25th I'm doing a road trip around the Westfjords of Iceland with Sixt rent a car Iceland and joining me is my good friend Trish, from Los Angeles, California. In this post I'm sharing my Westfjords itinerary list. Cheers, Inga, founder of Tiny Iceland.
Road trip around Snæfellsnes Peninsula, West Iceland
[Guest Blog] What I’m about to describe should not be attempted ever again: The Snæfellsnes Peninsula in a day. It deserves a week at least, perhaps a year, probably a lifetime. To do it in a day is ridiculous but that’s all we allowed ourselves in our dash around Iceland. Karina and I woke in total darkness at 8am, carb-loaded at the breakfast buffet, and then put on our essential Icelandic winter-gear – our swimsuits – under multiple warmer layers. We imagined ourselves stopping at hot springs around the way but when we cross referenced our research with the local knowledge of our host, it seemed we were out of luck.

Iceland ideas via Pinterest
When traveling to a country for the first time I'm assuming people research and plan their trip ahead, at least I do. If you are a spontant traveler who doesn't like to plan then I think you might still like to read this post! Anyway, I usually search online when planning what places to see & do for each country I visit. So I must admit that Pinterest is a great tool to help with researching and planning. If you are not familiar with Pinterest then click here for information. I’ve gathered over 3K pins divided into 58 boards.
