This plan consists of boilerplate pages that are assembled in an order that approximates requests made. It is not personalized. We specifically requested a minimum of waterfalls and got a plan with many.
Although this may be a good starting point, folks who use this service should be aware that considerable fine tuning of the document will be needed to make it truly personalized.

This was the best purchase I could have made for our trip to Iceland. This plan had some great suggestions for things to do and see that are not as "touristy" but also hit all the must-see places, but it also provided a ton of flexibility when our plans needed to change due to notorious Iceland winter weather. I cannot recommend this highly enough. I particularly loved the photos and detailed explanation of each place that was recommended and why.

Overall very pleased with this service. Saved me hours researching and planning route and accommodation. At one particular cabin, host was so friendly and helpful suggesting a couple of extra attractions which we found very useful. Did not visit all the places mentioned as we felt we would not appreciate 1-2 sights in the winter. Keeping these attractions on back burner for when we revisit in Spring/summer another time.

The discount code towards hotel and car hire is a bonus and contributed towards reducing the cost for this plan.

We decided to use When In Iceland to help plan our road trip as there was certain ‘definites’ we wanted to see but thought it best to get some inside help to make the routes work
And they did.... they were always available to go through any changes or offer any advice - and saved us so much time and headaches by planning our route
Highly recommend and would certainly use again - thank you all so much - I love Iceland

I've previously written a glowing review of the "Personalized Road Trip Plan" that I purchased from When In Iceland. I wrote it 3 days into our 12-day visit. I am happy to report, that for the duration of our trip, the product we purchased from When In Iceland was invaluable! We circumnavigated the Island in 10 days of driving (1600+ miles; or 2600+ km). The recommendations from When In Iceland NEVER, and I mean NEVER, let us down. We asked for some roads less traveled, and those destinations were some of our favorite adventures. When In Iceland even gave me links to Google Map routes for each day, and links to recommended hotels/guesthouses. Also, we had links to some of the activities (like snorkeling and kayaking) that were excellent, and they came with a small discount. All told, I think the discounts we got by using links from When In Iceland covered the cost of the Road Trip Plan.

In summary, we found the Icelandic people to be as endearing as their land, and When In Iceland delivered their service to us in true Icelandic fashion!

I don’t think I can overstate how helpful the road trip plan has been! We are on day 3 of our road trip and the information provided by When In Iceland has been absolutely spot on.

We did a lot of preplanning for this trip - not our usual way, because I wasn’t confident we could figure it all out while on the road. I’m convinced we made a good call there. With all of our accommodations precooked, we travel with confidence, and we don’t have to spend any time online or on the phone trying to book rooms.

Also, the personalized PDF of our itinerary has been accurate and very applicable. For our 10-day road trip it was 72 pages!!

There is so much to do here in Iceland, it’s nice to know we have a local’s perspective on what places and activities are those “must see or do” things.

Lastly, I’ll say that Heida (sorry, I don’t know how to make the little line through the D!) was very responsive to my emails as we were fleshing out the plan. This service was an excellent choice for us!

First, Iceland is big! We were overwhelmed with the number of activities to do in Iceland and wanted to get far from the crowds in the Golden Circle (but also get a chance to see the sites). My husband and I traveled with our adult children who are avid hikers and climbers, so we knew this needed to be an adventure trip. Heida at When In Iceland helped sort this out for us based on our interests and for a nominal fee. This is a family run business and they predominantly work by email. Heida was very responsive and detail-oriented.

We sought out the Westfjords as our destination after we landed in Keflavik, and our road map guided us to some very special spots within a short drive. Heida sent us maps, specific touring times and background on each destination. She had us stop at Glanni Falls and Paradise Hollow - and then onto a small, lesser known hot spring before we landed in Patreksfjord. The road trip gave us specific time between each stop and was as accurate as Google Maps. We spent three days touring the westfjords - hiking Latrabjarg Cliffs, the Red Sand beach (not to be missed), the Dynjandi waterfall, and more hot springs!

Our tour took us on another long-ish journey to the Snaefellsnes Peninsula - where we took in the magnificent lava fields, mountains, waterfalls and Djupalonsandur beach - not to be missed.

Our last day took us through the standard Iceland fare - Geysir, Gullfoss and Thingvellir. Beware - lots of people!

When In Iceland can come up with lists of restaurants and hotels, (and can make reservations) and have connections to Troll tours, who safely and knowledgeably guided us on a glacier hike and ice climb, as well as a Snorkel tour at Silfra through the tectonic plates - very cool, but be prepared for long waits in dry suits!

My only critique of the service is that it included "too much" for our brief stay and driving in the Westfjords is pretty challenging. So, be realistic when you get the map and prioritize what you want to do. Heida was more than happy to answer questions and redo the road map (which you can download on your phone) when we made changes. Also, check the time of year you are going. We made it to the Bird Cliffs (where Puffins nest, but leave in mid-August!) and were a little too early for the Northern Lights.

We cannot wait to return to see more of this magnificent country and would certainly work with When In Iceland again.

Anna at When In Iceland is so incredibly helpful. Not only was our personalized road trip amazing and helpful and time-saving, but she answered a lot of other questions for me as well. She also suggested Lotus Rental car and we were very happy with them. This services was well worth it and I would suggest it to anyone who is new to visiting Iceland. Anna relieved a lot of anxiety about the unknown on this trip. Thank you Anna!

When in Iceland did a great job planning our week long trip. We gave them the cities we wanted to see with a side note that we wanted to avoid large crowds. They did a fantastic job with maps, highlighting things to see along the route and even set up a Glacier Hike for us that we loved. We were able to find cheaper hotel/car rental than what they suggested but everyone else was great.
