I really want to visit Jökulsárlón lagoon and some of the main attractions on the way along the south coast (from Reykjavik).
My problem is that i can only spare 2 days for the south trip. I only have 5 days, 1 for the city, another for the Golden Circle and the 3rd for the Peninsula (also a long day).
I'm not camping and i checked 2 possibilities so far:
Spending the night in Vik:
If i sleep in Vik the 1st day will be easy but the 2nd will be too long, i still have to reach Jökulsárlón and then all the way back to Reykjavik
Spending the night in Hofn:
If i sleep here both days will have around the same length of travel/visit, however, to reach Hofn i have to drive around 70km more just to spend the night there and then back.
Is there some decent lodging closer to Jökulsárlón?
Is this plan too ambitious? But i think Jökulsárlón should be worth it.
