Doing our own tours

Hi there

Going to Reykjavik for a weekend in October, we'll do a Northern Lights tour but with other tours it could get very expensive, plus we'd prefer time on our own.

Is it easy enough to do tours like Golden Circle on your own with a hire car? Also is it worth hiring for just one day to do a tour from the city, or better to pick up a car at the airport e.g. How easy is it to park in the city?

Top tips appreciated

Thanks

Liz

Yes doing the Golden Circle on your own in hire car is easy and a popular choice. Parking in Reykjavik is very easy.

Brilliant, thank you.

One more question, will a basic car be OK for the Golden Circle or will we need a 4x4?

Thanks

A 2wd car will be all you need.
