Kirkjubaejarklaustur to Hofn

We are planning our itinerary (2 adults, 2 kids) for a week So.Iceland in July. We will cover Reykjavik, Golden Circle, Vik living in each of the places for 1 or 2 nights. We also plan to spend a night in Kirkjubaejarklaustur in Skaftafell region. Should we drive all the way to Hofn after that? Os there something in the Hofn area that is unmissable? We would ideally just like to live in a farmstay and enjoy the Icelandic countryside..

Kirkjubæjarklaustur is only 70 Km. east of Vik, so why stay there ? Are you on foot ?

Stay near Skaftafell, there are nice guesthouses and hotels there, like one of my favorite: http://www.sveit.is/FarmDetails.aspx?No=600 Or even nearer to Skaftafell: Hotel Skaftafell. with the beautiful glacier view.

There is much to do between that area and Hofn, and the highlights are Skaftafell park and the glaciers and glacier lagoon. And Hofn is a really nice fishing town, with beautiful views and a interesting bird sanctuary.
