Complete the ring road of Iceland by heading to the capital, Reykjavik. Those who would like to experience some hidden gems, we recommend a relaxing drive via Hvalfjörður fjord. There you will find Glymur, a tall beautiful waterfall but the hike to the top requires sturdy shoes, moderate fitness level, and favourable weather. It is indeed worth the hike if you are looking for spending some quality time in nature. Other sights include Bjartisandur, a charming farm where you can dine on local fresh food and even join a farm tour with the owners. Hvalfjörður is a scenic drive where the locals from Reykjavik enjoy going for picnics and hikes.
If time allows you could even venture out on a road trip to the volcanic peninsula of Reykjanes where you can take a dip into the Blue Lagoon (not included) and explore Seltún hot spring area and enjoy the rocky cliffs along the edge of Reykjanes before dropping off the rental car in the afternoon or evening.
Spend the night in Reykjavik.
