(4 customer reviews)


Ready to have a stress free Iceland trip but confused about how much to fit in one day?

Sick and tired of researching how much time to plan for each stop or how long it takes to get from place to place?

Want an itinerary you’re excited about…but are overwhelmed by how to put it all together?

Hi 🙋🏼‍♀️ I created this itinerary just for you!

Forget about wondering where you should stay each night or how long to plan for the stop at that waterfall.

This itinerary has been crafted to solve your biggest question: how much can be done in one day.

Save yourself hours of research and worrying if you’re over-packing your days or driving past a hidden gem – I’ve already done that work for you!

I’ve planned enough custom itineraries for my clients to know how to perfectly time each day. BUT my custom planning service is consistently booked out and available via waiting list only. So if you need an itinerary NOW, this is your answer!

    I discovered your YouTube channel when I began planning our trip over two years ago to RV the Ring Road. I watched many of those which were sooo helpful! I discovered your website, guides and then your itineraries and bought the Ring Road guide and 10 day itinerary. What a game changer; it was beyond helpful knowing how much you could fit into a day and how much time it took to get from one place to another! I was able to figure out when to book certain tours so we could book early and not get closed out of something we really wanted to do. All the details and the map were so helpful! I printed it out and had it in a binder with certain things highlighted and all of my own notes written down. Each night we would go over the next day’s plans. It was the Bible of the trip and my husband would ask what does Jeanne say — as far as parking, tips, etc. It was the most EPIC of trips and this itinerary aided in that! We were so grateful that our dream finally became a reality (we were originally supposed to go in July of 2020)!

    Our family of five, including three teenage boys, have Iceland with a View Ring Road Itinerary to thank for an incredible, trip of a lifetime 11 day visit to Iceland. Things that were most useful were the Google map, Jeannie’s gems, time estimates, ratings, information about crowds, and the ability to easily adjust and accommodate our interests with additional stops or detours. Our family loved the hiking options but also balancing those with soaks in the geothermal baths. One of the things we appreciated about the itinerary was the variety of sights suggested or included. My family was familiar with Icelandic history and the Icelandic Sagas as well has the natural beauty and volcanic history and activity. We found the itinerary allowed for us to explore these interests as we traveled around the island. As the trip planner, I had spent many hours pinning and making notes of sights to see, but Jeannie’s itinerary saved me so much more time in collating these highpoints, pacing our trip and finding overnight accommodations . Thank you for an incredible trip! We loved every minute of it!
