Going North

At last - our summer holiday has actually been booked. Immediately on receiving the thumbs-up from Miss C re destination and dates, I booked return flights to Iceland. When we get there, we'll have just over a week to look around. She doesn't know it yet, but we'll also have a Suzuki Jimny (4WD, small, looks fun) for the duration.

The current plan (which she doesn't know about yet) is that we'll spend a day in and around the capital seeing the usual sights, possibly on a standard tourist bus, then take off into the interior of the island, leaving such frivolities as tarmaced roads far, far behind. We'll be looking for glaciers, volcanoes and the like. Any suggestions about equipment for off-roading, hiking in a sub-arctic desert, surviving volcanoes and so on, will be gratefully received.
