I spent some beach reading time exploring Iceland guidebooks for a trip in the late summer or early fall. Circling the island quickly went out the window due to the amount of time in the car it would necessitate each day. Paring down the driving turned up the following sites:

Near Reykjavik:

Geysir, Gullfloss, and Þingvellir National Park

Western Iceland:

Snæfellsjökull National Park

Southern Iceland:

Vík, Þórsmörk, Fjallaback, Landmannalauger, and Skaftafell National Park

Further updates will appear in my Iceland Travel Guide.
