Spent 6 nights here in a King Studio. Great quiet location and plenty of storage for the cold weather clothes. Room was quite cozy and had all of the appropriate amenities. The location was just fabulous! We did not rent a car and walked almost...More
Our two-night stay at Canopy was all-round great. We had never stayed at this new-concept Hilton brand before. We weren't sure what to expect when we arrived, with the cool-and-groovy reception desks with bar areas around it, and vinyl albums to choose from to play...More

It all depends on which adventures are on your agenda (I do see yours laid out here) and how much time you have see them, as well as if you prefer the freedom of having your own pace and car. Let me say that winter weather can be tricky with very high winds and sleet and snow coming straight at you.
So here's the scoop: If you are an experienced Winter driver and you like to travel at your own pace, all of the locations you mentioned are pretty easily accessible by roads and a rental car. If you prefer the safety of travelling in a group, there are tours that can take you to all of the places you mentioned, also. If you have some item that particularly interests you, say for example you studied geology and you are really into volcanoes, you may also want to go on your own so you aren't controlled by the tour itself. Most of the tours are big bus ones that pull up, give you 20 minutes to see the sight and move on. That would be REALLY frustrating for that geology major, having to load back onto the bus with filled with foreigners and move on to the next tourist stand... so take that into consideration, too!
Good luck and enjoy Iceland! It's one of the few remaining natural outposts on earth where it can be just you all alone with the power and beauty of nature -- It's amazing and awesome, so be sure you take enough time to bask in the wonder of it all!
