I tagged Budget Friendly. Please not that I recommend the Hot Dog here but not really anything else. ;) The Hot Dog is fare priced but I find everything else quite expensive, compared to what you get.

Beautiful Waterfall next to road 939. I recommend you to drive up to the waterfall and then back to road nr 1. The road 939 is a mountain road and can be slow and tuff to drive that I don't recommend.

Beautiful glacier, Hoffellsjökull. I would recommend 4x4 cars, it is not always possible to drive there on smaller non 4x4 cars. Short hikes / long hikes, for free. Nice to end the hike by going to the geothermal hot tubs in Hoffell (fee).

I went on a kayak tour with this company and oh my lord! I did it two years ago but in my memory, it is still so fresh experience. I highly, highly recommend their kayak tour on Heinabergslón. Fantastic tour. I know they also to IceCave tours, I haven't been on their tour myself but I were planning to I would book with them or with GlacierTrips.

Outdoor Geothermal Hot Tubs. They charge fee. I really recommend these hot tubs, always except in summer, then they are very very crowded! In winter, remember to check the temerature of the hot tubs before you get undressed - some of them are warmer than the others. Good to have a warm cap in the winter so you wont get cold.

Shopping
Here you can find beautiful local handcraft. Not budget friendly but these items are real memory to bring back home. Wool sweaters, wool gloves. Souvenirs made from lava, stones, wood. Just name it. Must stop!
