Iceland Trip May 2015...Information Please.

My friend and I are about to begin planning a trip to Iceland in May 2015. (Precise dates not set as yet, but because of other commitments it does have to be May). Probably staying 7-10 days Whilst the main focus of the trip is to be birds we are both keen photographers and general naturalists and want to see as much of the landscape/wildlife as possible which would give good photographic opportunities and also take part in at least one whale watching trip.

As neither of us drive we are hoping to arrange a driver/guide and would welcome any suggestions as how best to approach this. I have found a website which lists available guides, but any extra information would be useful. Also welcome would be advice as to best base/s for accommodation (we aren’t looking for luxury just somewhere comfortable or even a bit uncomfortable if giving good access to wildlife and landscape) giving access to the best sites/areas.

Use the talents you possess - for the woods would be a very silent place if no birds sang except for the best.”-- Henry Van Dyke
