You are welcome to suggest which way should we do the ring road. We were thinking of starting with golden circle and then moving to South of Iceland. All the good tips and ideas what to visit in Iceland are very welcome.

It all depends when you'll be here to be fair. If you're coming during winter months, I recommend planning more that 7 days, because the weather is really unpredictable from October to March(ish). If you're not planning on sleeping in, and plan on making many short stops or fewer long stops (fx. hiking, thermal pools etc.), I think you could pull it off if the weather behaves. Choice of vehicle also depends on the time of year. Camper vans could be tricky on snowy/icy roads, but bear in mind that after November 1st (or earlier if it snows), rental agencies should provide you a car with winter tires.
