3 Days in Iceland - What to do?

Jump to last reply

We are arriving in Reykjavik on a Saturday morning and staying at a Room with a View. We depart Tuesday around 4:00 in the afternoon.

It just seems overwhelming with so much to see in so little time.

Saturday we figured we'd spend exploring the city.

Monday we figured we'd do the Golden Circle.

That leaves Sunday and Tuesday morning open.

We want to do the Blue Lagoon and would also really like to do some type of boat trip to see birds and/or whales.

After reading other reviews on here, I'd really like to take a drive along southern coast to Skaftafell.

How much can we realistically squeeze in without wearing ourselves out? Would it be possible to do blue lagoon and a boat trip in the morning on Tuesday before getting to the airport or is that best scheduled on Sunday? Is driving to Skaftafell so far that we won't have much time to enjoy it in a day if we did that on Sunday instead?

I don't mind renting a car and doing a bit of driving myself. I'd much prefer that than organized tours where possible.

The way I'm looking at this, its a trip to get our feet wet to go back again later, so don't want to overdo it, but at the same time, we still want to enjoy what we can.

Thanks
