5 Night Suggested Itinerary - South Iceland/Reykjavik

Jump to last reply

Hi - I would really appreciate any responses from my fellow travelers here. I am heading to Iceland for 5 nights the beginning of September. I arrive 9am at Keflavik Airport on Saturday and am renting a car for the week from the airport. I am planning on doing the Blue Lagoon right away since it is so close.

After that, the plan was to drive to Vik, where I will be staying two nights (Saturday and Sunday nights). What should I stop and see along the way from the Blue Lagoon? And what is a good day trip from Vik for the next day?

On Monday, I have the day to explore west of Vik, and plan on staying the night at Hotel Ranga (near Hella). Would it be possible to do the Golden Circle on this day before heading to the hotel?

Tuesday and Wednesday nights will be spent in Reykjavik. So I have Tuesday to also do the Golden Circle if the day before it is not possible, but I would like to explore in and around Reykjavik these last two days if I can.

Thursday is an early 10am flight from Keflavik Airport.

Any responses are appreciated. I am so looking forward to this trip!
