Iceland Itinerary Advice

Jump to last reply

I am just about to book flights to Reykjavik for our honeymoon in late June. We're going to spend 11 days in Iceland. I had initially planned out the following itinerary for 10 days, but the prices have dropped on flights if I extend by a day. Can you please review and let me know where you would add another night (in the same place, or a stop that I haven't included)?

Your input is greatly appreciated!

Day 1: arrive early morning, pick up rental car. . .spend day at Geysir, Gullfoss & Thingvellir. . .drive to Budir (Snaefellnes Peninsula) for one night

Day 2: spend morning around Snaefellnes Peninsula, ending up at Stykkisholmer for lunch. . .drive toward Sauderkroder, Tindastoll, Hofsos, and neighbouring fjords . .end up at Husavik for two nights

Day 3: Myvatn NP, Krafla, Bjarnaflag. . .maybe do the Lofthellir cave exploration tour?

Day 4: whale watching boat tour in morning, Jokulsargljufer NP in afternoon. . .drive to Seydisfjordur for one night

Day 5: kayaking from Seydisfjordur in morning. . .drive to Jokulsarlon Lagoon for afternoon. . .spend two nights in Skaftafell

Day 6: Ingolfshofdi bird tour, Skaftafell NP for rest of day

Day 7: ice walking on Svinafellsjokull. . .drive toward Vik for one night

Day 8: Dyrholaey and surroundings. . .Skogafoss. . .drive to Reykjavik for two nights

Day 9: Superjeep tour of Thorsmork or Landmannalaugur (any votes for which one we should do?)

Day 10: wander Reykjavik, visit Blue Lagoon and geothermal areas. . .late afternoon flight


So, that was the 10-day plan. . .where would you add another day?

Thanks again!
Stevie
