Iceland in 5 Days: Choose Your Own Adventure

    I call this final day as a ‘choose your own adventure’ day because you have a few options of what to do on your last day.

    You’re likely driving back to Reykjavik on this last day and while we chose to actually spend more time in Reykjavik, you could easily choose to do Blue Lagoon if you didn’t do it on your way in or head that way anyway (even if you’ve already done Blue Lagoon) and check out Reykjanes Peninsula. It’s right near the airport too so you can spend your day out there and get hotel accommodations near the airport if you aren’t flying out until the next morning (like we were).

    I’ve been dreaming of going to Iceland for years, and now I want to go even more. It sounds like it was a great trip, thanks for sharing these tips !

  • Raquel says:

    Thank you for your post! I am traveling to Iceland in February for 6 days and I believe most of your itinerary is compatible with my winter drip and duration. I was wondering if I could get any advice on a possible modification. After traveling the Golden Circle from Reykavik, do you suggest staying at another town more south instead of circling back to Reykavik? I also plan on visiting southern Iceland next.

    • Julie says:

      Hmm, not that I can recall, honestly. I didn’t even look into that; we just went back to Reykjavik :)

  • Nicole says:

    Hi! Your itinerary sounds amazing! Could you please tell me who your guide was and any contact information you may have?

    • Julie says:

      Hi Nicole, we didn’t have a guide – I planned this trip myself! Or are you talking about another post where I mentioned a guide for one of the excursions?

  • Karen says:

    Could you tell me what time of year your went to Iceland please?
    I value your blog greatly.

    • Julie says:

      We went end of May/early June.
