Iceland Itinerary Tips

Best Visiting Times

This itinerary is tailored more for the summer months in Iceland between late May and early September (Memorial Day – Labor Day), though you can see most, if not all, of these attractions year-round. We took this trip over Labor Day weekend – leaving Tuesday night and returning Monday night.

Make Reservations Ahead of Time

For anything that requires a reservation in this itinerary, we recommend doing so as soon as possible. During peak seasons, bookings fill up quickly, so be sure to plan ahead! We provide reservation instructions as needed throughout the course of this itinerary to make things easy.

Start Your Days Early

To get the most out of your trip, wake up early and use every moment of daylight as possible to explore this beautiful country. We also recommend visiting the most popular attractions first thing in the morning, or later in the evening, when there are less tourists around. Our hour-by-hour itinerary has been put together to make sure that you are finished hiking with plenty of time before the sun goes down.

Packing for Iceland

Make sure to pack warm, waterproof clothes! It’s cold and it rains – a lot. A full packing list can be found at the following link.
