Ultimate Iceland Itineraries: 5, 7, 10 & 14 Days

When it comes to planning the perfect Iceland itinerary, we have you covered. Our researchers scouted the island, our Iceland experts chipped in, and then we asked travelers themselves what cool sights and chill activities most thrill them. Then we assessed how much time most travelers are likely to have. We put all these ingredients together to come up with a satisfying hlaðborð (smorgasbord) of itineraries. Read on for our top recommendations for itineraries of 5, 7, 10, and 14 days.

Hraunfossar in the wintertime
Iceland: Winter Waterfalls & Glacier Tours - 7 Days

Enjoy the snowier side of Iceland on this seven-day winter adventure. On arrival, head "Into the Glacier" at Langjökull, on the way to discover the Snaefellsnes Peninsula, filled with basalt columns, black-sand beaches, and beautiful cliffs. Then, go on a snowmobiling excursion out of the Golden Circle, and wind down with a warm lagoon soak. Next, visit the spectacular frozen falls along the South Coast, including Seljalandsfoss and Skogafoss, and go on glacier walks at Skaftafell and Jökulsárlón. Wind down with some exploration of snow-topped Reykjavik before heading home.

Next, you’ll head west on the famous Flåm Railway to explore Balestrand and its majestic mountains. From here, take advantage of the warmer weather with a kayaking tour of dramatic fjords. Finish the adventure in Bergen, with a wander around its colorful wooden houses and a trip up Fløyen Mountain for panoramic views of the city.

Great Experience for Personalized Icelandic Vacation · Iceland - Mar 8 - Mar 13, 2020

Anuj was a great resource in helping to customize our Iceland vacation to match our expectations throughout the planning process. After our trip began, having Anuj supporting our trip was invaluable.

Wonderful · Norway - Sep 21 - Sep 26, 2019

Traveler: Eddie Y. - Local specialist: Anuj Mahat

Balestrand was wonderful, probably the highlight of our trip, especially the Fjord boat trip there and from. The hotel was also quite special

Flam was also wonderful as well, as was the train ride.

Given the objectives (truly scenic, awe-inspiring nature), I felt like we could have been guided differently.

The others were fine and reasonable for the price paid, but I have some feedback for the rest of the trip

Given the objectives (truly scenic, awe-inspiring nature), I felt like we could have been guided differently.

The others were fine and reasonable for the price paid, but I have some feedback for the rest of the trip

1. Initially we had a day in Bergen set aside, which I changed and I was glad we did because Bergen while more enjoyable than your typical European city wasn't why we were in Norway

2. Tromso we knew was a risk given the low probability of seeing the Northern Lights, but I wish we had given a more thorough pros/cons discussion of going. We didn't see the lights, it was raining (none of which can be predicted), but I feel like we wasted a day a few thousand dollars on that decision. I would have rather spent another day in a city like Balestrand or Flam

Besides that, the packing guidance was less helpful as we were told to pack thermal underwear, jackets and clothing that took up a lot of room in the suitcase, and we ended up not needing because the Tromso bus was warm (where you spend the majority of the time on the tour) and they have thermal jackets, so I wish we were guided to pack differently.

The water bottle was unnecessary as well, more of a nice to have.

3. I wish there was more detail about the transportation (e.g., length of trip, where to sit on the train, boat, etc)

4. I wish we had more choices about the hotels. Balestrand and Flam hotels were very nice, but the Bergen hotel was not great and the Tromso hotel was terrible and dirty

5. I wish I had more flexibility to change the room bookings. I ended up needing an extra room, and it proved impossible to do through KimKim

Hi Eddie,
Thank you very much for your review. We appreciate the time you took to help us improve our service constantly.
We take your comment for hotel/ flexibility and roadbook into account and will review our partners and recommendation. We are very sorry for the inconvenience you had to face during your trip and the extra time you had to invest.
Regarding your stay in Tromso and the Northern Light excursion and after rereading your chat with the agent, it appears that the local expert indicated several times the unpredictable chances of seeing the Northern Lights and the recommendation of either skipping Tromso or staying at least 2 nights to have a bigger time window. We regret that the weather was not on your side that day.
Nevertheless, we are very happy you enjoyed the other parts of the trip and wish to welcome you soon again on one of our trips.
Best regards,
The Altai Norway Team
