Iceland 5-Day Tours & Itineraries

Explore 12 trips designed by local kimkim specialists to get ideas for your trip to Iceland.
5 Days in Iceland lets you explore the capital and 2 other nearby regions, such as the South Coast, Golden Circle, or Snaefellsnes Peninsula. It's not enough time to drive the full ring road, which requires a minimum of 7 days even on a fast-paced trip.

Most travelers focus on the South Coast and Holden Circle Highlights, and these areas can get quite busy especially in the southern months and accommodation can be difficult to find along the south coast. For travelers looking to mix highlands and less-crowded sights, a mixture of the Golden Circle and Snaefellsnes Peninsula is a great option with minimal driving.

If this isn't your first time in Iceland, consider driving north to explore the Arctic Coast and Lake Myvatn where you can explore some smaller fishing villages and experience the best whale watching and geothermal hotspots.
