Iceland: Six Days/ Five Nights Itinerary with Photos

Updated: Apr 15, 2019

We had six days and five nights in Iceland in May 2018. Although we didn't have enough time to do the whole ring road, we drove the south side and it was fantastic! Every ten minutes on the road, the scenery would change, the next view more stunning than the last. From black sand deserts and beaches, to colossal glaciers, Iceland takes your breath away at every turn. And rainbows! So many rainbows!


The highlights for me were snowmobiling on the glacier with Arcanum Glacier Tours and visiting Jokursarlon. It was interesting going in the summer because the sun was still out at midnight. Be sure to pack eye masks! The positive of going at that time is that the roads are easier to drive and the weather is more predictable; the downside is that you don't get the Northern Lights.


I will warn you, the food in Iceland is not very good and costs a lot of money, but it is still worth it!
