Here is a 4 night 5 day Itinerary for you. Well, we technically made it 3 nights and 5 days and just didn’t sleep a day :)
Rented a car from one of the many options near the airport. When we arrived the airport is swarming with different shuttles taking you to your car rental location, be sure and give your location a call and they will shuttle you to your rental area. Tip: be sure and get a all wheel drive or four wheel drive. This so important especially in the winter in Iceland. When you hit your first Iceland winter storm, you will be thanking us!
(Note and warning: we hit the craziest winter storm of our lives! Both J and I grew up in Michigan so used to crazy storms. But between 50 mlp hour winds, snow, sleet, complete darkness and a complete white out… oh and in mountains we’ve never been in! It was the craziest drive our life but made it to VIK but this did take from our time and had to reschedule some things!)
First up was Diamond Beach which was a perfect name for this Ice beach!
Ice cave Tour through Arctic Adventures: Our tour guide was the coolest & the time spent sliding and hiking around the caves is a once in a life time experience! More info HERE
Drove back to VIK and had dinner & drinks at Smiðjan Brugghús & stayed HERE< Very nice clean and fun location!
The next morning our goal was to hit everything we missed from the storm!
Black Beach <- click for more info Please follow the signs and watch out for sneaker waves! We aren't kidding - they're sneaky and deadly.
CD Plane Wreck <- click for more info. Very poplar so plan lots of time if you want that one of a kind picture.
Blue Lagoon <- click for more info . This place is just incredible and so fun! We saw another family while we were here with young kids so you can bring the family. We enjoyed the facemasks and a walk up bar! Super fun way to end the trip :)
