DAY 1
Day 1: KEFLAVÍK–BLUE LAGOON-REYKJAVÍK
After you arrive at Keflavík airport, you will pick up your rental car. If you arrive during the day, you can visit the famous Blue Lagoon, filled with natural, mineral-rich hot water. After a refreshing swim surrounded by the lunar landscape of lava fields and a geothermal plant, you drive to Reykjavík, where you will stay overnight.  If your flight arrives late in the evening you will drive straight to your accommodation, but they you will visit the Blue Lagoon on your last day instead.
DAY 2
Day 2: REYKJAVÍK-SOUTH SHORE-VÍK-KIRKJUBÆJARKLAUSTUR
Today, you start off on your drive along the south coast towards the east, through the villages of Hveragerði, Selfoss, Hella and Hvolsvöllur.  You make a stop at Seljalandsfoss, a lovely waterfall which is very special: You can walk behind it – if you don’t mind getting wet! Next, you should visit Skógar folk museum, a fantastic exhibit of old artifacts and other handicraft.  In the same hamlet, you also visit Skógafoss, a beautiful 60 m high waterfall! Next you can perhaps drive to the glacier tongue Sólheimajökull to get an up close view of this unique site.  Another possibility is a drive up to Dyrhólaey cliff to see the puffins. The road is steep and winding but the view is worth it. There are puffins everywhere from mid May up until the middle of August and, if the weather is nice, there is a lovely view of Mýrdalsjökull glacier. After a look at the village of Vík, you drive continue over Mýrdalssandur sand plains to your accommodation in the neighborhood of Kirkjubæjarklaustur.  
DAY 3
Day 3: SKAFTAFELL & GLACIER LAGOON
Today, you have a whole day to explore Skaftafell national park.  You can take a 1½ hour hike up to Svartifoss waterfall, surrounded by incredible basalt columns or walk in the direction of the glacier tongue Skaftafellsjökull.  You can choose to drive to the glacier tongue Svínafellsjökull if you want an up close view of this unique site. There are also quite many other great hiking trails to be found in Skaftafell.   Also, you continue a bit further east to visit the magnificent glacier lagoon Jökulsárlón  where large icebergs float in the water. It's possible to make an optional boat-trip (by amphibian boat or by zodiac, whichever you prefer) on the lagoon (30-45 minutes) which brings you closer to the glacier itself and provides great opportunities to take spectacular pictures of the icebergs.  After this you return to your hotel in Kirkjubæjarklaustur, or you might even have a hotel a bit further west, in Vík or Skógar.
DAY 4
Day 4: SOUTH COAST-GULLFOSS-GEYSIR-ÞINGVELLIR-BORGARNES
Today, as you drive back along the south coast to the west, it’s possible to visit some of the spots you did not have enough time to see on your way east.  But the most important thing today is to visit 3 of Iceland’s famous highlights. The first is visit Gullfoss, one of the most beautiful waterfalls in Iceland and certainly the most famous.   Next you visit the Geysir area, where the famous spring Strokkur ejects its water columns high into the air every 5 minutes or so. There are many other bubbling and boiling hot springs, as well as, an interesting exhibit and a restaurant. Then you drive to Þingvellir National Park, where the ancient parliament was founded in 930. This area is also very interesting from a geological point of view, since it’s situated on top of the mid-Atlantic ridge where two of earth’s tectonic plates slowly drift apart. Because of this, you can hike down into a fissure (named Almannagjá) located between the two plates.  Finally, you drive along Hvalfjörður fjord to the Borgarnes area, where you stay for the next 2 nights.
DAY 5
Day 5: SNÆFELLSNES-STYKKISHOLMUR-BORGARNES
This day is dedicated entirely to the Snæfellsnes peninsula. First, the trip goes west along the south shore of the peninsula until you arrive at Arnarstapi bird cliffs. A walk here is strongly recommended, because of the lovely basalt formations, as well as the numerous nesting birds, such as kittiwakes and arctic terns. At the tip of the peninsula, there are many picturesque places to stop, such as Þúfubjarg bird cliff (this involves a short walk away from the main road) and Djúpalónssandur beach where a rocky path brings you down to an impressive black beach. On a clear day, you might get a nice view of Snæfellsjökull glacier, an old volcano surrounded by lava fields. Afterwards, you drive along the north side of the peninsula through various fishing villages, such as Ólafsvík, Grundarfjörður and Stykkishólmur. In Stykkishólmur, it is possible to take an optional boat trip on Breiðafjörður Fjord, enjoying the rich bird-life, lovely basalt formations, and scallops that are caught fresh during the trip.  At the end of the day, dive back to your hotel near Borgarnes.
DAY 6
Day 6: HÚSAFELL-HRAUNFOSSAR-REYKHOLT-DEILDARTUNGUHVER
Today, you drive through the province of Borgarfjörður, where you can visit some amazing sights! First, make a stop at the summer resort of Húsafell, where you can have a swim in a lovely, geothermal heated swimming pool. Next, visit the fantastic and mysterious waterfalls Hraunfossar where a whole row of small waterfalls tumble out of the lava, into a passing river.  Then you should take some time to explore the village Reykholt, where you can see the 13th century "hot pot" built by historian Snorri Sturluson. Finally, visit Deildartunguhver which is Iceland’s largest hot spring, producing 180 l of near boiling water per minute.  Next, you continue to Reykjavík where you will spend the next two nights.
DAY 7
Day 7: REYKJANES & REYKJAVÍK
Today, you can make an excursion to Reykjanes. It starts with a visit to the boiling mud pools of Krísuvík. Then, visit the fishing village Grindavík where you can stop at a quaint fishing museum. The highlight of this day is a visit to the famous Blue Lagoon, a lake filled with natural, mineral-rich hot water. Enjoy a refreshing swim surrounded by the lunar landscape of lava fields and even a massage floating in the geothermal waters. After you are nice and relaxed, continue your drive to the tip of the peninsula, where you can look out over the ocean.  A little further, you can visit the "bridge between the continents”, a symbolic bridge that indicates where about the European and American tectonic plates come together. From there you drive to Reykjavík to sample the delights of the capital. In the city, you can walk down the old town street full of boutiques and restaurants or visit one of the many galleries and museums.  Don’t forget to visit Hallgrímskirkja Church and Perlan, where a revolving restaurant sits on top of the city’s hot water tanks offering a fantastic view over the city. There are also two shopping malls, a botanical garden in a lovely park, a small zoo (with mostly domestic animals), wonderful outdoor, year-round swimming pools, a world class spa, a bowling alley, fitness centers, and many other things to do. It is also possible to book a whale-watching tour out of Reykjavík or even go fishing.
