5 day WINTER itinerary – Golden Circle + South Coast


💥NEWS FLASH: planning a November or January trip is NOT the same as planning a June or August trip! ⁣

Like did you know that…

  • You can’t access certain places during the winter months? ⁣
  • Or that road conditions limit how far you can drive?
  • And daylight hours drastically cut down how much you can see in a day?

Don’t let a major hiccup like that ruin your vacation.

The good news is that my winter itineraries are perfectly crafted with these factors already accounted for!

SO if you are…

👉🏼 Ready to have a stress free Iceland trip but confused about how much to fit in one day?
👉🏼Sick and tired of researching how much time to plan for each stop or how long it takes to get from place to place?
👉🏼Want an itinerary you’re excited about…but are overwhelmed by how to put it all together?

Hi 🙋🏼‍♀️ I created this itinerary just for you!

Forget about wondering where you should stay each night or how long to plan for the stop at that waterfall.

Stop relying on random blog posts and piecing together inaccurate information.

This itinerary has been crafted to solve your biggest question: how much can be done in one day.
