Helpful information for Irish tourists planning a stopover in Iceland
How long do you need in Iceland?
For first-timers, 3-4 days is generally a good amount of time to spend exploring Iceland. Anything shorter than that will require you to be quite selective about which sights you’d like to tick off.
If you’re visiting Iceland as part of a stopover from Ireland before heading on to another destination, it’s worth planning ahead to decide which must-see locations are on your list. This will help you to work out how many days you’ll need in total.
