1. Requirements For Your Trip :

Try to list down how your vacation should be, to put it in one word set a Theme to your vacation. Theme would depend on whom your Travelling with is it your girlfriend or partner, a family trip or is with your friends. This will set tonality for the trip which will be a filter for you to choose the type of cities you would want to visit. Secondly comes the Budget, It again depends on how many people are on the trip and age category and cities you would like to cover and the type of accommodation you would prefer, as different cities would have different pricing range this will help you to filter among the choices left. Thirdly how many cities you would like to cover in seven days, you could stay in one city for 7 Days, You could stay in 2 cities for 7 days so this will act as another filter to consolidate.

2. Logistics : 

An Important factor in a week-long vacation is logistics. For Example, it’s not possible to visit 7 Cities in 7 days as the Travelling time, mental and physical well-being should also be taken into consideration irrespective of how super fit you are. So do not keep unrealistic expectations for yourself. By Logistic I mean to see the landing time of the flights, Connecting flights availability, Check-in Check-out time in Accommodations. By doing this you’ll have a peaceful experience also you won’t be running in a marathon to catch you transport one place to another and not able to enjoy the beauty of the cities what it offers. An Ideal Itinerary for a Weeklong Europe Trip would be 2 Cities for 6 Nights 7 days or at the Maximum 3 Cities. More than that you would be cramping your trip and you would miss out on enjoying the trip. Connectivity is another thing you’ll have to keep in mind i.e. For Example Switzerland Zurich to France (Paris) is good connectivity and not time-consuming. Paris to Iceland for 7 day Europe trip should not be considered as connectivity flights will be an issue duration of travel will be high and due to this budget will also shoot up. So you should be aware of these factors which will help you to plan a smooth vacation.

III. Reykjavik, Iceland :

I would personally suggest having a week-long trip to Iceland and not interlink it with any other place. Landing in the capital city and enjoying the attractions like Hallgrímskirkja, Sun Voyager, Harpa Concert Hall, and Old Harbour and Cover the Golden Circle depending on your convenience, Kindly avoid traveling during the winter season if your opting for self-drive exploration as the roads would be slippery.
