Sounds like a great three days. One thing I would add for day 1. Go to Reynisfjara, which is between Vik and Dyrholaey. It is a beautiful black sand beach with basalt cliffs and volcanic rock formations jutting out of the water. There are also a lot of puffins who live on the cliffs.

It is doable if you are visiting in summer. It is true, Reynisfjara and Hálsanefshellir cave is a must [original VT link] while visiting this area. Have a look at my Iceland pages and subpage on Iceland for photos and tips. All the best, Regína

It is doable if you are visiting in summer time. It is true, Hálsanefshellir cave by Reynisfjara is not to be missed while in this area of Vík. [original VT link]

We found Dyrholaey to be a wonderful place to observe puffins; well woth the stop, Skógafoss and Seljalandsfoss waterfalls are definintely worth stopping at; make sure you take some waterproof clothing to Seljalandsfoss, as you will be able to walk behind the waterfall.

Hekla we only saw from a distance and Landmannalaugar is an area that is good if you are planning some hiking, otherwise I might be tempted to skip it.

When visiting Gullfoss, Geysir (actually Strokkur is the geyer that is quite active), and Þingvellir, you should also plan a short detour to the Kerio crater that is also in the area. They are all very close to Reykjavik.
