If you take an organized tour, reserve a few days in advance

I would rent a car and stay in Reykjavik that first night. It will still be light out and you can easily still wander all over Reykjavik before going to bed. In the morning, I would head either to the Golden Circle with a bit of the south coast, or up to Snaefellsness, and then stay in Reykjavik again, or even an hour away. Then in the morning you could wander Reykjavik a bit and do a local pool before heading to the airport. Having a car would allow you to see so much more than a tour. Having been to Iceland a number of times, I personally would opt for Snaefellsness as it is not nearly as crowded as the south coast and you get a real variety, so it is like seeing a mini Iceland. On your way back south, hit Hvammsvik Hot Spring if you want a soak.

I did both the South Coast and the Golden Circle and I loved the South Coast tour more. You see more waterfalls, the black beach and the puffins.
Went to the Sky Lagoon too, but that was part of my Golden Circle tour.
