Reykjavik Excursions has really good tours, in case you are interested (or want to replicate by car). Stop by the Blue Lagoon either from/to the airport (the flybus will coordinate this for you)- touristy but not to be missed. The best book I found on Iceland is Lonely Planet and the iceland website is excellent and will give you more info than anyone on this board can (Iceland has a top notch tourist infrastructure so I won't reinvent the wheel by giving you a small sample of ideas). Just strolling around Reykjavik is a treasure and very pleasant (I loved the National Museum of Iceland and the pond in the center of town, and checking out the cafes and shops on Langavaur (sp) street). I have not seen but heard wonderful things about the Harpa Concert center where they hold music and other events - it's a very modern structure along the waterfront, which also has a very cool modern ship statute. There are too many fine restaurants to mention, but for something unique, try having the Icelandic lamb or puffin (bird)- the lobster is outstanding, but pricey. Check out tripadvisor to get more ideas...
