Here are The Traveling Professor's picks of the best things to do in Iceland:

Blue Lagoon:  I used to think this was too touristy for me but it really is enjoyable.  The crowds are controlled, so there isn't too much of a problem with too many people enjoying the Blue Lagoon.  However, that means reservations should be made well in advance.

Golden Circle Tour:  This is an excellent introduction to Iceland.  It takes about 6-8 hours to see the geysers, gigantic waterfalls, and natural beauty of Iceland.  I recommend a private tour.

South Coast Tour:  Don't miss this one if you love volcanoes, black sand beaches, stunning scenery, waterfalls, and if you're lucky some puffins.  It's a long day out from Reykjavik and again, we recommend a private tour.

City Walk: There are a variety of city walks available in Reykjavik.  It's always good to get an hour or two tour of the city.

Bonus Seasonal Activities:  The Northern Lights go on from about October to March and in the summer, try a whale-watching tour.
