The Blue Lagoon

(A18/A19)

The famous Blue Lagoon resembles an oasis in the middle of an area covered in lava just outside Reykjavík. The warm,  geothermically heated and mineral rich water can be enjoyed all year round. The Blue Lagoon gets its water directly from geothermic springs that run over 2000 meters below the surface, thus keeping the temperature at a comfortable 36-39 degrees Celsius whatever the season.

There is also an indoor lagoon and a geothermic sauna in place, should you want a roof over your head, and the water’s naturally active salts and green algae will help you de-stress from the pressure of everyday life. The white KIS-mud gently cleanses and revitalizes your skin, while the blue-green algae nourishes and softens it. The mineral salts have a relaxing and balancing effect for both body and soul

The Golden Circle

The trip around "The Golden Circle" is an Icelandic classic where you get to experience some of the countrie's most famous attractions all in one day. Explore the natural phenomenon like the hot springs at Geysir, and the mighty waterfall Gullfoss.

The geothermic springs of Geysir are very near Gullfoss. This area boasts Iceland’s most active geysir, Strokkur. Strokkur regularly bursts its majestic column of hot water into the sky every five minutes, so you will have several opportunities to experience this majestic sight. Stroll amongst bubbling mud puddles and steaming hot springs – and really feel the power of the Earth under your feet.

The UNESCO world heritage site of Thingvellir national park is our next stop. The world’s oldest parliament, Alltinget, was assembled here as early as around year 900, and this is also where the European and American continental plates meet. At Thingvellir the escarpment that is caused by the two plates slowly parting can be seen very clearly. After this visit we return to Reykjavík.
