Day 3


Reykjavik

Today is at leisure or you can opt to take one of our suggested optional tours.

Optional Activity - The Blue Lagoon: The Blue Lagoon is a unique geothermal spa situated in a vast lava field on Reyjanes Peninsula. Simmering around 37 to 39°C the Blue Lagoon's waters contain minerals and salts essential for wellbeing as well as an algae that stimulates the skin’s natural collagen production.

The Blue Lagoon offers variety of recreational options besides bathing in its milky blue waters. You can take a walk in the Lagoon’s spectacular surroundings, relaxing in a geothermal steam bath or release the stress from your shoulders under the Blue Lagoon's waterfall.

For a truly unique experience pamper yourself with an outdoor massage or one of the spa treatments available there.

Optional Activity - Viking Horse Riding & Blue Lagoon: This combination of the Viking horse riding tour and The Blue Lagoon is for those who don’t have too much time but still want to make the most of it. Get acquainted with the Icelandic horse which is a breed that has remained virtually unchanged since the Vikings brought it to Iceland in the 9th century. Enjoy a one hour riding tour on the outskirts of the capital. After the healthy riding experience, head to the Blue Lagoon (as above).

Optional Activity - Northern Lights Tour: Experience the mysterious and beautiful Northern Lights in Iceland. Watch their swirling wild dance across the night sky in fantastic shapes and colours. The tour takes you out of the city to the best places to see the Northern Lights and witness one of nature's most spectacular displays.

The season for Northern Lights in Iceland extends from the tail end of summer from September through winter and well into April. The best time to see the Northern Lights is in the middle of winter when the weather is the coldest and when it is the darkest.

Obviously there is no guarantee that the aurora will perform for you, but with this tour you'll have the best possible chance of seeing them if they do.
