Set among snow-topped mountains and volcanic surrounds, Reykjavik is the energetic gateway city to a land of rugged adventures. As the planet's most northerly capital, Reykjavik greets you with a crisp, clean Icelandic breeze before charming you with its blend of small village feel and big city passion. Looking out across the sea to glacier views, this little city is split in half by the brilliant waters of Tjornin Lake and brims with highbrow museums, first-class geothermal pools and stylish restaurants.

Amble around these friendly and colourful streets before uncovering Iceland's more remote and isolated pockets that hold all-natural wonders of otherworldly lava fields and bubbling mud pools.

Silfra snorkelling Silfra snorkelling

Snorkel in some of the clearest water on the planet in Silfra, a tectonic rift valley in Þingvellir National Park, down a narrow canyon in the lava field located between the continents of America and Europe. The water in Silfra is a mixture of ground water from the surrounding area and melt water from Langjökull glacier in the highlands. It takes the glacial water decades to filter through the massive lava field before it enters the fissure. This makes the water in Silfra one of the purest and clearest in the world, the underwater visibility, in the heavenly blue water, is normally 70-80 meters, better than anywhere else in the world.

The Blue Lagoon: Luxury Package The Blue Lagoon: Luxury Package

The Blue Lagoon geothermal spa is one of the most visited attractions in Iceland. Temperatures in the bathing and swimming area of the lagoon average 37–39°C (98–102°F) and the waters are rich in minerals like silica. The lagoon is man-made and fed by the water output of the nearby geothermal power plant Svartsengi, where super-heated water is vented from the ground near a lava flow and used to run turbines that generate electricity. After going through the turbines, the steam and hot water pass through a heat exchanger to provide heat for a municipal water heating system. Then the water is fed into the lagoon for recreational and medicinal users to bathe in.

Your Luxury Package includes entrance to the lagoon as well as both a silica and algae mask, a drink, and use of a towel, bath robe and slippers so you can enjoy the beautiful Blue Lagoon in comfort and style. You will also receive a Spa Journey set which includes samples of their most popular skincare products.
