ITINERARY – 4 DAYS
DAY 1 REYKJAVIK
Early morning arrival from the USA to Keflavik Airport. Independent transfer by Flybus to Reykjavik via the Blue Lagoon. The Blue Lagoon is one of Iceland’s most popular attractions, a natural geothermal pool in the middle of a large and dramatic lava field and an oasis that owes its existence to a nearby geothermal power plant, looming large over the aqua tinted waters. Stop for a refreshing bath or a swim in the inviting, rejuvenating and pleasantly warm mineral-rich water (37°C-39°C/98-102°F), reputed for its healing properties. Bathing in this surreal environment is a unique experience no one should miss. The Blue Lagoon’s warm water and natural active ingredients like mineral salts, silica and blue green algae help you relax and escape the stress and strain of daily life. When you are ready to depart, continue to Reykjavik (several bus departures during the day). Dinner on own. Overnight at the Centerhotel Plaza or similar.
