Pick up in the morning for the Blue Lagoon tour. The Blue Lagoon is a unique geothermal spa where guests can relax in warm geothermal seawater in the surroundings of magical lava fields and black sandy beaches.
The geothermal seawater is led directly to the Blue Lagoon from wells as deep as 2000 meters and the water stays warm and inviting throughout the year.
The Blue Lagoon’s white silica mud gently cleanses the skin and has a revitalizing effect while the blue green algae softens the skin. Bathing in this surreal environment is a unique experience no one should miss. Return to Reykjavķk in the afternoon.

Day 3. The Golden Circle Classic


The Golden Circle Classic Tour takes you from Reykjavik city to Žingvellir National Park, arguably the most important site in Iceland in terms of history, culture, and geology.

A UNESCO world heritage site, Žingvellir National Park is home to Iceland‘s largest natural lake and the place where the tectonic plates of North America and Eurasia split and drift apart. Žingvellir is also the birth place of the Old Icelandic Commonwealth and the Alžingi assembly, where Iceland’s most powerful leaders met to decide on legislation and carry out brutal viking-age justice.

From Žingvellir, the tour continues through an area of beautiful scenery towards two of Iceland's greatest natural attractions at Gullfoss waterfall and Geysir hot spring area.

At Gullfoss waterfall you can take a short walk down a pathway and get right up close to this powerful waterfall and feel the mist of glacial water on your face as it cascades down into the narrow Hvķtįrgljśfur Canyon.

Lunch break is usually taken at Gullfoss Cafe or at the service center at the Geysir area.

The Geysir area home of "The Great Geysir" hot spring, which all geysers are named after, this area is an impressive collage of bubbling mud pools, hissing steam vents, and colourful algae deposits. It also features one of the world's most reliable fountain geyser, Strokkur hot spring, that every 4 to 8 minutes blasts out a column of super heated water up to 20 metres into the air.

Highlights: Žingvellir - Gullfoss Waterfall and Geysir Hot Springs
