  • Day 1: Wonders of the Blue Lagoon & Reykjavik

    You will be met in the arrivals hall at Keflavik International Airport by a private driver who will bring you to your first experience on your trip: the world famous Blue Lagoon geothermal spa*. You will have 1.5 hours to spend at the lagoon, relaxing in the heated, mineral-rich, milky blue water. However, if you want more time at the lagoon, a longer visit can be arranged for an added cost. After relaxing in the soothing waters surrounded by lava rocks, you will be driven to your accommodation in Reykjavík. After checking in, you can spend the rest of your day exploring the charming capital of Reykjavik at your leisure. The pond in city centre is an ideal place to stroll during long summer nights, and checking out the lively atmosphere of Reykjavik's old harbour neighbourhood is highly recommended.

    Spend the night in Reykjavík.

    Included Activity: The Blue Lagoon Comfort Experience including entrance to the Blue Lagoon, loan of towel, silica mud mask and a drink of your choice.

    *Those who are arriving late in the afternoon/evening, your travel consultant can move the Blue Lagoon visit to your departure transfer.

Reviews

We don’t like to brag, so we’ll let our happy customers do it for us.

Everything was great

Everything was great. You made our stay very memorable and extremely comfortable.

Everything was planned perfectly

Overall, our experience with Nordic Visitor was fantastic. Our travel consultant was very helpful and always there to answer any questions we might have. Everything was planned perfectly, I would not change a thing! 

Best trip of my life

I really felt like I was taken care of by you guys. This was the best trip of my life and best honeymoon I could ask for.

 

We did not want to go home

This entire trip was perfection. No matter where we stayed, the staff were always friendly and helpful, the food was always delicious and the views were always stunning. I've already sent several friends and co-workers a link to the Nordic Visitor website after they expressed an interest in our trip. We had a fantastic experience. Our visit to Iceland had quite an impact on us, we did not want to go home and can't wait to visit again. Looking forward to booking other trips with you in the future!

Your company thought of everything

Honestly felt nothing was left out and the trip couldn't have gone any better and all 6 of us that were on this are in full agreement on that. Your company thought of EVERYTHING. I cant' even express how easy it was to work with your company and how everything was thought out and delivered to us. Even if we didn't know we were going to need it.

We loved it

We both put this down as our best holiday ever. we loved it. The itinerary was superb and the map with marked places together with the vouchers and printed material invaluable.. we had many highlights - and loved the places we stayed - particularly Hofsstadir, Vogar farm and Sel. The marked route was great and we did follow the advice given (mostly!) with some forays to explore once we were comfortable with the setup. The food was excellent everywhere. We did the history students walking tour on the day we left which was excellent and we would recommend as a good way to learn about iceland and the city.
