Travel to Iceland
Active vulcanoes, gushing geysers, natural hot springs and boiling mud pools, just to name a few of the most amazing wonders you can find on our earth - all on display in wonderful Iceland. Nature's power only serves to intensify the islands' special beauty, here you can see the vivid colors of the Blue Lagoon set smack in the middle of an impressive moon landscape, caused by the outburst and layers of lava deposited by vulcanoes. Lonely streets are the only obstacles dividing endless spaces, which is quite unique for such a small country.
And then there are the Northern Lights... To experience the Aurora Borealis is simply stunning and when you are visiting Iceland during the winter months, you would not want to mis joining a Northern Lights safari or see the lights on your own.

Travel Highlights Iceland
Iceland is a perfect spot for animal watching. Starting with whale watching. There are more than 20 different species around Iceland, from Humpback to Orca. But it is also perfect for bird watching - here you can see the Atlantic puffins Iceland is famous for.
You need a little bit of luck to see them, but from September till April the chances are good to witness the Northern Lights. When the weather and Aurora forecast are right you can see them anywhere on the island outside the cities. Just keep looking for really dark spaces and be patient. And if you are not lucky, visit the Northern Lights Museum in Reykjavic, where you can learn a lot about this miracle.
Blue Lagoon, Iceland's most famous travel highlight, is a natural hot spring built into a geothermal Spa. Here you can enjoy the warm, milky blue water while sitting in the middle of an snowcapped vulcano landscape.
On a Golden Circle tour you can combine visiting three of Iceland's main sights: start your tour with Thingvellir National Park. Here you can witness the result of the tectonic plates moving a few centimeters every year. Then your trip will bring you to Geysir, where water is shot up in the air for 30 meters every few minutes. Your journey will then proceed to Gulfoss, the golden waterfall.
Iceland's glacier lagoon is one of the islands true highlights. Even during summer you can enjoy the impressive icebergs arising from the sea. Take a guided walking tour or a boat trip to get the best possible impression of this area.
The 'smoky bay' has all the advantages of a capital city in a quite relaxing atmosphere created by, among other things, the beautiful old houses. Icelandic people work hard and party even harder, so it is no surprise that there is great nightlife in Reykjavic.
Program idea Iceland
The Blue Lagoon
the Blue Lagoon is stunning in its otherworldly lava surroundings. We will stop there for approx. 1,5 hour for a unique spa experience, enjoying the luxurious comfort of the warm lagoon water.
A special “Blue Lagoon” cocktail can be served during the bath by waiters/waitresses, a great way to get into the group spirit at the beginning of the trip.
(Optional) Blue Lagoon has added new spa features to the geothermal spa. Waterfall, steam bath, sauna and an area designed for in-water Blue Lagoon spa massage and treatments are among the new additions. Applying white Silica mud on face and body is for many an essential part of the Blue Lagoon experience. The silica has now been placed in especially designed wooden boxes placed by the lagoon creating an easy access to this natural ingredient.
New scientific studies show that both Blue Lagoon silica and algae have effective properties against skin aging. Blue Lagoon silica and algae are key ingredients in Blue Lagoon skin care.
