Day 1 Arrive Reykjavik

Upon arrival, you will be transferred to the hotel. Reykjavík is the capital and largest city of Iceland. Reykjavik bears the distinction of being the world’s northernmost capital, and for many Icelandic visitors it also serves as a gateway to the rugged adventure options beyond. Proceed to Blue Lagoon to rejuvenate yourself. The geothermal water has a unique composition, featuring three active ingredients Silica, Algae and Minerals. The blue colour comes from the silica and the way it reflects sunlight. During summer there can also be a hint of green in the water. This is the result of the algae, which multiplies quickly when exposed to direct sunlight.  Overnight in Reykjavik
