Icelandair, Iceland’s leading airline, is now offering Reykjavik city breaks with a free day trip to the magnificent Blue Lagoon. The geothermal spa, situated in a lava field on the Reykjanes Peninsula, is one of the country’s most visited attractions and is a must see; just a short drive from the capital city, Reykjavik.
The geothermal seawater that floods the lava formation is piped directly from its original source to the Blue Lagoon. Guests then enjoy the relaxing 40 °C temperatures and the beneficial active ingredients: minerals, silica and algae and their positive effects on the skin.
Blue Lagoon offers spa treatments and massages that actually take place in the lagoon, in the open air. The spa area is spacious and more than one treatment can take place simultaneously, making it possible for couples and friends to have a treatment at the same time.
The geothermal spa also accommodates the Lagoon bar, which serves guests relaxing in the lagoon with light refreshments such as drinks, ice cream, fruits and baguettes. The Lava Restaurant, also situated at the Blue Lagoon is built into the lava surroundings. The restaurant offers a delicious a la carte menu as well as a great selection for kids, making it ideal for all the family to enjoy whilst admiring the breathtaking surroundings.
Icelandair’s city break offer includes return economy class flights from either London, Manchester or Glasgow, as well as 3 nights accommodation, Blue Lagoon transfer and entrance fee, plus breakfast at selected hotels.
