Two things many people want to check off their Icelandic bucket list is seeing the northern lights and having the perfect spa day. With this package by Icelandair, it’s now easy to check those two items off the list!
Your getaway will start at your hotel, where Icelandair will have a guided tour bus pick you up, taking you through the Icelandic countryside. You will then reach your destination for the evening: a small town called Laugarvatn. Laugarvatn is situated over a hot spring valley which means its residents get their heating and hot water from geothermal energy. Along with providing heat, geothermal energy means people are able to relax in the various baths and pools!
The tour bus will drop guests off at the Fontana Geothermal Baths, one of the most popular spa attractions in Laugarvatn. Fontana has a wide range of amenities to fit any accommodation or special spa-related need such as geothermal baths and pools, steam baths and Finnish saunas. After taking a dip in the spa, you will be treated to a buffet-style dinner serving authentic Icelandic food with ingredients grown and caught locally.
To end the night, if the weather is just right, you will begin your search for the Northern Lights. But don’t worry, you don’t need to search too hard to find this true spectacle! Iceland is one of the few countries to see this special phenomena often so heading to Laugarvatn is a opportunity you won’t want to miss.
When you book this breathtaking experience, please make sure to dress accordingly to the weather conditions so make sure to plan ahead. And of course, don’t forget swimming attire (and proper etiquette) for the geothermal spa! Pricing starts at $151 per person and children under 11 are free so book today!
