The rest of the day is open for your own activities. We suggest a walk in the Old Town area with galleries, museums, restaurants and pubs.

Along the way, stop at the gorgeous Seljalandsfoss waterfall, which you can walk behind (weather and path conditions permitting). You will also stop at the majestic and much-photographed Skógafoss waterfall and visit the Skógar folk museum, to get a taste of how Icelanders lived in centuries past.

Northern Lights hunt:
Tonight take part in a guided northern lights hunt tour. On a dark winter night in Iceland, join a mysterious tour looking for the Aurora Borealis. Far from the glow of Reykjavik city, we hunt for the elusive Northern Lights. From autumn until spring, during clear and cold dark nights it's possible to witness one of nature's most incredible displays: the northern lights, also known as Aurora Borealis. On this evening tour you may be lucky enough to see them swirling and dancing across the sky changing endlessly their colour, shape and size.
*Please note that the northern lights hunt is only available between October 11, 2017 and April 11, 2018 inclusively. In the event that the Northern Lights
have not been observed, a second evening will be offered the next day with no additional cost.

Breakfast at your hotel. Enjoy an introduction to the best-loved natural wonders of Iceland. First, visit Thingvellir National Park, a remarkable historical and geological site which is located by Lake Thingvallavatn, the largest lake in Iceland. The beautiful canyon running through the park is actually the meeting point of two of the earth's tectonic plates. In this very area, the Vikings formed in 930AD what would become the world’s oldest and longest running Parliamentary government.
Next, visit Gullfoss waterfall, where you will see thousands of tons of icy water thundering majestically down double ledges into a deep canyon. Nearby is Geysir geothermal area, where bubbling hot springs and geysers bubble away. Discover Strokkur, the most active geyser in the area. Part of your day will also include an interesting visit to a family farm where organic tomatoes are grown in unique geothermal greenhouses.

The Blue Lagoon’s warms and natural active ingredients; mineral salts, silica and blue green algae help you relax and unwind while the Blue Lagoon white silica mud gently cleanses and exfoliates the skin. The minerals salts balance and relax body and soul.
After having enjoyed all the amenities of the Blue Lagoon, a Flybus will pick you up, ultimately stopping at the central bus terminal, where you will then be redirected to smaller shuttles that will take you to your hotel. Please be sure to let the bus-driver know your hotel's name when boarding the Flybus at the Blue Lagoon.
