You can enjoy them all year round, but I guess they give you the biggest pleasure during winter months. So what are you waiting for? Pack up your luggage and let’s travel to Iceland!
We have rounded the best places where to go, where to eat and where to sleep in Iceland.
In Iceland, the Blue Lagoon geothermal spa is the place everyone should visit.
The water in the Blue Lagoon Iceland is a beautiful milky electric blue color like nothing we have ever seen. The temperature of water is close to 104 ° F (or 40 ° C) warm all year – which makes the Blue Lagoon such a popular destination in the cold Icelandic winters. Enjoy the mineral rich water which is believed to have curative powers. It’s a must!!
If you are visiting Iceland for the first time we highly recommend this hotel and attraction as your first stop. It really sets up your break well. The blue lagoon is a 5 minute walk from the hotel and is really fun. You can enjoy the private Lagoon at the hotel and it is so lovely place. They also offer spa treatments and massages in and out of the water. The walk from the hotel to the Lagoon is a treat in itself!

The Golden Circle is the ultimate tourist trail in Iceland with its waterfalls and beautiful national park vistas. The Golden Circle consists of three of the most popular tourist sites in Iceland; Þingvellir (Thingvellir) National Park, Geysir hot spring area and Gullfoss waterfall. Very attractive place!
Landmannalaugar is a must-go in Iceland! It’s really spectacular!! For even more breathtaking views, hike down the other side and witness the gorgeous colors of the mountains.
Your first stop at Landmannalaugar has to be the celebrated hot springs that you shouldn’t miss it. There are geothermal hot springs that are open to the public for bathing in the most beautiful natural setting imaginable.
