Iceland, Blue Lagoon.

South western Iceland and the Golden Circle.

A visit to Iceland is never complete without a trip to the Blue Lagoon, a geothermal spa rich in minerals like silica and sulfur with water temperatures ranging between 37 and 40 degrees Celsius. You can also enjoy a face mask and glass of champagne while you relax in the silky blue water. Be sure to grab a meal at Lava Restaurant before you leave, it is quite expensive but worth every cent. If you really want the full Blue Lagoon experience I would recommend staying at the Silica Hotel.

It is a 7 minute walk from the main lagoon but here you will enjoy your own private lagoon away from the crowds. The Golden Circle is a 300 km route not far from the capital, Reykjavík. It is a very popular drive and is offered by most tour companies. This is one of the busier attractions so be aware that there will be a lot of tourists. On this route you will get to see the Geysir hurl boiling water up to 70 metres in the air.

Geysir erupts roughly every 10 minute so you will have a few opportunities to photograph it. A little further along the route you will get to enjoy the awesome power of the Gullfoss Waterfall, a mammoth three-step fall.
