to one of the highlights of the Iceland experience – the world-famous Blue Lagoon. This amazing natural spa is based around the unique properties of the geothermal seawater in the lagoon. The geothermal water originates 2,000 meters below the surface, where freshwater and seawater combine at extreme temperatures. The water has a unique composition of three active ingredients — Silica, Algae and Minerals — and the blue color comes from the Silica and the way it reflects sunlight. You can enjoy a drink while you relax in the lagoon, position yourself under the waterfall, apply a Silica mud mask, or simply enjoy the healing powers of the Blue Lagoon. After your geothermal experience, you’ll return to Reykjavik, check into your hotel, and enjoy an evening at leisure. Hotel Fron (B)

Iceland is one of the most spectacular destinations on earth, yet the tourism infrastructure remains underdeveloped relative to other European destinations and typical American standards. In particular, the hotels in Iceland are much more basic in their amenities and typically have smaller rooms than what you might be accustomed to.
