From volcanic power to geothermal serenity: a day in Reykjanes Geopark
Discover Iceland's geothermal heart in the UNESCO recognized Reykjanes Geopark, a land that way created where continents drift apart. Journey through the awe-inspiring volcanic landscapes and explore the freshly-formed lava fields of Fagradalsfjall Volcano. Complete your day with a relaxing and rejuvenating spa experience at Reykjavík’s newest luxury bath, the Sky Lagoon.
Embark on a mesmerizing expedition through the UNESCO-acclaimed Reykjanes Geopark, where the North American and Eurasian tectonic plates meet. Marvel at the vivid, surreal hues of the Seltún's boiling mud pools, painting a masterpiece of nature's own design amidst steaming vents and colorful mineral deposits.
The highlight of our volcanic odyssey is the hike to Fagradalsfjall, Iceland's youngest volcano. After a captivating 40-minute walk, touch the still-warm lava field, narrating tales of recent eruptions.
But the journey doesn't end there. Visit the iconic bridge between continents, a symbolic gateway allowing you to walk the very boundary that separates the world's major land masses. Feel the thrill of standing atop the Mid-Atlantic Ridge, where tectonic titans clash beneath your feet.
Next, witness the sheer might of Gunnuhver, Iceland's greatest mud pool. Feel the vibrations beneath, a testament to the boundless energy rumbling deep within, as towering columns of steam rise to kiss the Icelandic skies.
Having trekked the wilds of Iceland's volcanic majesty, it's time for serenity. Retreat to the idyllic haven of the Sky Lagoon in Reykjavik. Here, nature's raw power transforms into a soothing embrace. Let the geothermal waters, overlooking the dramatic North Atlantic horizon, lull you into relaxation. Delight in the tradition-inspired 7-step spa ritual, an ode to Icelandic bathing culture, ensuring you're pampered and rejuvenated.
Join us for a day where nature's extremes intertwine, from molten fury to the caressing warmth of geothermal waters, crafting an Icelandic tale you'll cherish forever.
