Iceland is a magical country.  You feel like you’re in the land of unicorns at times.  Such an amazing escape, with a combination of outdoor activities, as well as some much-needed pampering.  We’ve put together a short must-do list so you can have a quick get-away as an extra to your European trip.

What to do:

Spa Day

The Blue Lagoon is the most incredible spa experience!  This geothermal spa has everything you need.  The turquoise blue cloudy water is a natural hot spring, and you can indulge yourself by using their natural mud as an instant facial.  Amazing.

The Southern Coast

Take the day to drive the southern coast from Reykyjavik.  You will see the most beautiful waterfalls, as well as the majestic black sand beaches.  This is where you truly feel as if you’re in another world.

Be sure to visit Skogafoss, where you’ll find the Skoga River Waterfall – you’ll seem miniature.
