Reykjavik. The jewel of the north and perhaps the world's most amazing capital. Transform your weekend break into a full blown adventure in Iceland's buzzing capital city. The city provides an unbeatable base for exploring Iceland's natural wonders and acts as a place to relax after a long day's exploring.
This is one of Reykjavik's most central hotels. It is excellent value for money and is a beacon of cleanliness and organisation. The complimentary breakfasts are wonderful and the rooms are spacious and well equiped. The Fosshotel Baron is one of Reykjavik's cheapest hotels - I can't for the life of me think why.
What many think of when they think of Iceland. The misty blue waters of the geothermal spa provide relaxation and stimulation in just a few exhilerating hours. The Blue Lagoon is only 40 minutes from Reykjavik's city centre and even closer to the countries International Airport in Keflavik. This is certainly an attraction NOT to be missed.
Ever wanted to see a breathtaking waterfall which rivals Niagra in sheer beauty and power? How about a hot spring which erupts with a plume of boiling water every five minutes? Surely, the dividing line between Europe and America is something not to be missed? All of these things can be found in Thingvellir. This is the ultimate Icelandic experience and is possitively essential. See "The Golden Circle" tour at IcelandExcursions.is
