See the Langjökull glacier, if it is a clear day. Admire the Icelandic use of geothermal energy at Friðheimar Tomato Farm. Stroll through the greenhouse and purchase a nice meal at the farm.

Reykjavik: Northern Lights and Secret Lagoon Trip

2. Reykjavik: Northern Lights and Secret Lagoon Trip

Bask in the soothing waters of the Secret Lagoon hot spring while (if you’re lucky) marvelling over the incredible Northern Lights. This classic Icelandic winter experience is the perfect combination of relaxation and inspiration. You will first be picked up from your accommodation in Reykjavík, and once your group is gathered,you will head straight out of the city to the charming village of Fludir. Here, you will find the Secret Lagoon, immersed in nature. This is Iceland’s oldest swimming pool, established in 1891, and is a place where history and natural beauty combine. Watching the auroras descend from the canopy of stars above while basking in the lagoon is an incredible experience. The dancing, swirling lights, usually green but occasionally red, white, purple and blue, will captivate you for hours, and make sure that this evening will stay with you for life. As with many things in nature, however, there are no guarantees that the Aurora Borealis will show. If they are acting elusive and your guide does not believe they will come out, you will get to visit more hot springs instead, or perhaps even go caving as an alternative, based on the desires of your group.

3. From Reykjavik: Private Golden Circle Day Tour by Jeep

Explore Iceland's most famous sights on a private jeep tour of the Golden Circle. After pickup from your accommodation in Reykjavik, drive to Thingvellir National Park. See where the North American and Eurasian tectonic plates are drifting apart, and enjoy spectacular views of Thingvallavatn, the largest natural lake in Iceland.   Continue to the beautiful Laugarvatn Lake, to stop at an organic farm restaurant and enjoy some delicious local food and homemade ice cream. Afterward, visit Strokkur geyser — one of the country's most popular attractions — that erupts every 10 minutes, throwing a column of water 20 or 30 meters into the air. Stop at Gullfoss, known as the Golden Waterfall, where you'll have time to walk around the beautiful canyon on the Hvita River and take plenty of photos. Then discover the Secret Lagoon, a manmade pool dating back to 1891. Walk around the lagoon and see the hot springs, or choose to take a relaxing dip in the waters. On the way back to Reykjavik, stop off at Kerið, a beautiful crater with a volcanic lake inside. Throughout your Golden Circle experience, take in local sights including sheep corrals, Icelandic horses, amazing red pumice hills, and a mine. At the end of your tour, you'll be dropped off back at your accommodation.

Such a lovely night! Unfortunately, due to bad weather, we didn't get to see the Northern Lights. The lagoon is amazing though! The guide was really friendly and knew so much about the area. I would definitely recommend this trip.
