With 120 rooms and apartments, this three star hotel in downtown Reykjavík is open all year.

Blue Lagoon is one of the top attractions in Iceland for both locals and guests. The water is rich in salt, silica, and various minerals that soothe both body and soul. Laugardalur has the country’s largest outdoor swimming pool as well as hot tubs, jacuzzi, and water slides. This family park includes botanical gardens, farm animals, an ice skating rink, and many other activities for the entire family.

Krisuvik is a geothermal field where visitors can get up close to steam holes and bubbling mud pools. For a truly unique experience, schedule a boat cruise to Lundey. This tiny island is home to a large population of puffins. Although it is not possible to go ashore, the views of the cliffs where the puffins make their homes are best from the boat.
