This place is everything that you hope it will be, but so much more.
We did this as our last stop before the airport, and I AM SO THANKFUL we chose to wait!
After non-stop tours, horse back riding, and extensive walking, our bodies were ready to relax and take in all of the benefits of the lagoon.
We picked up our robes and towel, hit the showers, then went straight to the water.
We got there pretty early, so we were able to enjoy the peacefulness of only about 20 or so people.. And really enjoy our quiet time together.
By 10:30, the place was swarming! But it was quite foggy so the crowds didn't really matter.
We enjoyed our silica layering, volcano scrub, and algae mask.. However, the waterfall was absolutely amazing.
Completely massaged all of the knots from carrying backpacks for the duration of the trip. I could have stayed there for hours.
Once we were finished bathing, we had lunch at the Lava Restaurant. A little slow on the service, but they made up for it in presentation and deliciousness!
Truly a perfect way to end our time in Iceland.
I was hoping the reviews I've read wouldn't let me down..
This was the first "official" tour we did after landing in Iceland, and what a great way to start things off!
We were greeted by Sylvia at the entrance to the Brewery - And I wish I could do a review just on her because she was so over the top and just perfectly wonderful to do this tour.
During the tour, you'll get an overview of Iceland's history (I know.. history! But Sylvia makes it fun! I promise!) and during this, you'll sample 4 drinks. And while 4 may not sound like a lot, it is.
You'll even get a treat of a special beer that you can only get at the brewery or at the duty free shop (or so we were told, but we didn't have any luck :( )
Since we did the tour on Friday, all production had closed for the weekend, but we were still able to walk around and see all aspects of the facility.
Again, it was such a great experience!
From Sylvia's 80's dance moves to making sure all of our "Skál"s were LOUD like the vikings!
And, of course, the great assortment of Icelandic Beers.
Would love to be able to return and do this tour again.
