What You Can Expect

Viking Horse-Riding Tour and Blue Lagoon Including Admission Fee

Blue Lagoon, Iceland

Your Viking adventure begins with your choice of morning or afternoon pickup at your Reykjavik hotel and a short drive to the stables near the city outskirts. Introduced by Vikings in the 9th century, the Icelandic horse is the only breed in the country and is still closely related to those used by the Norse warriors, thanks to Iceland’s strict equine import laws. Mount one of the stable, good-tempered horses and set off through the rugged countryside. Feel like a true explorer as you cross the remote landscape, taking in views of icy peaks in the distance.

After a 1,5-hour ride, return to the stables and board your coach for the drive to the Blue Lagoon — Iceland’s famous geothermal spa. Spend several hours of leisure time here, soaking in the steamy, baby-blue water surrounded by volcanic rock formations. Treat your skin to a natural mask of silica mud, let waterfalls work out any muscle tension, and clear out pores in the steam room or sauna.

Upgrade to include a spa comfort pack featuring a towel, skin care samples, algae mask and a beverage. Visit several on-site cafes for more refreshments (own expense), and purchase an in-water massage or body scrub for a truly rejuvenating experience. Once you’re completely relaxed, travel by coach back to your Reykjavik hotel or guest house at one of three different departure times.
