Whale Watching Tours
There are many tours available that will take you out to spot these magnificent creatures. Whale watching is best in the summer months, preferably April through September, when the area becomes a feeding ground for various whale species including the Orca, Minke, Humpback, and Blue Whales.
Blue Lagoon Spa
This mineral-rich attraction is minutes from the Keflavik International airport, making it easily accessible via car or bus. The average temperature of the water is 102 ºF and is renewed every 2 days. Explore the lagoon, enjoy the indoor and outdoor area, the bar, or choose from various spa options available.
These breathtaking Fjords are located in a popular peninsula full of great attractions. Be sure to plan well and leave time to really explore all this mountain area has to offer. You can visit a myriad of special sites, such as the Icelandic Sea Monster Museum or the famous Látrabjarg cliff.
Skogafoss is the most scenic fall in Iceland and the perfect place for you to get a shot with a double rainbow. With a drop of over 197 feet, the view is spectacular. There is also a legend of gold that lies within the falls. Take your chance and search if you dare.
Silfra is an amazing dive spot located in Thingvellir National Park. It is the rift between the North American and Eurasian tectonic plates. The tectonic plates here shift roughly 2 cm every year and the shifting of the earth creates new caverns and tunnels. The three main dive/snorkel sites are; Silfra Hall, Silfra Cathedral and Silfra Lagoon. With extremely clean and clear water that you can safely drink and a visibility of over 300 feet, there is plenty to see and enjoy.
