"Heli-happy Hour" or "Heli-Romance"?

A few things for your bucket list in 2019

  1. Be Well

Blue Lagoon’s new The Retreat will take you to an otherworldly spa experience. Explore elements sourced from the volcanic earth and Arctic geothermal seawater, including a steam-carved cave inside the 800-year-old lava, in-water treatments, a subterranean massage suite and magically infused beauty treatments. As far as everyday affordable options, simply take a swim in any of Iceland’s public pools, then lounge in a hot tub, with a quick visit to a cold tub – then head over to a steam room – all while chatting with locals catching up on today’s topics (or gossip).

 

  1. Be Arty

In addition to the Reykjavík Art Museum on Tryggvagata, two additional museums are a part of the Art Museum collectives: Ásmundarsafn and Kjarvalsstaðir. Both are in ideal walking distance from the heart of city centre. Scope the collections and enjoy a cappuccino and pastry or knock down an Espresso Martini. The latter might offer an easier invitation to visit some of the independent art galleries on the way back to your hotel and purchase a piece of Iceland to bring back home.

 

  1. Be Wild

Get a bird’s-eye view of Icelandic nature. Go on a Heli-happy Hour, have a Heli-Romance or simply take a standard helicopter tour, linger in the chopper and see it all from above, where there are no bad angles for the picture of your dreams.
