The most active geyser, Strokkur, spouts water high into the air every 15 minutes. A visit to the Geysir museum is also included, an informative multimedia exhibition that vividly shows how the forces of nature shaped the country and the people. Finally, but no less spectacular is a visit to the Thingvellir National Park, an area of exceptional beauty and the original site of the oldest existing parliament in the world. (B)

Transfer to the airport via the Blue Lagoon for a chance to enjoy a unique bathing experience before the flight. A high-temperature geothermal field supplies the hot water to the Reykjanes district and steam to run the power plant, and it is the mineral-rich overflow water from this operation that fills the famous lagoon. The geothermal water is pumped up from 2,000 metres below the Earth’s surface and high levels of silica, minerals and algae give the lagoon its rich blue colour. (B)
