Iceland – Northern Lights and Natural Spa Weekend

  • Details

Details

For a relatively small island in the North Atlantic Ocean, Iceland is dotted with an incredible number of natural wonders and attractions. This holiday boasts the chance to relax, unwind and escape from day-to-day life in some of the most incredible, atmospheric natural spas in the world. You will also head out on some Northern Lights hunts during your short break to wonder some more at just how powerful and beautiful mother nature can be.

Iceland is quite unlike anywhere else in the world. With a population of just 350,000 people (which is slightly smaller than the city of Bristol in the UK!) but more landmass than Portugal, it is one of the most sparsely populated countries on Earth. It is also statistically one of the most eco-friendly countries as 99% of electricity in Iceland is produced using renewable energy sources.

The scenery in Iceland is absolutely stunning regardless of which season you visit.  It is defined by its dramatic landscapes laden with volcanoes, hot springs, geysers, lava fields and waterfalls. Around 11% of Iceland is covered in glaciers. Visiting Iceland is like stepping into a living geography textbook and it is impossible to spend any time there and not become fascinated by its unique landscape.

The Icelandic people are innovative in developing iconic outdoor experiences which incorporate the incredible landscape. During this holiday, you will visit the Sky Lagoon, a fantastic thermal spa inspired by nature and culture which opened in 2021 and also the lesser known Hvammsvik spa, an equally awesome spa area with natural geothermal pools to relax - just don't tell too many people about this wonderful hidden gem! During the trip you will also head out on a Northern Lights Cruise to escape all light pollution and maximise your chances of an Aurora sighting. 

This short break will allow you to relax and unwind whilst getting back to nature. We have a range of tours you can add to the standard programme, you can personalise your time in Iceland with a tour of the city of Reykjavik or a day trip exploring the famous Golden Circle. Please see the 'Personalise' tab for more information.

The ride commences every 15 to 20 minutes and the whole experience is a great introduction to this remarkable country. It takes around 35 minutes in total, you can see the price and more information in the ‘Personalise‘ section of our website.

Dinner at Höfnin Restaurant is included for tonight’s evening meal. harbour (3 courses are included – please advise of any food allergies at the time of booking. Drinks not included.) Located close to the harbour, Höfnin offers diners fantastic views of the marina and is renowned for its fresh seafood dishes and focus on classic Icelandic cuisine with a modern twist.

Following breakfast, you will be transferred to Hvammsvik Spa; an intimate setting to escape the crowds and be at one with nature. The team here promise a unique and authentic experience as you dwell in their eight natural hot springs and that glide into the ocean surrounded by majestic mountains and black beaches 

There are changing facilities, private showers, a steam room, restaurant and complimentary paddle boards available to use. Don’t forget your swimwear and a towel! The whole excursion will last approximately 4.5 hours. 

After a relaxing day, this evening you will set off on an exciting Northern Lights cruise. This voyage takes between 1.5 – 2.5 hours and you will travel far away from the bright lights of Reykjavik to, hopefully, catch a glimpse of the Northern Lights whilst out at sea. Even if you are not successful in your quest this is a great adventure to share with your travelling companions.

For your final day in Iceland, you can choose to explore at your own pace today or choose from our selection of activities. For lunch, we recommend a visit to one of the three food markets within walking distance of the hotel. Reykjavik is fast becoming a culinary capital, but with the twist of the informal atmosphere favoured by the Icelandic’s, it tends to be these food markets or street food vans that are amongst the most popular places for locals to go for some delicious food.

At 15.00 you will be picked up from the hotel and transferred to the brand-new Sky Lagoon which opened in 2021 just a few kilometres from downtown Reykjavik.  Sky Lagoon has been designed to draw inspiration from the local nature and heritage but with a modern, luxurious twist.

The awesome new spa experience has a huge (264ft long!) natural geothermal infinity pool overlooking the dramatic North Atlantic Ocean.  It is home to a great sauna which, thanks to the largest window in Iceland, boasts some epic views of the wild landscape outside.

Once you have checked in, you will be invited to start on the 7-step spa experience which is based on Icelandic traditions designed as a “rejuvenating journey that awakens your senses and leaves your skin healthy and glowing. It combines warm and cold waters, warm steam, dry heat and fresh air.”

After you are fully refreshed and glowing from your time in the spa, you will be transferred back to Reykjavik for a final evening in this stunning city.

Additional Info

Please note: This holiday is a city break and as such operates quite differently to some of our other holidays in more remote locations. Because of your central base in the city, your activities will start at various meeting points (full details and directions will be provided in your final travel documents) which you will need to walk to (or arrange your own taxi unless otherwise stated) in good time for the activity to begin. You will then normally be met by a bus which will either take you directly out on your activity or to a central meeting point from where you will then head out on your adventure.

For environmental reasons and to pass on the cost saving benefit to our clients on some of our holidays based within a city, we may also make use of scheduled shared airport shuttle buses. These will stop near your hotel but there may be a short walk (with your luggage) due to traffic restrictions.  To check what is standard within your itinerary please check the ‘what’s included’ section. We can arrange private taxi transfers if you prefer (upgrade costs will apply). Our travel experts will be happy to provide more information.

Due to the city location, the group sizes for activities and transfers will be larger than some of our other holidays. We have lots of itineraries to suit everyone. So, if you enjoy the buzz of a city and like to explore its sights and sounds in your free time, then this holiday is a great option for you. If you prefer a more remote destination with activities on site, then please ask one of our travel experts who would be very happy to make some suggestions.
