Come Be Inspired by Iceland

Think of Iceland and you may think of one of the happiest countries in the world. You may think of a land of stunning nature or unpredictable weather. Or majestic waterfalls and energizing hot springs. You may think of state-of-the-art geothermal heating and electric power, of the Golden Circle, or of the largest glaciers in Europe.

While all of these images of Iceland hold true, we urge you to open your mind and enlighten your soul and think of this instead. Think of a land of the unexpected – a nation of joyful, welcoming Icelanders, keen to ensure that your visit is one of genuine pleasure and surprise. Think of a country full of secrets waiting to be discovered or of a rugged landscape so captivating that you will find yourself dreaming of it long after you have returned home.

Think of adventure and magic, 365 days a year with the most wholesome and freshest fish and lamb you’ve ever had the pleasure to taste. Think about a small country of only 327,000 people, that is a little wild on the outside, but warm on the inside – both invigorating and unexpected. Imagine an island divided into different geographical regions, each with its own unique culture and points of interest, but all which share a warmth and spirit true of Iceland.

Iceland. It’s not for everyone. It isn’t for those who go where everyone else goes. It’s not for the conservative and expected traveller. It’s for those who travel the world to experience something different, to come back with stories to tell.

Hot Springs and Bread Tasting – Fontana

Experience sonething no one in the group has ever tried before ! The Fontana steambaths in Laugarvatn village are known for their geothermal hotsprings. They harness this power from the earth in different ways: for heating outside pools and steambaths, but also for „Volcanic Cooking“. Guests can experience the geothermal bakery first hand and see as we dig out bread only few centimeters out of the earth. After the walk, guests are offered to try the bread, served hot from the ground with some butter. This is something you don´t want to miss out on!

Dinner is on your own tonight and we hope you will opt for one of the incredible restaurants in downtown Reykjavik!

Fákasel Horse Park is Iceland’s leading tourist attraction for all things relating to the Icelandic horse and one of the country’s best equine competition facilities. This is a fun, entertaining and educational place to visit.

The Show: Legends of Sleipnir – Horse Theater Performance
At Fákasel Horse Park, you will be introduced to the unique story of the Icelandic horse, its distinctive features and its important role in Icelandic history and culture. Our 45 minute show, The Legends of Sleipnir, employs large-scale multimedia and special effects to weave together history, old Norse mythology and exhibition riding to demonstrate the Icelandic horse’s beauty and uniqueness. The result is a magical theatrical experience that emphasizes the Icelandic horse’s special features and pays tribute to its historical relationship with humans throughout Iceland’s history.

The interior has recently undergone a custom remodel to create a unique, warm and cozy atmosphere and our staff adds that special Icelandic touch which will make you feel right at home. The chef has created an impressive menu featuring the freshest locally-grown ingredients. The result is a menu with a wide selection of delicious food where everyone will find something to their liking.

Watch their swirling wild dance across the night sky in fantastic shapes and colors. The Northern Lights Mystery Tour takes you out of Reykjavik city to the best places to see Northern Lights and witness one of nature’s most spectacular displays.
