Our small group size will also let us see some of the off-the-beaten path spots in Iceland :

- Mykvan Hot Springs : We’ll visit the bucket list Blue Lagoon, but Mykvan are less crowded and very relaxing for a perfect zen moment.
- Secret Iceberg Lagoon : Take a zodiac to a “hidden” iceberg lagoon where we’ll be the only ones. Just you and huge icebergs up close & personal!
