Day 1: Landing in Keflavik – The Blue Lagoon – Reykjavik

As soon as we left the airport for The Blue Lagoon, I understood, from the appearance of the land around us, that we had indeed arrived in a special place.
 The Blue Lagoon – Natural sea-pools, rich in minerals, and heated by geothermal energy.
The Blue Lagoon is on the way to Reykjavik from the airport, so most tourists arrive there directly from the airport. It's worthwhile preparing a small bag in advance, with a towel for the pool, another towel for the shower, a change of clothes and flip-flops. You can rent a towel at the site for 5 Eur.
The site is very well organized with personal lockers, showers and coffee shops both in and out of the water.
The experience is a pleasant and calming one, although I found the entrance fees to be quite expensive (30 Eur for addult). We recommend checking other similar, less expensive pools, such as those in the Myvatn area.
Reykjavik – We went directly to the lovely Blue House B&B we were staying at – a guest house we recommend and a ten minute drive from the city center. We booked the room through a site called Expedia. Each two rooms share a bathroom and toilet.
After getting organized quickly, we went to see the city center – we parked in the parking lot opposite the opera house, free of charge from the evening hours on. From there, we walked along the beach in the direction of the famous Hallgrímskirkja Church. We went up the church tower, open until 20:00, by elevator - to an observation point of the city. Afterwards we walked through the beautiful city streets in the vicinity of the church. The streets are full of shops, galleries and restaurants. The main shopping street is called Laugavegur Street.
