Your home amongst the lava fields

Located within a short drive of Iceland’s Keflavík airport and within walking distance of the renowned Blue Lagoon, the Northern Light Inn offers a perfect ‘home away from home’ for this 3 night break. A stunning location from which to see northern lights in the winter with dedicated lounge and optional wake up call service, the hotel is also a great summer retreat from which to take advantage of the endless hours of daylight. The modern wellness spa at the hotel featuring saunas, a steam room and a relaxation room is complimentary to all Discover the World guests who book this 3-night break. And whilst there you can even book yourself in for a floating therapy in one of Iceland’s only floating bubbles.

Explore and relax in equal measure

Benefitting from the use of our exclusive digital travel guide iDiscover, explore the sights of the nearby Reykjanes Peninsula. Walk across the bridge over two continents, walk around the  steamy Krysuvik mud pools, be amazed by the mysterious Gunnuhver geothermal area or head to Reykjanesviti beach, where Iceland’s oldest lighthouse sits amongst a dramatic rocky landscape. In the peninsula you can also get a taste of Iceland’s passion for music at the national museum of Rock ‘n’ Roll or delve into its history by visiting the Viking World exhibition. After a busy day sightseeing, return to the Northern Light Inn for some complimentary waffles and coffee in the comfortable lounge or relax in the wellness spa before enjoying the culinary delights offered at Max’s Restaurant. If you would like to extend your stay in Iceland, the capital Reykjavik and the wonders of the south capital are just a short drive away.

Bathe in geothermal waters

Geothermal activity has its benefits in Iceland and not only for providing an endless supply of energy to the nation but also great opportunities for outdoor bathing, even in freezing temperatures. Being so close to the mystical blue waters of the Blue Lagoon, a swim in this iconic site is a must do whilst staying at the hotel. Also, whilst exploring the golden circle you may wish to visit the secret lagoon, a charming bathing spot surrounded by idyllic scenery.

Authentic holidays for passionate travellers
A short drive from Geysir and Gullfoss is the Faxi waterfall - definitely worth a stop when visiting the Golden Circle, and is less known and quieter than the other waterfalls in the area!
