1. The Blue Lagoon
It would be a pity to book an Iceland honeymoon and not experience the country’s famous multi-day spa sessions. The Blue Lagoon is your chance at relaxation that you’ve only dreamed about. Located in the Reykjanes peninsula, accessible from both the Reykjavik Airport as well as the Keflavik International Airport, it’s a geothermal spa with milky-blue waters and silica. It’s especially soothing if you’ve been engaging in strenuous activities.
There is a public Blue Lagoon, which can get rather crowded, while the Retreat Hotel’s lagoon is separated from the public spa and offers a more intimate experience. In either case, you can cuddle up in healing waters and even enjoy the float-up bar’s selection. You can also enjoy a couple’s spa treatment that takes place in the water atop floating mattresses! Of all Iceland adventures, this is truly an experience worth your time.
Located in the northern region of the country, Akureyri is a great destination for an Iceland honeymoon. This charming town boasts numerous hotels and attractions, including a world famous tourist route known as the Diamond circle. Take walks on the central streets and enjoy the fresh air only available in a city surrounded by huge mountains and the ocean.
Akureyri retains the charm of a modest destination with big city views and attractions, including Scandinavian architecture, a beer spa, natural baths and the Whale Watching Husavik.
Reykjavik is arguably one of the coolest capital cities in the world! Once you arrive, plan a night or two out and about in this magnificent city to experience Iceland’s amazing culture. It’s home to a thriving restaurant and bar scene with modern Icelandic cuisine and great drinks.
Make time, too, for day trips. Iceland adventure tours often include the Golden Circle and Secret Lagoon, whale watching, hot spring hunts, horseback riding tours and whisky tasting among others activities. Within the city you can visit the Reykjavik Northern Lights Center, a unique museum dedicated to teaching visitors about the Northern Lights. For example, how the Aurora is formed, how you can successfully photograph it and how it’s perceived in different folklore. Consider visiting the Saga museum as well to learn about Vikings and snap a few photos in their traditional clothes and amour.
4. Hotel Ranga
Hotel Ranga is one of the most sought after honeymoon places in Iceland because of its location and beauty. It’s situated in an ideal spot to view the Northern lights during the colder months while offering easy access to the ring road, black sand beaches, Vik and Reynisfjara and the Skogafoss and Seljalandsfoss waterfalls.
While the Northern Lights draw thousands of hopeful sky-gazing tourists every year, Hotel Ranga gives you a better chance to view this magnificent phenomenon in a more secluded, private space. Nothing will light up your honeymoon quite like the stunning sights of the Aurora Borealis coupled with the seemingly endless natural wonders that surround you. It’s the experience of a lifetime!
Located in the Snaefellsnes peninsula in the western region of the country, Budir is an ideal destination for an Iceland honeymoon thanks to the abundance of interesting sites that surround it. While there, check out one of the most famous landmarks, the Budakirkja Church. Take road trips to the Golden Circle, Westfjords and Reykholt. The Golden Circle in particular is a must-see because of majestic attractions like the Gullfoss waterfall, Geysir, the UNESCO world heritage site and Thingvellir national park. You can also explore Snaefellsnes peninsula’s beaches and even ride the Icelandic horses along the beaches. As if that’s not enough, Budir offers a variety of amazing dining options.
