Icelandic Layover

Way way waaaay up north, past the unknown territories of Canada, through the icebergs of the Arctic Circle, lies the volcanic land, the original home of the Vikings, thought to be covered in ice: Icelandia

Icelandic Air offers its passengers a chance to break free from the airport during a layover and explore their beautiful country. We allotted 10 hours to basically soak in water after flying for ten hours with four more to go. A ten-hour layover is NOT enough time to explore the beauty of Iceland, but it is enough time to spend lounging in the Blue Lagoon.

Despite being an international hotspot for layovers, the airport of Iceland is rather small and easy to maneuver. Follow the crispy air away from the tarmac towards the buses. You’ll find one labeled “Blue Lagoon” buy a ticket, hop on board, and off you go. After only a 30-minute bus ride), you will find yourself deep within this active volcano, a land hidden by rocks covered in soft green moss and tiny splotches of bright purple flowers. Shadowed by some industrial man-made poisonous cloud making machines, lies the infamous: Blue Lagoon.

10 hours well spent.
