Iceland’s Blue Lagoon spa, situated in the lava fields of the Reykjanes Peninsula, is one of the country’s most visited attractions. The blue frosty coloured lagoon, as well as being famous for its breathtaking scenery, is also world renowned for the LAVA Restaurant, which is also built into the lava surroundings.
The LAVA Restaurant offers a delicious a la carte menu as well as a great selection for kids, making it ideal for all the family to enjoy whilst admiring the beautiful surroundings. The elegant restaurant also offers a 3 course lunch time buffet menu that allows guests to have an ‘Icelandic tasting experience’. The buffet menu includes such delicacies as Icelandic meat soup, Icelandic flatbread with smoked lamb and minke whale with pepper gravy.
The interior of the Blue Lagoon restaurant consists of a natural lava wall surrounding the restaurant, creating a unique feel and atmosphere. A glass staircase inside the restaurant leads guests to a bar and lounge area on the second floor where they can enjoy pre-dinner drinks in a relaxing environment. Additionally, the roof of the restaurant accommodates a viewing platform with a perfect view of the lagoon and the surrounding area.
To experience this and much more, Icelandair is currently offering Reykjavik city break package deals with a free day tour to the amazing Blue Lagoon geothermal spa included. Icelandair’s city break offer includes return economy class flights from either London, Manchester or Glasgow, as well as 3 nights accommodation, Blue Lagoon transfer and entrance fee, plus breakfast at selected hotels.
