Berkeley Travel thrills All your senses. Bespoke itinerary to ICELAND

Flying over the barren, breathtaking landscapes of the vibrant lava plains on the Southeastern side of Iceland, it quickly becomes apparent as to why this happens to be a new hotspot amongst the travel industry. The Northern Lights is a natural phenomenon in northern latitudes, the result of collisions between electrically charged particles from the sun that enter the Earth’s atmosphere.

Aurora displays appear in many colors although pale green and pink are the most common with rarer shades of red, yellow, green, blue, and violet. The lights appear in many forms from patches or scattered clouds of light to streamers, arcs, rippling curtains or shooting rays that light up the sky with an eerie glow.

THE RETREAT AT BLUE LAGOON ICELAND

Lava Lagoon is sourced from the same volcanic aquifer of geothermal seawater as the Blue Lagoon and contains the same natural elements: silica, algae, and minerals. The lagoon’s open spaces, plateaus, waterfall, and lava corridors invite discovery, enable serenity, and provide shelter from the wind and storms that move across Iceland. Built into an 800-year-old lava flow on the south bank of the Blue Lagoon, Lava Cove is an extraordinary subterranean spa that unlocks the radiant powers of geothermal seawater. Where Lava Cove ends, the Blue Lagoon begins. The full spectrum of Blue Lagoon in-water treatments is just beyond the lava walls of Lava Cove. Exiting the spa, you enter a secluded expanse of the Blue Lagoon where in-water treatments—formulated from the treasures of geothermal seawater—are given.
