One experience to never miss in Iceland is an opportunity for pampering and relaxation at one of the country's geothermal spas. The Blue Lagoon is the logical choice for many travelers due to close proximity to the airport making it ideal for layovers. Additionally, it is serviced by many tours. However, I recommend venturing to other geothermal spas in more low key locations to truly unwind and relax with smaller crowds.

Here are a few ways I have learned to capture the essence of my destination to take a little piece back with me:

Great weekend full of events ahead! Please be aware if there is no snow on the ground, there will not be snowshoeing or other snow activities. Here are my picks this weekend:
Jolane's in Glenview is a great location for a family, home-cooked meal. We have celebrated a few family occasions there and find it to be a comfortable location if we want a meal with all the trimmings but not make it at home!
