THE LOCAL´S FAVORIT
If you stay in the area until after the tour the perfect way to end the day is to visit the village thermal pool and experience Iceland’s healing energy at the same time. A healthy swim and a soak in the hot jacuzzi leaves you feeling in tune with body and soul. At the same time you´ll get a change to chat with the local´s from the village. They are usually willing to chat and are generous of sharing all the local´s secret places and good plans. Given these points, it is highly recommended!
