In every relationship, there comes a time where you need a REAL escape. You need something so big and out of the ordinary that you are spurred to remember why exactly you are together. Never fear. Iceland is here to rescue you! Invest in some time in Iceland and rediscover yourselves! Sometimes all it takes is getting back to the basics. It’s Iceland. No one looks glamorous when they’re trying to keep warm. However, spending time in unspoiled country with amazing views of water, fjiords and mountains – not to mention an occasional glimpse of the northern lights – can do wonders for any couple.
City Adventures – If your idea of roughing it is not roughing it, stay in Reykjavik. It’s Iceland’s largest city and you’ll find the luxuries you’re accustomed to in a laid back atmosphere. You can explore the wilderness during the day and return to excellent food, warm bedding and a staff who will call you during the night if the northern lights appear (but, only if you want.) Visit the nearby, therapeutic Blue Lagoon while you visit. For the ultimately hip adventure, check out the 101 Hotel. Food, art, views and a spa will have you back to your real selves in no time.
Mildly Adventurous – Just about an hour outside of Reykjavik, the Ion Hotel offers luxury and hipness along with a jump-off point for your daily adventures. From your base, you can explore Iceland’s famous Golden Circle. The first point of the triangle is Pingvallir – the site of Iceland’s original parliament. Next on the list is Geysir, a natural, spouting hot spring and finally, the triangle is completed by the waterfall at Gullfoss. You can manage to see all three sites in one day or spread it out over your visit.
Ready for Anything – Okay, a stay at the Hotel Ranga is not a hardship. In fact, it’s a pretty spectacular place to find yourself. Still, the chance to explore southern Iceland by jeep during the day and return to abolute luxury each night is the best of both worlds, right? Explore nature reserves, glaciers, the northern lights, waterfalls and more from this astounding base.
It might be tiny but Iceland packs a powerful punch. Re-connect while exploring this once mysterious island. You won’t regret it.
