Although you might be tempted to sit yourselves in the Blue Lagoon and bask like seals for the remainder of the weekend, the stunning Icelandic landscape puts up a good argument for leaving the spa and venturing out in to the snow. With GoHen's array of Reykjavik hen ideas, we've got activities to suit all groups from the incredibly intense to the spectacularly serene. Or you could just soak in the Blue Lagoon after all there's no shame in spending the weekend taking in the waters at one of the most beautiful geothermal spas in the world.
Reykjavik is a pretty city, sure, but the surrounding area is frankly nothing short of phenomenal. If you want to get out of the city and see some of the most striking landscape in the world, we've got a range of Reykjavik hen activities that will let you do just that as well as end up with some pretty cool photos for the Facebook album. Snowmobiling takes you out to some of the most amazing glaciers in Iceland, in search of the best views in the country. You'll see (and snowmobile over) massive glaciers, volcanic craters, and black sand beaches, seeing all of Iceland's most impressive scenery in one unforgettable ride. If you'd rather see the local fauna than flora, whale watching might be the better choice for you and the girls. There are Minke, Humpback, Fin and Sei whales to be spied, as well as dolphins, porpoises, and a lot of sea birds too, all in their natural habitat. All we've ever seen in Britain's seas is seaweed and the occasional seagull. To see all of Iceland's most striking and incredible natural wonders, though, it has to be the Golden Circle tour. This 10 hour trip will take you to one of Iceland's biggest waterfalls, explosive hot springs, dormant volcanoes, and towering glaciers as well as to a literal rift between continents, one of the only two places in the world you can see continental plates drifting apart.
If seeing the world from the back of a tour bus (or snowmobile) isn't your thing, and you'd rather put the girls through their paces and get up close and personal with Iceland, there are Reykjavik hen activities that will leave you breathless for more than one reason. The girls might not initially thank you for hauling them across the ice on a glacier hike, but the phenomenal views are well worth all the whining they'll do initially on a clear day you'll be able to see as far as Greenland from the top. If even that's just not challenging enough for you, try a hiking up an active volcano instead it's the second most active in Iceland, and has erupted as recently as 2000. It was known as the ‘Gateway to Hell' in the Middle Ages for a reason but it's also one of the most rewarding hen do activities imaginable. Alternatively, give your legs a rest (kind of) and try snorkelling instead taking the plunge in Iceland's largest lake has not only crystal clear waters and a variety of wildlife to see, but also a gap that marks the edges of America and Europe, allowing you to swim between two different continents at once.
We can go on all we like about the staggering sights and scenery in Iceland, but a visit to the Blue Lagoon is always going to be the most popular Reykjavik hen idea around and with good reason. It's the most popular tourist site in Iceland, and it's listed again and again as one of the best geothermal spas in the world, with clear-blue mineral rich naturally heated waters providing a heavenly and irresistible temptation to hens looking to relax and rejuvenate on their hen weekend as well as soak those aching muscles after all the hiking and snowmobiling. There are mud baths and massages and treatments to enjoy, as well as it being a top place to catch up and gossip with the girls, but don't kid yourselves once you step in to the hot waters, all you're going to want to do is lie back and float in sheer bliss.
