The seventh and final day of our Icelandic adventure. After spending the morning exploring Reykjavik, we had to take in arguably the most popular attraction in Iceland before heading home.
After a restful night sleep in our cozy, Castle Luxury Apartment, we were ready for our final day of adventuring. As breakfast at restaurants isn’t really a thing in Iceland, we walked to one of the few restaurants serving, the Laundromat Cafe. On the walk we passed by lovely (Lake) Tjornin.
The Laundromat Cafe had a fun and colorful vibe, with tons of pictures of … you guessed it … laundromats on the wall. There was also a *surprise* laundromat in the basement. Despite the eclectic atmosphere, the menu offered pretty standard breakfast fare and we had no problem filling our bellies.
Since we had some time before our reservation at the Blue Lagoon, we spent the rest of the morning walking around, the very walkable, Reykjavik. We also may or may not have had to retrace our steps from the night before. (We spent a good several hours chatting with the bartenders at Kaldi). 🙂
Reykjavik is filled with colorful buildings that are fun to look at – part of the reason it’s a great city to walk around.
Because the Blue Lagoon is so popular, it is recommended that you reserve an entrance time by purchasing tickets ahead of time to make sure that you’re able to visit. So, we made a reservation for noon to allow a couple of hours to enjoy the Lagoon before heading home.
Once you check in, you receive a futuristic-looking wristband that gets you in locks/unlocks your locker and can be used to purchase drinks. There were quite a few people, but the Lagoon is HUGE, so we were still able to find a less crowded area.
After getting our fill of the Lagoon, we drove the 20 minutes to the Keflavik airport, turned in our car and checked into our flight before enjoying one last Icelandic meal at Nord Restaurant.
Al had a super yummy looking langoustine pizza.
While I enjoyed a deliciously fresh beet salad and a bowl of Icelandic lamb soup before boarding our flight and flying home to MSP!
… and we got to see Greenland on the way home. 🙂
