One of the most coveted perks at Travelzoo is the Travelzoo Experience, in which Deal Experts and other employees take advantage of the same travel, entertainment and local deals we publish to our subscribers and report back on their experience.
Last winter, my Travelzoo Experience in the land of fire and ice was also a mix of urban adventures and seemingly supernatural ones in the countryside. I was fortunate enough to catch the Northern Lights on my December trip to Iceland, and the thermospheric storms of the aurora borealis were as unbelievably bright and colorful as promised.
Not to be outdone, the Blue Lagoon -- a vast thermal pool about an hour away from the city -- also offered another other-worldly experience. Both stops on my long weekend away were incredibly worthwhile and very magical ways to take in the country.
