Grindavik

A historical fishing town on the scenic south coast of the Southern Peninsula, Grindavik boasts one main attraction, the Blue Lagoon, a geothermal spa.
Hallgrimskirkja and Einar Jonsson Museum (Listasafn Einars Jonssonar) are good opportunities to explore the local culture. Explore Grindavik's surroundings by going to Reykjavik (National Museum of Iceland, The Settlement Exhibition, & more). There's still lots to do: soothe aching muscles at some of the top local wellness centers.
