Another fabulous day excursion from Reykjavik is the Circle of Fire tour offered by several tour companies; on this one you will be picked up from your Iceland hotel in Reykjavik and taken to see lakes, volcanoes, geothermal fields and some of the most dramatic waterfalls you can imagine.  You just have to make time to visit the famous Blue Lagoon thermal lake near Reykjavik  to relax in the mineral-rich waters; at Blue Lagoon your choices of where to stay in Iceland vary from the best hotels in Iceland including luxury 4 star hotels such as Icelandair Hotel and Hotel Keflavik (4 star) to cheap hotels in Iceland as well as guesthouses, apartments, resorts or bed and breakfast in Iceland.
