iceland: day 5 - hallgrimskirkja and blue lagoon



For our last full day in Iceland, we decided to slow down and rest. We went to see the Hallgrimskirkja which is this massive church in the city of Reykjavik. It's a Lutheran church completed in 1986 and it houses a large pipe organ. We didn't have much time though, so we didn't go up the observatory tower.

In front of it, is the statue of explorer Leif Erikson who was a Norse explorer from Iceland. He was the first known European to have set foot on continental North America (excluding Greenland), before Christopher Columbus.


We didn't want to miss our entrance schedule for The Blue Lagoon, so we hit the road early from Hallgrimskirkja. It was our last day and all we wanted to do was relax. We prepaid for our entrance and we got the Comfort package for PHP 4,900 (USD 94 or EUR 84) in October. It includes the entrance to the Blue Lagoon, Silica mud mask, use of towel (of course you can bring your own towel), and the first drink of your choice. I went for the Icelandic yogurt Skyr for the last time of course!


The Blue Lagoon is the perfect ending to a one heck of an adventure! Iceland has definitely ruined all future travels for us! 😝
