Aries, you are a fire element who loves leading the way for others and adventure. Going to a place off the beaten path with lots of invigorating sights and cultures is the spot for you. Who cares about a relaxing beach vacation in Miami? Take a trip to the Westman Islands. The tiny volcanic islands are off the coast of mainland Iceland, and you can reach them by ferry. Go see the Eldfell Volcano, which is still steaming from its last eruption in 1973! Maybe you’ll get lucky and see a puffin!
Taurus, you are an Earth sign who is very in touch with nature who likes to stray from the crowd. The perfect Icelandic getaway for you is to visit the Reykjanes Peninsula. Near Keflavík’s international airport, most visitors don’t give Reykjanes a second glance as they make their way to Reykjavík although the peninsula has plenty to offer. It is close to the Blue Lagoon, Iceland’s most famous spa and thermal bath, and trans-continental bridge near Hafnir that symbolizes the connection from Europe to North America. The bridge is a small footbridge over a major fissure (gaps that form from stresses building up from the Earth’s tectonic plates moving). You can even take home a certificate saying you’ve crossed two continents!
Gemini, you live a unique and sometimes mysterious life. Variety spices up your life, so a perfect de-stress spot is to explore an old Viking fortress! Borgarvirki is an old and very rocky Viking fortress located in North West Iceland and is one of Iceland’s most notable historic sites. Legend says that was used as a defense fortress when people of the area were being attacked in the 13th century. Check out this historic and scenic ruin!
Cancer, you are a water sign who appreciates the things in life that are serene and harmonious, so the famous Strokkur Geyser in Iceland is the spot for you. Strokkur is located along the Hvítá River in the southwest part of Iceland, east of Reykjavík. It is one of Iceland’s most famous and powerful geysers, erupting once every 6–10 minutes with boiling water. The Geyser’s hot spring water explosion is on average 50-65 feet high. This is truly a spectacular phenomenon that does not exist frequently outside of Iceland.
Leo, you are a leader and an adventurer, so go check out Gjáin, or “the ravine”, for a hike. This breathtaking wonderland looks like a scene from a fairytale, full of picturesque waterfalls and small rivers. In the lush vegetation on this beautiful piece of land you can find angelica in abundance, an important anti-aging ingredient in many of skyn ICELAND’s formulas, such as the Angelica Line Smoother Pen. Hikers can also spot gorgeous lava structures and lava caves in Gjáin.
Virgo, you are an Earth sign whose personality is very genuine. The perfect spot to kick back and take in the sights is at the Háifoss waterfall, or the Tall Falls. The 400 foot tall waterfall is breathtaking, and its natural beauty is thanks to the cascading glacial river Þjórsá. Be sure to try some of our products made with potent glacial water, like the glacial face wash!
Libra, you have a well-developed and innate sense of what is aesthetically beautiful. You have an attraction to beautiful sights and have great taste. A stress-free Icelandic getaway for you has to include visiting the Seljalandsfoss waterfall. The waterfall is one of the most famous in Iceland, and on a sunny day you could catch a rainbow above the falls. In the summer it is possible to walk a path behind the cascading falls, so bring a rain coat!
Scorpio, you are a water sign, and are often to be found wise beyond your years. The perfect Icelandic getaway for you is to go snorkeling or diving at Silfra, where you can dive between the tectonic boundary between the North American and Eurasian tectonic plates. Silfra, located in the Þingvellir National Park, is probably one of the coldest places to dive, (usually 35-39 degrees Fahrenheit all year) but also has been tagged the clearest water on Earth. Where else can you say you dove into a fissure between two continents?
Sagittarians are known for aiming their sights towards whatever it is they find alluring – a love partner, dream job, vacation – and making it their own. Sagittarians are happiest on the move – exploring new cultures and ideas and many are attracted to occupations related to travel and outdoor work. Your ideal Iceland getaway is to visit Bruarfoss, or “blue waterfall”. Bruarfoss is considered one of Iceland’s hidden gems. This graceful waterfall is off the beaten path, so normally it will not be crowded with tourists and you will have plenty of space to explore. The waterfall is formed from the river Brúará, and its electric blue waters are a must-see.
Capricorn, although conservative and cautious, you are willing to try unusual approaches on their road to success in business, love, or travel. Instead of following the tourist masses to the famous Blue Lagoon, visit the Myvatin Nature Baths. Located in the Northern Region of Iceland, Myvatin is a breathtaking hot spring that is quieter and less crowded than the Blue Lagoon. Here you can relax, enjoy, and experience a natural hot spring without the over crowdedness of a tourist hotspot. While you are in Myvatin, check out the Hverfjall crater. The round crater has paths to access from the North and South, and the views from the inner rim are breaktaking.
Taurus, you are an Earth sign who is very in touch with nature, and who likes to stray from the crowd. The perfect Icelandic getaway for you is to visit the Reykjanes Peninsula. Near Keflavík’s international airport, most visitors don’t give Reykjanes a second glance as they make their way to Reykjavík although the peninsula has plenty to offer. It is close to the Blue Lagoon, Iceland’s most famous spa and thermal bath, and trans-continental bridge near Hafnir that symbolizes the connection from Europe to North America. The bridge is a small footbridge over a major fissure (gaps that form from stresses building up from the Earth’s tectonic plates moving). You can even take home a certificate saying you’ve crossed two continents!
Aquarians, you desire to be unique and original by all means. The Vatnsnes Peninsula in Iceland is the perfect travel spot for you. Although Iceland’s tourism industry is booming, this peninsula is still essentially untouched by tourists. It is one of the least instagrammed places in the world, and wild horses outnumber the local population. The largest seal colonies in Iceland can be found along the black sand beaches, and a basalt rock formation is a vision in the middle of the icy water.
Pisces, you desire to live out all of your wildest dreams and turn fantasies into realities. In Iceland, your ideal destination is to stay at the Buubble Hotel where you can take your shot at seeing the northern lights! The Buubble Hotel is located about 70 minutes from the capital, and is located in a forest. Also known as the “5 Million Star Hotel”, you can live your childhood dream of laying under the night stars, and if your timing is right, see the natural wonder of aurora borealis in person!
