For a one-day stopover, we recommend taking a day trip through the southwest of Iceland to sample the best relaxation options on offer.
Start at the Blue Lagoon en route from the airport to Reykjavik and spend your first few hours in Iceland soaking in the milky blue water. Then head to Reykjavik for a refreshing cup of coffee downtown before plunging your feet into the Grótta footbath with a breath-taking view over the Faxafloi bay and neighboring mountains.
When your feet are refreshed, go for a cocktail and a lovely meal at Slippbarinn, the bar at Icelandair Hotel Reykjavík Marina. Before you head to the airport again, make a stop at Sóley Natura Spa for a relaxing massage before your flight.
