A colleague and I will be working in Reykjavik for one week, but have the weekend free to to touristy stuff (15-17. June). Everyone says the Blue Lagoon is a must, so we hope to go there on Friday afternoon. Is it far from Reykjavik? Are there buses going there, or do we need to go with a tour operator? How long will a stay there last?
I see one of the tour operators (Iceland Excursions, I think) offers a Golden Circle Evening Tour. Has anyone any experience with this tour? I was hoping to do some shopping (or window shopping at least) on Saturday, and then do the tour in the evening. Will it be worth it? The other alternative is to skip the shopping part, and do the day-tour instead. Which tour operator would you recommend?
