An Evening of Northern Lights at Laugarvatn Fontana
The Northern lights are as unique and inspiring as Iceland itself: They appear softly, perhaps as undulating streaks of teal, mint green or pure white, or maybe great, leaping bands of violet and magenta splashed across the starry night sky. Either way, they are an unforgettable experience. Other cultures believe they are dancing spirits, reflections of a phantom fire, omens of war, or even the playful bounding of a great Arctic fox, whose fur strikes the sizzling sparks you see as he touches the mountains.
But of course there is more! Take in this shocking, stirring display from the comfort of the geothermal baths at Laugarvatn Fontana, a favorite retreat in Iceland since 1929. Laugarvatn Fontana is designed to offer the luxury and convenience of its various steam rooms, mineral baths and Fininsh-style sauna, while never distracting you from the natural beauty of its surrounding environment.
Soothe your spirit and nourish your body at Fontana. Try goodies from the buffet which celebrate uniquely Icelandic cuisine: a whole meal, or just a taste. Choices can include the soup of the day, trout fished from the nearby lake Laugarvatn, rye bread baked in the hot sands of the lava plains (a traditional method) or homemade cream cakes, along with a wide array of cold and hot beverages to please your palette.
Once you've had your fill of sensory delights at the baths, you'll also be taken on a short tour of the countryside to make sure you didn't miss a single bright light amidst the raw, yet captivating, landscape.
