The Retreat at Blue Lagoon Iceland

Nearly every person who travels to Iceland makes time for a soak in the world-famous Blue Lagoon, a naturally forming geothermal pool surrounded by 800-year-old lava fields.

Hiking

Napa and Sonoma Counties offer more than just vineyards. Actually, they are both packed with wilderness as the unique topography gives way to foggy forests, petrified trees and crazy rock formations. Bothe-Napa Valley State Park and Sugarloaf State Park are both great places for exploring the backwoods.

Biking

The biking options in wine country are plentiful and highly recommended. Check out Napa Valley Bike Tours for rental information and suggested routes. No matter if you’re a biking enthusiast or just a casual biker, there’s an itinerary available for you.
