We will be visiting Reykjavik in early February and staying in the city, but we will have a car and have 2nights that we don't have a place to stay, so we plan to travel somewhere else. Are there areas within decent driving distance where the northern lights can usually be seen?

I would rather relax in the Blue Lagoon and have lunch there...It was too cold for me!

I'd say blue lagoon more relaxing, even if weathers cold it's warm there... be prepared to do some walking around the Golden Circle though 👍

Totally agree, I would choose Golden Circle and then a local swimming pool. My favorite is Salalaug in Kopavogur, next to Reykjavik, but here are a lot of swimming pools and most of them are very good, with hot tubs and some also with cold. Exchanging hot and cold is very good for tired muscles and suits all ages.

It depends what you want to experience. I'd recommend the Golden Circle over the Blue Lagoon any day. You'd see geysers, Gullfoss waterfall and Thingvellir national park - which are all stunning locations. It doesn't require too much walking. Blue Lagoon is first and foremost a spa - a very expensive one. It's, without a doubt, a lovely place and I'm sure either choice will be a good one for you.

My recommendation: Go to a local swimming pool in Reykjavik (such as Vesturbæjarlaug) after a good trip to the Golden Circle.
