Immerse yourself in Icelandic culture

6th December 2002 at 00:00
Did you know that the Icelandic lagoon featured in the latest Bond movie, Die Another Day, had to be specially dammed to make the ice freeze hard enough for the filming of the "ice ballet" car chase?

The Jokulsarlon lagoon, surrounded by towering glaciers, and Skaftafell, another of the film's locations, are highlights of Arctic Experience's four-night 007 fly-drive break in Iceland. To set the sybaritic Bond mood, the holiday begins with a stress-busting visit to the Blue Lagoon for a head, neck and shoulders massage and a Lagoon Cocktail (shaken, not stirred, of course), before trips to three of Iceland's spectacular falls - Gullfoss, Skogarfoss and Seljalandsfoss - and the volcanic spring at Geysir. Prices start from pound;538 per person, based on two sharing, or pound;680 for singles, and include return flights from Glasgow or Heathrow to Reykjavik, departing after December 31 until March , three days' car rental, four nights' hotel accommodation with breakfast, and massage, cocktail and entry to the Blue Lagoon.
