Iceland Blue Lagoon
The Blue Lagoon is a geothermal spa in south western Iceland. The water is good for the skin where it has silica and sulphur that is good for the skin from suffering skin diseases like psoriasis.
The spa is located in a lava field near Grindavík on the Reykjanes Peninsula, in a location favorable for geothermal power, and is supplied by water used in the nearby Svartsengi geothermal power station.
What makes the lagoon so amazing is its warm temperature that rises from 37°C to 39 °C. The lagoon itself is warm due to nearby geothermal power plant Svartsengi which is the largest in the world.
The blue lagoon is quite distance where you have to rent a tourist car which is available in the city. The Blue Lagoon is accessible by car or by bus from Reykjavik where it takes 35 to 4o minutes of travel time along Keflavik airport, there take a tourist car going to blue lagoon.
The Blue Lagoon has a sauna and steam room, as well as an exclusive section. You can get a variety of spa treatments, including a massage on a float right in the Blue Lagoon!
Mineral-rich hot water from far beneath the earth forms the spectacular lagoon, where the lagoon’s geothermal seawater is known for its positive effects on the skin.
Today, the blue lagoon itself operated by private sector that makes blown spa with a hotel, a restaurant and banquet facilities. Its main draw is still the lagoon and the mineral rich water that is good for the body skin.
What makes the view so spectacular is the volcano’s lava is gorgeous with walls made out of rock and atmosphere lighting that really emphasizes the dramatic effect of the rock in the architecture.
Again, I have a couple of question to you before going there. Do you want to feel the presence of nature along your vacation? Do you like soaking in warm water outside? Well, if that’s a case blue lagoon is perfect for you!
A short trivia, in 1992, the Blue Lagoon Company was established, and the bathing facility was opened for the public where it was been originated a pool formed at the site from the geothermal power plant waste in 1976.
