Relax in this wonderful man made lagoon

The Blue Lagoon is probably Iceland’s most famous attraction and has become considered a must-see for all visitors to the country. It is located in the Svartsengi lava field of Grindavík, between the Keflavík International Airport and Reykjavík.

The lagoon was first formed in 1976 as a wastewater pool from the neighbouring geothermal power plant, and a couple years later people began bathing in it upon hearing rumours that the mineralrich waters that are the byproduct of geothermal energy are soothing for a range of skin conditions. It was not long before the Blue Lagoon was formally established, and today it offers showers and changing facilities, a spa, exclusive lounge, and café for guests.

The pool’s milky blue colour is incredible to see against the stark black lava landscape, and a soak in the waters will leave you utterly relaxed and the silica-rich waters will leave your skin silky smooth.

Advance reservations are required to visit the Blue Lagoon, so please contact your Travel Consultant if you are interested in experiencing the pool for yourself.
