The Blue Lagoon Geothermal Spa is one of the most beautiful in the world. It is located in the Reykjavik Peninsula in the lava field of Grindavik and is nearly 800 years old. Situated approximately 50 minutes away from Iceland’s capital, it is at the perfect distance to be away from the bustle of the city, while still being easily accessible. It was named amongst the “25 Wonders of the World” by National Geographic. The special properties of its waters are renowned. Additionally, its skin care ingredients, which include the silica mud and algae mask. The water is rich in several minerals, such as silica and sulfur. It is also believed that those who have psoriasis can be cured by swimming in these waters. A research and development center has been facilitated to help find cures to other ailments.
The lagoon, however, is not natural. It is heated by the closely located Svartsengi geothermal plant and is renewed every two days. This ensures that all the minerals continue to remain in their perfect concentrations, while also guaranteeing that the water is fresh. The heating occurs from a lava flow, which produces electricity by running turbines. The hot air, on passing through the turbines passes through a heat exchanger and is then fed to the lagoon.
You can book your experience during any hour of the day. Once you reach the lagoon, you can enjoy a drink of your choice at the bar located nearby. After your relaxing Blue Lagoon experience, you will be dropped back to Reykjavik or the Keflavik International Airport. Don’t forget to check the Blue Lagoon Schedule, to find out what time you can return. The drop off follows a predetermined route.
