Set amongst a bleak landscape of lava-blackened rocks, the brilliantly turquoise waters of the Blue Lagoon are Iceland’s premier geothermal attraction. Bubbling at a pleasant 38 degrees Celsius, the waters of the Blue Lagoon are an ideal temperature even in the depths of winter when wet hair can freeze solid in a matter of minutes. Icelanders claim the water has rejuvenating qualities while the silt that forms at the bottom of the pool can be bought in the gift shop as beauty treatments. Whatever its medicinal benefits, a trip to the Blue Lagoon is one of Iceland’s most unforgettable experiences.
Iceland is a country packed with magical attractions but none are as mesmerizing as taking a swim in the turquoise waters of the Blue Lagoon. Located near Reykjavik, taking a dip in the thermal pools is the perfect way to end an awe-inspiring tour of the Golden Circle.
The blackened lava field of the Reykjanes Peninsula that surrounds the Blue Lagoon is one of Iceland’s most eerie landscapes. To explore this strange lunar land, guided tours allow you to cave inside a lava tube, witness the moment where the bubbling North Atlantic fault line emerges from the ocean, and visit boiling geothermal pools.
