Things to do in Blue Lagoon
The Blue Lagoon is a geothermal spa in Iceland, located in a lava field near Grindavík on the Reykjanes Peninsula, in a location favourable for geothermal power. Situated just 20 minutes by car from Keflavík International Airport and 50 minutes from Reykjavík, the Blue Lagoon is one of the most visited attractions in Iceland, drawing people from all over the world.
The lagoon is supplied by water used in the nearby Svartsengi geothermal power station. The water’s iconic colour is a result of the way that silica reflects sunlight, with the properties of the water being 70% ocean water and 30% freshwater. The water temperature of the bathing and swimming area averages 37-39 degrees Celsius making it the perfect trip to enjoy at any time of the year, regardless of the season.
The Blue Lagoon is considered to have regenerative qualities due to the water’s rich silica and sulphur content. Silica mud is available for free on the sides of the pool for guests to enjoy as a face mask.
A must-see for anyone visiting Iceland, the lagoon is surrounded by beautiful volcanic scenery with the vivid blue water providing an amazing contrast to its surroundings. Rising steam from the warm water adds to the spa’s fantastic ambience. At the lagoon you will also find a restaurant, café and the Lagoon Spa, making it the perfect place to enjoy a relaxing day out!
