The Blue Lagoon is one of the most popular tourist attractions in Iceland. The blue geothermal waters and the lava field create a surreal and alien landscape, which is beautiful and serene as well. Make sure you pay the Blue Lagoon a visit while in Iceland. 

We recommend that you stop by the Blue Lagoon and spend some time in the beautiful blue waters of the lagoon. It is almost impossible to describe the feeling, bathing in the middle of a forlorn lava field in milky blue waters sure sounds like something you’d only see in movies. But the Blue Lagoon is located just outside Reykjavik and mere 15 kilometers (approx. 10 miles) from Keflavik International Airport.

If the experience itself wasn’t enough, the waters do have therapeutic effect on your skin, since the water is super rich in minerals like silica, chloride, and calcium. There’s also a tint of sulfur in it which you can smell the moment you get there. But don’t worry, it’s not dangerous in any way, though we do recommend that you remove your rings, necklaces, and bracelets before entering the blue pool.

Amenities also include an Exclusive Changing Lounge, snack shop, boutique, conference facilities and LAVA Restaurant, built into an 800 year old lava cliff, serving fresh Icelandic ingredients prepared by inspired chefs hand-picked from the national culinary team. The Blue Lagoon Bar also serves drinks while you are in the blue waters. We recommend that you make the most of your visit, it is more than worth it.
