Iceland Things to Do: 995 reviews and 2,331 photos


it's well known that icelanders like water and have lot's of spas and swimming pools.. but the blue lagoon is really something special... yet another of iceland's too-good-to-be-truth places...

the blue lagoon is a geothermal spa which consists of a big swimming pool filled with geothermal seawater, which consists of silica and blue green algae. there are also some steam baths and stuff like that, and lots of silica mud all over, which you put on your skin to make in cleaner and revitalises it. and it makes you look very funny with white mud stuck on your face :)) the water is pretty hard on your hair though, so it's recommended to put some conditioner on it before going to the water, so it won't get ruined.

you wonder why it's called the BLUE lagoon? well.... because it's very BLUE indeed :))

anyway, it's an very exiting experience to go there, i really recommend it...
