Blue Lagoon Iceland is the geothermal spa everybody is been talking about. Some people love it, others feel that their expectations were not fully met. Either way, the spot is still one of the top tourist attractions in the country. The steamy water is a part of a lava formation and the water is rich in minerals like silica. If you fancy the ultimate Icelandic experience, why not indulge yourself and have a floating massage in the Blue Lagoon?
According to the National Geographic, the Blue Lagoon Iceland is among the wonders of the world as it was one of 25 locations around the globe to receive that honour in the magazine’s special edition on wonders of the world.
Amazingly, the Blue Lagoon Iceland was formed from a natural accident. Nature has its own way, and today it has been documented that bathing in the Blue Lagoon can help people who are suffering from skin diseases such as psoriasis.
TIP: We do recommend putting hair conditioning in your hair before entering the Blue Lagoon and, if you have long hair, to tie it back as the lagoon can dry your hair.
The Blue Lagoon is open all year around. See opening hours.

Few years back, The Icelandic Opera had a surprise event in the Blue Lagoon. I guess we can call it a ‘flash mob’ with fewer performers than usual, but it was a beautiful experience for the visitors of the Blue Lagoon.
