Iceland Blue Lagoon – A Must-Visit Tourist Attraction

No trip to Iceland would be complete without a visit to the majestic Blue Lagoon Geothermal Spa.

The Blue Lagoon is one of the most popular and visited tourist spots in Iceland. With its crystal clear, milky blue water, the Blue Lagoon offers a mesmerising view to visitors. But, there’s more to it than just its spectacular outward appearance. Read on to find out:

Formed in 1976, the Blue Lagoon is a manmade lagoon that came into existence because of drilling in the power plant, Svartsengi.

Svartsengi was drilled to produce electricity and hot water for nearby communities. The Blue Lagoon offers a complete spa experience. Similar to other spas across the world, you will find saunas, showers, lockers and more.

Although the water looks blue, it’s actually milky white in colour. Sunlight gives it a blue appearance. In addition, the water comprises minerals, silica and algae. Bathing in the water is known to improve one’s skin.

Average water temperature is between 37-40°C every year. Here are some tips to help you make the most of your Blue Lagoon experience:

Book ahead

The Blue Lagoon is packed with travellers all year around. So, you must make bookings in advance. There are plenty of tour packages available, so pick the one that suits your needs.

Shower before getting into the water

You will have to take a shower before getting in the water. This is mainly for hygiene reasons. Another important tip is to slather the white algae mask on your face and let it dry for a while.

White mask is a deep cleansing and purifying mask and will give your face a radiant glow.

Protect your hair

If you don’t cover your hair in the lagoon, it will get dry. So, put on a plastic cap over your head.

Have fun

Most importantly, relax and enjoy the unique spa experience that you won’t find anywhere else in the world. Have a drink or a healthy smoothie and just embrace the serene experience for complete rejuvenation.
