This place looks like heaven. It is the Blue Lagoon located in the Reykjanes peninsula in Iceland. It’s the world’s only point where a deep sea ridge is coming onto the shore. The Blue Lagoon is an amazing geothermal spa that attracts millions of tourists from all over the world.

 

The Blue Lagoon is located 13km (8 miles) from Keflavik Airport and 39km (24 miles) from Reykjavik.

The steamy waters are part of a lava formation. The water temperature averages 37-39 degrees C (98-102 F).

The water is used to run turbines that generate electricity. It goes through the turbine, passes through a heat exchanger and then is fed into the lagoon.

This resort offers geothermal steam bath, sauna, waterfall, relaxing and massage areas, bar, and other facilities.

The Blue Lagoon has two steam baths. One is a cave-like structure, built from lava rocks with benches and soft lighting that imitates an open fire. The other steam bath has white walls that resemble white silica mud and offers a view of the lagoon. The geothermal steam baths are around 45 degrees C (113 F).

The warm water and natural active ingredients of silica, salts, and blue green algae will help you relax.

White silica mud refreshes and softens your skin.

The Blue Lagoon helps some people to treat skin diseases such as psoriasis.
