Iceland’s Luxury Geothermal Playground: The Blue Lagoon

The Blue Lagoon is one of Iceland's top destinations with more than 400,000 visitors annually. With a bathing area that is 5000 meters squared, this massive hot tub can hold up to six million liters of geothermal brine - all of which is renewed in 40 hours.   Blue Lagoon's guests actually bathe between two continents as the Eurasian and North American tectonic plates meet.

The geothermal spa is a place where guests renew their relationship with nature, soak up the scenic beauty and enjoy breathing the clean, fresh air while relaxing in the warm geothermal seawater.  Conde Nast Traveller voted Blue Lagoon the best medical spa worldwide and for five consecutive years it has been awarded the Blue Flag environmental recognition granted to natural beaches and marinas.

Since the first public bathing facilities opened in 1987, the lagoon has bloomed to include a clinic for psoriasis patients, a hotel, a bar and restaurant, a conference center, and a spa with its own high-end skincare products.
