Blue Lagoon

Our final stop in Iceland was the Blue Lagoon. This geothermal spa is one of the most visited attractions in Iceland and it is conveniently located about 20 minutes from the Keflavik International Airport. Our plan was to spend the morning and early afternoon at the Blue Lagoon and then be thoroughly relaxed throughout our flight home. It was a really good plan. I only wish that we had more time to spend there. It was absolute heaven!

The Blue Lagoon is located in a lava field in Grindavik and the warm water is rich in minerals that are supposed to do wonders for your skin. I must say, my skin did feel fabulous! The water is a milky blue color and it leaves a white ceramic-like finish on the surrounding lava rock. If you look closely at the pictures below, you can see the white residue on the lava rock near the water line.

Rob is not much of a “spa” guy, but he pretended to enjoy it as much as I did. He even joined me in applying an algae moisturizing facial mask!

We lounged in the water for a couple of hours and then we enjoyed a delicious lunch at the Lava Restaurant. After lunch there wasn’t enough time to get back into the water. We had just enough time to shower and then we had to be on our way to the airport. : (

Until next time Iceland…

    • I highly recommend it! It is very close to the airport, so even if you just get an extended layover in Iceland, you could easily hit up the Blue Lagoon.
