The gloriously enchanting Blue Lagoon is on most traveller’s lists of must-sees in Iceland. It’s recently been enlarged to accommodate the ever increasing number of guests, a succesful and very natural addition to this milky, aquamarine coloured lake. Although there are plenty of natural hot springs in Iceland, the Blue Lagoon is actually a result of the nearby geothermal plant and was formed in 1976. In the eighties and early nineties people bathed in its unique waters, milky with silica mud, and those with skin conditions and exzema noticed great improvement to their skin. In those times, the changing rooms were a mere shack by the edge of the water but now, The Blue Lagoon is without a doubt the most sophisticated spa experience you will find in Iceland, or for that matter, on an international scale.
If you have time, you really should complete your Blue Lagoon experience by eating at the fabulous Lava restaurant which has a great team of chefs that have experience from Michelin star restaurants in New York, London and Paris. And all this with that unique new Icelandic twist – lots of lamb, fish, shellfish and seasonal Icelandic ingredients. Believe us, you’ll be ravenous after your swim in the lagoon and a wonderful four-course culinary adventure will put the final touch to your day before heading back. Book a table HERE.
This small and charming waterfall is situated near the impressive mount Kirkjufell, at Grundarfjordur, on the Snaefellsnes peninsula. For photographing, it is particularly scenic when you capture the fall, the clearness of the water and the mountain in the background, best experienced in the light of the midnight sun in midsummer.
