Blue Lagoon Geothermal Spa

Grindavik, Iceland

The legendary Blue Lagoon geothermal spa is one of the most visited attractions in Iceland. Less than an hour’s drive from Reykjavik, this sapphire-colored sanctuary is located within a lava field and gets its remarkable color from the geothermal water’s unique composition of silica, algae and minerals. Maintaining a sumptuous temperature of about 100 degrees year-round, the lagoon makes for the ultimate winter destination, where decadent massage treatments, silica mud baths and stargazing are all on the delightful menu.
