Grindavík, Iceland

Ice blue and steamy warm, the Blue Lagoon, located just 24 miles outside of capital city Reykjavik, is one of Iceland’s most popular attractions. Its crystal waters, part of a lava formation, hover between 98 and 102 degrees year-round, and they’re rich in minerals such as sulfur and silica, leading some travelers to believe they have medicinal qualities. After taking a dip in the pool, splurge on a treatment at the on-site Blue Lagoon Spa. Products are infused with the lagoon’s finest -- geothermal seawater, algae and minerals.
