Blue Lagoon

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.
