Blue Lagoon Geothermal Spa, Iceland

Blue Lagoon Geothermal Spa in Iceland.

Iceland’s Blue Lagoon Georthermal Spa holds geothermal sea water heated to jacuzzi water temps (37-39°C / 98-102°F) beneath the ground.  The water, rich in silica and other minerals, is renewed every 40 hours.  At first blush I thought that the lagoon itself brought forth the geothermal water, but, but upon reading further, it appears that “the geothermal seawater is brought to the lagoon for people to enjoy bathing in it, and to the R&D centre where its actives are isolated for use in Blue Lagoon skin care.”

No matter.  If you’re fond of jacuzzis and mud packs, you’ll love this.

  2. Oh how I could jump into those waters. Friends went as it wasn’t that expensive of a trip last year when looking for a new experience. They said it was one of their top 10 experiences! They brought me the mud back for watching their fur babies. It is like gold. It feels great on your skin.
