Take a dip in the world’s favourite volcanic spa and soak the stress away. The Blue Lagoon is so unique, it's a 'must do in Iceland'.
Blue Lagoon water contains a unique cocktail of natural mineral ingredients like silica, mineral salts and blue-green algae which help you relax and unwind while the Blue Lagoon white silica mud gently cleanses and exfoliates your skin.
The Blue Lagoon spa in southwest Iceland is conveniently built right by Keflavik International Airport because it’s a seriously nice place to wind down after a flight, or to chill out before flying home. But no! The Blue Lagoon’s location is actually an accident.
You see, in the 70s when the local geothermal power station opened, harnessing nature’s volcanic heat, people didn’t realise the run-off water would be thick with mud and start blocking up the porous local rock. But sure enough, it soon started forming a warm, bright blue ‘lagoon’. Before long people even started bathing in it and smothering the silky mud on themselves. They did it because it felt good. Later on, scientists proved that the water and mud actually are good for the skin. Very good, in fact. People started seeking the lagoon out for relief from skin ailments like eczema and psoriasis, and the reputation slowly grew.
It’s from these humble and unexpected beginnings that today’s luxurious Blue Lagoon spa complex sprang – and now it is one of the most celebrated spas in the world!
