The Blue Lagoon

The Blue Lagoon geothermal spa is the ultimate way to treat body and soul. Relax in the 37 degree geothermal seawater in a fascinating steamy environment.

The Blue Lagoon was created when hot water from the nearby "Svartsengi"geothermal power plant that formed due to heat exchange was discharged into the adjacent lava field.The Blue Lagoon is a unique wonder of nature, a pool of natural mineral rich geothermal seawater in the middle of a lava field. The lagoon is rich in a unique natural combination of minerals. Blue-green algae and white Silica mud form a light natural sediment on the bottom of the lagoon and give the lagoon its soft, milky, aquamarine colour. The Blue Lagoon is conveniently located 15 minutes from the international airport and 45 minutes from Reykjavik.
