The Blue Lagoon

The Blue Lagoon, Iceland

After Driving 40 Minutes outside of Reykjavik (and 90 minutes outside of the farm we are staying on), through terrain that I can only describe as looking like what you would imagine had you stepped foot on the moon, we arrived. I had been to other Geothermal pools, even ones in Iceland itself, but they were nothing in comparison to this magical place. The milky blue water was like the perfect bath and some spots were quite hot which was lovely on the chilly, gray skied Mid-August afternoon on which we visited. We had purchased the most basic entry which was perfect for us since we had brought our own towels and there were buckets of natural silica mud masks to lather on your skin, so we gave ourselves a free spa treatment while floating in the peaceful water. When you get too thirsty or just fancy a treat you can swim up to the pool bar for smoothies, slushies and ice cold beers and no money is necessary you just swipe your wrist ban used for entry and settle up when you depart. Its the ultimate day of relaxing and rejuvenating and even our two year old loved it and chilled out for a couple of hours. Also being only 20 minutes from the international airport it's the perfect entrance or exit from this beautiful land.
