Exclusive Blue Lagoon
The Blue Lagoon is one of the country’s most visited attractions and exclusive spa facilities. These breathtaking Icelandic thermal pools are located on a lava field in the southwest of the country. Set outdoors with a stunning mountain backdrop on the Reykjanes Peninsula, this spectacular location attracts guests from all over the world. The Geothermal Spa is man-made and rich in minerals, some of which are said to aid people suffering from certain skin conditions. Bathing temperatures are 37 – 39°C (98 – 102°F), making it the ideal way to relax on a trip here.

Massages are also available in the pools so that guests can make full use of the heated water and relax at the same time. For an unforgettable romantic break or honeymoon celebration, treat your loved one to the ultimate getaway. Packages offer access to the lagoon’s exclusive lounge facilities, massage treatments, champagne and dinner at the LAVA Restaurant. Regardless of which package you choose, one thing is guaranteed — you will leave Iceland’s thermal pools with mind, body and spirit revitalized.
