Midnight at the Blue Lagoon
That first dip into the warm, cloudy blue waters feels like you're taking the bath of your life. It can get crowded but because the of the steam and the size of the area it really doesn’t ever feel busy, but if you really like the thought of having the space virtually to yourself then you will be pleased to hear that Blue lagoon is now open till midnight during the period 1st July to 15 August. How lovely to avoid the daytime crowds and just relax late into the night in a warm pool staring at the stars.
The water remains a constant 36-39 degrees celcius. The lagoon's white silica mud gently cleanses and exfoliates the skin and has a revitalizing effect. The blue-green algae nourishes and softens your skin, while the mineral salts balance and relax both body and mind. It does however play havok with your hair so make sure you cover your hair with conditioner after going in to avoid the (not so sought after) Worzel Gummidge hair look the next day.
The Blue Lagoon is a manmade geothermal pool, not a natural phenomenon as thought by some but it is none the less an amazing experience not to be missed. Going to Iceland and not seeing the Blue Lagoon would be like going to Egypt and not seeing the Pyramids. A must-do
We often send our clients to Blue lagoon on the way back to the airport (as its just 20 minutes away from Keflavik airport) which is a lovely relaxing way to end your visit to a country with so many extraordinary sights. With a whole morning to kill, what better way to while away the time than by relaxing in a geothermal spa?
