Blue Lagoon

Everyone that travels to Iceland seems to visit the Blue Lagoon and I am no exception. The Blue Lagoon is a geothermal hot spring in Grindavík that was formed in 1976. The water is rich in minerals and has an average temperature of 37-39°C. The silica mud masks that they offer are great for your skin and leave you feeling refreshed! Upon arrival, you receive an electronic wristband that allows you to use your locker and pay for extras such as food and drinks. It’s a great system, very organized and easy to use. Showering naked is required before heading into the Lagoon, so check your modesty at the door (everyone has to do it and it’s nothing we all haven’t seen before, so no biggie). Ladies (or men with long hair)…make sure to put lots of conditioner in your hair and tie it up – I’ve heard horror stories about hair turning green or becoming very dry. It’s wonderful for your skin but for your hair, not so much! This was a really unique experience; I would recommend it to anyone visiting Iceland.
