The Iceland Blue Lagoon tour


The Blue Lagoon (Icelandic: Bláa lónið) geothermal spa one of the is most visited attractions in Iceland. The spa is located in a lava field in Grindavík on the Reykjanes Peninsula, southwestern Iceland.

Blue Lagoon is situated approximately 13 km (8 miles) from the Keflavík International
Airport and 39 km (24 miles) from the capital city of Reykjavík.
That is roughly a 20 minute drive from the airport and a 40 minute drive from Reykjavík.

The warm waters are rich in minerals like silica and sulphur and bathing in the Blue
Lagoon is reputed to help some people suffering from skin diseases such as psoriasis.[1]

The water temperature in the bathing and swimming area of the lagoon averages 37–39 °C

(98–102 °F). The Blue Lagoon also operates a Research and Development facility to help
find cures for other skin ailments using the mineral-rich water.

The lagoon is a man-made lagoon which is fed by the water output of the nearby geothermal
power plant Svartsengi and is renewed every 2 days. Superheated water is vented from the
ground near a lava flow and used to run turbines that generate electricity.

After going through the turbines, the steam and hot water passes through a heat exchanger to provide
heat for a municipal water heating system. Then the water is fed into the lagoon for
recreational and medicinal users to bathe in.
