The Blue Lagoon in Iceland is not to be missed. This large lake of steaming hot water is perhaps the most supernatural looking body of water on Earth. Descriptions of its waters range everywhere from “the same colour as the new Gatorade drink” to “frosty blue.” Though the latter term may sound good, the water in the lagoon is anything but “frosty.” The temperature in the swimmable area averages about 40C (104F), and the soothing, mineral-rich water is rumoured to have curative powers. You can plaster yourself with the mineral-laden mud, let your shoulders be pummelled by the thundering waterfall, swim and venture into the sauna.
Many of our trips to Iceland include a visit to the Blue Lagoon, and if it's not in the itinerary there's usually time to fit it in on the free day.
