Blue LagoonNovember 24, 2017 in Iceland ⋅
Had a late breakfast and a lazy morning looking around the shops before setting off to the Blue Lagoon at one o'clock.
This is a geothermal pool that is kept at a steady 37 degrees by adding sea water to the already hot water from the ground.
The salt in the sea water when added to the naturally found minerals from beneath the ground are meant to good for your skin.
However the walk from the complex to the pool when it's minus ten degrees (when taking into account the wind chill factor), especially when you are already wet having had to shower once you have changed, is certainly an experience!
I also never thought I would ever find myself queuing up to apply a mud pack to my face!
They also have a swim up bar!
But once you are in.... You suddenly remember that you have to get out again!!!
All in all an experience that we will never forget and that we are very glad that we did.
Sorry no pictures...... The one that is included was taken this morning when out and about (at 11 o'clock!).
Apparently come the middle of December, they only have two hours of daylight from 11:00 to 13;00!
Off to try and see the Northern Lights again tonight....xxRead more
