    Reykjavik Day 3 morning

    May 23 in Iceland ⋅ ⛅ 9 °C

    An excursion to the Blue Lagoon started our day following another wonderful breakfast buffet. The trip took us through the surreal lava landscape of the Reykjanes Peninsula to the geothermal spa located in the middle of a rugged lava field. The water of the lagoon is 37 - 40C mineral rich and reputed to have healing properties. Its blue colour and high lava wall create a unique atmosphere. Our package included a mineral mud facial and a beverage at the swim up bar. It is a gorgeous day here with clear blue skies. We all agreed our skin was smooth as a baby's bum after our healing spa.Read more

    The Blue Lagoon

    March 30 in Iceland ⋅ ⛅ 0 °C

    A trip to Iceland just wouldn’t be complete without a visit to the iconic Blue Lagoon. It really is that blue! The algae and minerals in the water add the colour. It was a very strange feeling to be in the warm waters with snow falling on our faces. It’s a big complex with loads of people- we almost prefer the smaller baths we visited during the week in Iceland. To finish off the day a heavy snow shower greeted as we left the baths. While everybody else was rushing to get out of the snow we didn’t object to standing in it and absorbing the softness and quietness of the snowfall. Tomorrow we are heading home in the early hours.Read more

    Akureyri - from the air

    March 30 in Iceland ⋅ ⛅ -1 °C

    Iceland has impressed! All I had to say this morning was ‘WOW’. I’m not an easy flyer, but our flight back to Reykjavík this morning was simply spectacular. This little country has the most extreme landscapes I have ever seen. A young landscape in comparison to other areas of the world Iceland was born (and continues to grow and change) from the volcanoes and the shifting of the tectonic plates. It is not an easy country for humans to live in, but the Vikings did, and managed to survive and prosper. Here is a taster of our flight.Read more

    Blue Lagoon

    July 26 in Iceland ⋅ ⛅ 13 °C

    Water was so warm. I got the cheapest package which was the "comfort package" which included a drink (I got a green smoothie with icelandic skyr yoghurt!) and a silica mud mask. There is a strong waterfall that you can stand under; I had a sore shoulder collarbone and it felt like a massage that kneaded out the kinks. They also have steam rooms.Read more

    Swimming in a Snowstorm-Blue Lagoon

    February 15, 2015 in Iceland ⋅ ⛅ 34 °F

    We shared a pizza for lunch at the N1 station in Borgarnes and started back south as an intense, but short, snowstorm hit. We went back through the six-kilometer tunnel, southward this time, on our way past Reykjavik to the Blue Lagoon. Both Glenda and I had some initial glitches with the computerized bracelets. Apparently, the attendant failed to register ours properly. Soon we got them working and entered the pool. While we were swimming in its pool, a snowstorm started. Swimming in hot water in the middle of a snowstorm outside is among the strangest things I have ever done. Completely comfortable in the water, my ears and face were still uncomfortably cold. We returned to the Hotel Center Plaza around 5:30 pm. Check-in and parking were much easier this time, since we had done it all before a week ago. For supper Glenda had a traditional pylsur hot dog from the little hot dog stand in the plaza. I was still not hungry after the big pizza I had in Borgarnes for lunch. We were assigned a room that was larger than the one we had occupied a week before. We prepared our luggage for the trip home tomorrow. I will be reluctant to hand in the keys of the Toyota RAV 4. She has been a great little horse. We just got the ironic news that Asheboro is expecting a winter storm tomorrow. we might be delayed in arriving at home. Yet, we are not worried. One thing we have learned in Iceland is that everything is dependent on the weather, and we can adjust.Read more

    Up at 6:40, breakfast and a bus out to the BLUE LAGOON!!! It was 1degree when we left 7 raining and windy by the time we arrived.

    Yay swimming in the rain!

    It is everything I had hoped it would be. Everything!!! Warm, blue of blue that you can’t see the bottom because of the white. Surrounded by black rock!

    Absolutely the best happenstance for me!

    I am filled with joy!

    Blue lagoon galerii

    January 17, 2018 in Iceland ⋅ ⛅ -3 °C

    Ära minnes sai jalutada mööda sinist kallast, kus inimesi vees polnud. Päris ilus, kuid mitte enam nii soe, pigem leige.

    Suundusime Reykjaviki suunas ja sealt edasi ida suunal Geysiri juurde. Ilm oli väga päikeseline ja ilus. Enne kohale jõudmist avastasime, et sõitsime terve tee tuleta.

    Taivo sünna Blue Lagoonis

    January 17, 2018 in Iceland ⋅ ⛅ -3 °C

    Kell 10 oli meil pilet blue lagooni. Sellel kellaajal veel rahvast väga hullusti ei olnud. Sisse minnes pidi ennast korralikult ära pesema. Vesi oli mõnusalt kuum 38-40kraadi. Väljas väga külm. Avastasime, et vesi oli ka rängalt soolane. Mudamask oli seal kõigile tasuta, pidi poore vähendav olema. Sulistasime seal 1,5h. Kadri juuksed on nüüd mega takused, kuigi ta kasutas balsamit küll.Read more

    2.9 Blue Lagoon

    August 30, 2018 in Iceland ⋅ 🌧 10 °C

    Finally and somehow also sadly, we were back in Reykjavik.

    One final thing we booked in advance! The Blue Lagoon. Expensive, but worth the price.

    A thermal spring or bath which is fuelled with the water of the geothermal power plant located next to it. Traditionally, the plant operators directed the water, which comes from two kilometres depth and is used for heating, to an open area where it created a lake. The lake was then used by locals for relaxation and enjoyment. Because of the silica, sulfur and other natural substances (mainly salts) in the water, it evolves this fabulous colour. And in combination with the black surrounding ... a mazing!

    It’s supposed to be good for your skin! Lots of beauty products are sold at the place.

    Bláa Lónið

    September 13 in Iceland ⋅ ⛅ 9 °C

    Die berühmte Blaue Lagune. Der Weg dorthin ist toll. Wohin man schaut nur versteinerte Lava es erinnert etwas an Hawaii 💗 auch die Lagune selbst sieht schön aus. Wir wollten rein aber hatten leider nicht online reserviert und konnten somit nicht hinein. Zum Glück. Denn der Eintritt von 50 Euro p.p ist schon sehr hoch, natürlich ist es eine riesen Anlage, aber es ist halt doch nur warmes Wasser was hellblau ist. Ich habe noch keine Resonanzen der heilenden Wirkung gelesen demnach sind wir auch nicht zu einem späteren Zeitpunkt hin und müssten nicht unbedingt hinein.
