    2.9 Blue Lagoon

    August 30 in Iceland

    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.

    Swimming in a Snowstorm-Blue Lagoon

    February 15, 2015 in Iceland

    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

    Taivo sünna Blue Lagoonis

    January 17 in Iceland

    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.

    Blue lagoon galerii

    January 17 in Iceland

    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.

    Blaue Lagune

    August 3 in Iceland

    Die größte Thermalquelle Island ist ein Muss für die Reise. Der Besuch war angenehm und es war auch nicht voll. Die Anlage ist so groß, dass sich alle Touristen gut verteilen können. Wir waren aber auch sehr spät in der Lagune (22:00 Uhr). Es gab ein Freigetränk und eine wunderschöne Maske.

    Day 5 - Blue Lagoon

    March 13, 2017 in Iceland

    Running out of time, we were back i the car for the 4 hour drive back West to visit the Blue Lagoon. We'd been warned it was a bit of a tourist trap, but still worth a visit. The rumours weren't wrong and queueing up with hundreds of other tourists didn't feel quite so serene. The place was lit of beautifully, and though not as warm as the Secret Lagoon it was strange floating in warm water whilst surrounded by the wind whipping sleet and rain across the pool. The best part of our visit was after most people had left - once again the clouds floated away and leaving the sky glittering with stars.Read more

    Blue Lagoon

    August 11, 2017 in Iceland

    Blue Lagoon was our first stop and it turned out to be a good decision after the long flight from Hong Kong via London. We purchased the package of "Comfort" but if you bring your own towels, you can select the lowest tier one instead. Yes, it's expensive but it's Iceland, right?

    The Famous Blue Lagoon

    July 20, 2013 in Iceland

    Well what a fabulous day we had.
    Celebrity Captains Club, arranged a trip to the Blue Lagoon for all the elite members on board, and best of all it was free.
    I checked on the excursions list and this trip was listed at $299!!
    I couldn't imagine Royal giving you that for free lol.
    The lagoon itself is an amazing place, it is a natural lagoon which is geothermically heated.
    Apparently it is so chock full of minerals that bacteria cannot live in it, so it's perfectly safe to bathe in it, in fact it's supposed to be very good if you have any skin complaints.
    The water is one third fresh water and two thirds salt water, and it's like taking a hot Radox bath, also it's only waist deep so safe for everyone, the only thing you should watch is the lagoon bottom which being volcanic, is quite rough.
    You can also use some of the volcanic mud, which they have in containers around the lagoon, as a face pack.
    It's said that it can make you look ten years younger, but I'm afraid it didn't work on me, I only managed to look 8 years younger!! lol.
    It was a fab day out and one I'd recommend to anyone, it's definitely the best thing about coming to Reykjavik.
