    Blue Lagoon - Iceland!

    December 23, 2019 in Iceland ⋅ ☁️ 0 °C

    One of the pinnacles of our trip was the VERY expensive day at the Blue Lagoon natural spring. Volcanic, good pH on the skin, just a 5 hour wait when we got here - no one told us to book! 😡

    Reykjavik Day 3 morning

    May 23, 2019 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, 2019 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, 2019 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

    December 21, 2019 in Iceland ⋅ ⛅ 1 °C

    Perfect time I went there just while the sun was going down (if u can say going down as the sun is low the entire day).

    Blue lagoon is just like our German Thermalbad just less crowded and more chilled atmosphere, barely kids.

    Got to get a face mask there and a drink. Perfect ending of this trip.

    Blue Lagoon

    July 26, 2019 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

    Blue Lagoon

    August 29, 2020 in Iceland ⋅ ☁️ 12 °C

    So wie wir vor 2,5 Wochen gestartet haben, beenden wir nach knapp 5000 gefahrenen Kilometern die Reise in der Blue Lagoon bei Regen. Baden war trotzdem schön. Immerhin hatten wir sonst nebst dem Anreisetag fast nur sonnige Tage ☀️😎Read more

    Blaue Lagune

    August 4, 2020 in Iceland ⋅ 🌧 10 °C

    Nachdem wir pünktlich gelandet sind und sowohl Koffer als auch Mietwagen(Toyota Yaris)in kürzester Zeit abgeholt hatten ging es kurz zum Supermarkt und nach weiteren 20 min Fahrzeit direkt zur Hauptattraktion im Südwesten Islands, der blue Lagoon.
    Ein themales Freibad, 37-42°C Temperatur, hervorragend wenn es oben rum kühl und verregnet ist und es dampft, sehr mystisch.

    Salzmaske, helle Schlammmaske oder doch eine Schaummaske?


    Mud musk hieß die.

    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
