    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.

    Blue Lagoon Spa

    October 28 in Iceland

    Foggy, drizzly and looks like a lunar landscape.
    Lunch booked at 2pm. Drinks beforehand... Joy has the beer, Chuck the Prosecco.
    Just another day...

    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.

    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

    Grüße von der blauen Lagune

    November 7 in Iceland

    Greetings Back from Iceland! Heute waren wir fleißig fleißig... Los ging es heute vormittag in Gårdur und haben die Leuchttürme bzw Küste unsicher gemacht... Dann sind wir ein Stückchen der Küste entlang Richtung Süden vorbei am Hanging Rock, als uns das Wetter überraschte... Regen Regen Regen... Weit am Horizont ein kleines Licht was uns rufte "Kommt her, hier ist das Wetter besser".... Wir fuhren also weiter... Und das Wetter wurde besser! Sind vorbei an urzeitlichen Landschaften... Einfach Wahnsinn! Und der tolle Schwefelgeruch... Wie Landluft, bloß schwefeliger! Irgendwann sind wir am Brù Milli Heimsálfa gelandet,einer Brücke über einer Felsspalte... Und nicht irgend einer Spalte, nein die Spalte wo die eurasische an die nordamerikanische Platte stößt... Unglaublich! Weiter gings zum Brimketill... Einer Küste mit extrem hohen Wellen und einem riesen Pool, der sich mit Wasser füllt. Das wäre am heutigen Tag Selbstmord gewesen... Sehr beeindruckend. Auf dem Rückweg sind wir zur blauen Lagune gefahren....so viele Menschen... War wie im Thüringen Park... Gutes Nächtle 🖖Read more

    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?
