Heavens. National Geographic says this natural volcanic hot spring is one of the top 25 wonders of the world. In January, though, when it’s wet and windy…the Blue Lagoon goes up several pegs on my list! We stopped in on our way to the airport (KEF) last week. It’s glorious. The water is warm (98-102ÂºF) and there’s a steam bath, a sauna and a massage/spa center. Plus there are several snack bars and a very nice restaurant, Lava.
Of course, all of Iceland is a spa–with hot pools and steam baths around the country. But the Blue Lagoon is uniquely situated between Keflavik International Airport and Reykjavik. It’s a great way to start or end your trip to Iceland (or both!). Check it out.
