Discover Le Blue Lagoon Iceland

Located 25 miles from Reykjavik, the Blue Lagoon ("Blaa Lonid" in Icelandic) is without a doubt the country's most popular spot for relaxing. This aquamarine expanse of freshwater is actually an artificial lake fed by the discharge from a geothermal power plant which draws water with a temperature of 240°C from 124 miles below the earth's surface. The lunar landscape of lava and lichen fields that can be seen through a misty halo of smoke make the place well worth a visit. Both tourists and locals regularly come here to enjoy the splendidly hot water - between 36°C and 40°C - and also because the water is believed to cure eczema and psoriasis.
