Named by National Geographic as one of the 25 Wonders of the World, the Blue Lagoon is a shimmering expanse of warmth, relaxation, and rejuvenation. 

Its unique geothermal seawater comes from 2000 meters within the earth where sea and fresh water converge in a tectonic frontier of porous lava and searing heat.  Propelled by extreme pressure, the water ascends to the earth's surface, emerging enriched with silica, algae, and minerals: the elements that endow Blue Lagoon geothermal seawater with its radiant, healing properties.

World of Wonders Services & Amenities 

From its humble beginnings in the shadows of a geothermal power plant, Blue Lagoon has evolved into a world of wonder, now encompassing a hotel, a restaurant, a luxury lounge, a research center, and a wealth of spa and refreshment facilities.  Achieving harmony with the volcanic landscape of Iceland's Reykjanes lava plain, the lagoon and its surrounding architecture embody the unification of the man made and the natural, and adhere to the highest principles of sustainability.

The Lagoon contains 9 million liters of water and is self cleansing, renewing itself every 40 hours. The water temperature is 37-40°C (98-104°F), year-round.

Sigridur Sigthorsdottir of Basalt Architects is the main designer and architect of the area, focusing on unity with the natural environment: the forms of nature merge with the forms of man.

In-water massage is something truly special. It takes place in a private area of the lagoon, where the warm geothermal water makes an unforgettable environment for healing and relaxation - a soothing experience for body and soul.

The Exclusive Lounge is a place where mind and body can experience Blue Lagoon's splendour in peace and tranquility. Transform the innate wonder of your visit to Blue Lagoon into an experience endowed with heightened states of comfort and luxury!

LAVA Restaurant combines modern design with the wild spirit of Icelandic nature. Built into a stunning lava cliff, with views over the lagoon, it is an unforgettable setting for a relaxed lunch, a family dinner or a romantic evening meal.
