Visit the Blue Lagoon Visit the Blue Lagoon

The Blue Lagoon geothermal spa is one of the most visited attractions in Iceland. Temperatures in the bathing and swimming area of the lagoon averages 37–39 °C (98–102 °F) and the waters, rich in minerals like silica, are reputed to help some people suffering from various skin ailments. The lagoon is man-made and fed by the water output of the nearby geothermal power plant Svartsengi, where superheated water is vented from the ground near a lava flow and used to run turbines that generate electricity. After going through the turbines, the steam and hot water pass through a heat exchanger to provide heat for a municipal water heating system. Then the water is fed into the lagoon for recreational and medicinal users to bathe in.

Reykjavik revels in its reputation as being one of the most modern, forward thinking societies in Europe. The city tour includes all the major landmarks.

The Höfdi house is the venue of the “end of the cold war” meeting in 1986 between President Reagan and General Secretary Gorbachev. We also visit Reykjavik’s colourful old quarter with its quaint wooden houses and narrow streets. This private city tour also includes a stop at the Perlan Museum, which opened in 2017.
