Private transfer from Reykjavik airport to 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.
After a moderate 45 minute hike, don the appropriate gear and descend 120m (400 feet) inside the dormant Thrihnukagigur volcano. The various coloration of the rock inside the magma chamber and its vast size - the ground space is equivalent to almost three full-sized basketball courts and the height is such that the full sized Statue of Liberty would easily fit inside - give it a beautifully surreal quality.
