The Wonderful Blue Lagoon Hot Springs of Iceland




The wonderful Blue Lagoon is a geothermal spa and it is one of the most visited attraction in Iceland. The water temperature in the bathing and swimming area of the lagoon averages 37–39 °C (98–102 °F). The warm waters are rich in minerals like silica and sulphur and bathing in the Blue Lagoon is reputed to help some people suffering from skin diseases such as psoriasis



The lagoon is a man-made lagoon which is fed by the water output of the nearby geothermal power plant Svartsengi and is renewed every 2 days. Superheated water is vented from the ground near a lava flow and used to run turbines that generate electricity. The Blue Lagoon was used as the pit stop for the first leg of The Amazing Race 6. The Blue Lagoon was used for the thermal spa scenes in the filming of Hostel: Part II. It was also shown in the Incubus documentary Look Alive, when the band visited Iceland. It was also shown in fifth cycle of Britain's Next Top Model which used as photo shoot location.



The beautiful therapeutic Blue Lagoon is located in a lava field in Grindavík on the Reykjanes Peninsula, southwestern Iceland. In 1976 a pool formed at the site from the waste water of the geothermal power plant that had just been built there. In 1981 people started bathing in it after the discovery of its healing powers for psoriasis. In 1992 the Blue Lagoon company was established and the bathing facility was opened for the public.
