One of the most famous attractions in Iceland is the Blue Lagoon, and it's little wonder why. Unlike anything else on earth, the lovely milky-blue water contrasts sharply with the surrounding black lava field and its creeping gray moss. It sits at a temperature of 39 ° C (102 ° F) throughout the year making it the ideal bathing temperature.
The lagoon is located in southwest Iceland on the Reykjanes Peninsula, a region known for its barren landscapes and cone-shaped volcanoes. It is just a 15-minute drive from Keflavík International Airport and a 30-minute drive from Reykjavík, Iceland's capital city. That makes the first stop ideal when you arrive in Iceland, or the last stop before you leave the nation.
The Blue Lagoon rapidly became the most visited attraction of Iceland due to its great place, its relaxing waters and wealthy skin nourishment, rivaled only by the Golden Circle sightseeing tour.
