Iceland seems to be a cold and unfriendly country for tourists. 

However, Iceland is extremely popular among people who love interesting experience and wonderful nature and history.

Huge National Parks with glaciers and historical museums, where you will get to know more about Vikings and the history of Iceland.

One of the most famous places in Iceland, thanks to social media, is The Blue Lagoon.

Actually, it is a man-made geothermal spa.

Located in the lava field on the Reykjanes Peninsula, this territory is a perfect place for Svartsengi geothermal power station, that supplies hot water to the lagoon.

It will take about half an hour to get there from Keflavík International Airport.

And you will have a chance to take a hot bath with the temperature averages 37–39 °C (99–102 °F).

The temperature is absolutely comfortable comparing to the extremely hot water from the ground which runs the turbines of the power station, the supplier of electricity.

Many people are amazed by the milky blue colors of the Blue Lagoon.

The main reason of such color is a high concentration of silica in the water.

If you take a piece of the ground from the Lagoon you will see a soft mud of white color.

This mud is formed by silica as well.

The water contains also algae and different salts.

Another advantage of the Blue Lagoon, it works all year round.

So, you can plan your trip at any time.

This is the best place to take photos for sure.

Wellness industry also utilizes this natural beauty by providing cosmetics (skin care) based on the mud, saunas, and massages.
