Blue Lagoon (Iceland)
Advantages: So relaxing
Disadvantages: will distroy your hair- use the special conditioner they give you!
I was lucky enough to get tickets for me and my boyfriend to go to the blue lagoon in ice land for my 21st birthday. And i couldnt of wanted or expected any thing better for my 21st birthday,
The Blue Lagoon is probably one of the best places i have ever been to in my life"!! Its just amazing.
I went in Feb, so it was still pretty cold, maybe 1 degree, a bit rainy but still a little snowy and very icey!
The drive to the lagoon, reminded me of what i would imagin a drive across the moon would be like. Being a volcanic island, its a very rough terrain, with very little vegeration or life!
you know your near the lagoon when you soon a bright blue glow in the puddles in the rocks. And trust me, this really stands out in the dark, grey landscapes and dull skys!
The lagoon is pretty cheap tp get into, and is obviously a pretty popular place to go to. i mean, could you really go to iceland and not go to the world famous blue lagoon!??
One you have got into your bikini or trunks, you have brave the freezing cold outside, dressed in very little to get into the hot water of the lagoon!! Its such an amazing experience. The water is so hot it comes as a bit of a shock. The heat of the water and the cold fresh air, create the whole place to be misty and very steamy. so no matter how many people are there, you almost feel as if you are on your own!
As you swim around the pool, all the people you come across are all very quiet and pieceful. This place is amazing. it makes you relaxed, and you feel as if you really are in the worlds most amazing spa.
The silica at the bottom of the lagoon is ment to have amzing qualities for your skin. But rather than dredging the botttom, i suggest you find one of the pots around the edge, which will have really pure clean silica, which you rub all over your body and face. Leave for a few minutes and rinse off to reveal your smooth fresh skin.
Also at the lagoon, there is a sauna within the rocks, which is also brilliant and well worth having a sit in! and a waterfall, which is so strong, that to stand under, you feel like to have had a serious massage.
If you need some time to chill out. Not that the lagoon isnt chilled. There is also a relaxing room, which is within the building and overlooks the stunning lagoon. This area is amazing to sit and relax. and the chairs in this room are like heaven!!! you must try them out.
I never had a spa treatment at the lagoon, but i can only imagin it to be perfect.
Everyone should visit the blue lagoon. No matter how may reviews you read about the place, you will never understand the experience, untill you have been your self!
Summary: a must see!!
