Travel to Iceland & Blue Lagoon
On your way to Reykjavik and your hotel, enjoy a visit to the world famous Blue Lagoon, one of Iceland's most popular attractions. A natural geothermic spa, the warm seawaters are rich in minerals and silica which gives the water its mesmerising bright blue appearance.
