Wow! That is how I can sum up the Blue Lagoon. It is a short trip from Rekyavik, and an even shorter one from the international airport at Keflavik.

The blue Lagoon is an artificial lake created to take the outflow from a geothermal power station. It is heavy with minerals and is consequently bright blue. There is a smell of sulphar in the air but the feeling of floating in a warm bath, with a black volcanic vista all around makes it worth the smell. After bathing in the water my skin was amazing, all the pores were so clear and clean.

Moving on to Geysir (sic), this is a couple of hours drive from Rekyavik, via Pinguidllir, pronounced Thinguidllir, the seat of the worlds oldest democratic parliament. On arrival in Geysir you again get that now familiar smell of sulphur. Geysir is a small area with many hot pools, some of them boiling fiercly, others simply hand hot. Again, they are loaded with minerals and many are bright blue in colour. The great Geysir, which gave its name to all others, has been inactive for many years and sits serenely overseeing its smaller cousins. There is only one active "spurter", called Strokkur, or little Geysir, which goes with a whoosh every 2-3 minutes. There is a small cafe/gift shop, and a full restaurant nearby to relax end enjoy the scenery.
