What do you think of when you think of Iceland? Ice, Northern Lights, perhaps when you get down the list you might reach geothermal energy. Well much of Iceland is powered by such energy, and the Blue Lagoon spa is a prime example of what an amazing experience such geothermals can be.

Set slightly out of Reykjavik this largely man made spa utilises natural sulphur springs to heat the lagoon pool.

Facilities:
A huge lagoon pool:
The pool is the main feature in the spa and is massive, once you enter make sure you walk all around, because the temperature and bottom composition varies throughout, with some areas (nearer the spring) are really hot, and some areas are much cooler. The bottom composition varies from a natural mud (which the spa also sell, they claim it has some sort of revitalising properties).

Sauna and Steam room:
The spa has a medium sized sauna (can fit about 12 people comfortably) and a similar sized steam room. Both are very nicely attired and quite comfortable, the only problem is that you eventually have to get out into the cold Iceland air.

Cost:
If you've ever been to Iceland then you'll know how expensive everything is in general, but this place goes even further. It cost K1400, there are approximately 100K to £1 meaning that it costs about £14.

Products:
The Spa has really cashed in on the whole idea of natural mud (I gave a pot to my mum, and to be honest I'm not really sure if it worked). They also do everything from towels and robes to shot glasses.

Overall:
I visited this place in the middle of a snow storm, an I had a blast, my head was freezing but the rest of my body was boiling. If you want an interesting experience this is well worth it and I would definitely recommend it (if you can spare the cash).

Note: Icelanders shower in the nude (you have been warned)!!

Sounds interesting, but I have to say that Iceland isn't high on my agenda. Duncan
