BLUE LAGOON: Formed by accident when condense steam from the power station was released into the lava field (to disappear) but the mineral solution made the lava watertight instead.
Having been examined by scientists & declared safe, it was found to be excellent for healing some skin diseases.
Proceed to the BLUE LAGOON & take a bath. The water is reputed to have healing properties for sufferers of skin ailment. This is one of the highlights of many visitors to Iceland.
After having examined the combination of minerals in the water, scientists declared the BLUE LAGOON a spa. So, for those who are interested in spa (like some of my colleagues & their spouses), you'll be happy to know that the Blue Lagoon now offers spa packages & you can choose between energy, balance & nutrition treatments! Rejuvenate & enjoy!
If you are going to the Blue Lagoon... that is fabulous! It's a really cool place to swim and see. If you have long hair, don't forget to bring a hairbrush or comb! Also, don't forget your towel!
The closer you swim to the Power Plant, the warmer the water gets. It can be pretty cold right where you get in, especially in the winter months.
