This is one of Iceland's most popular attractions, and it's not hard to see why; the beautiful milky-blue opaque water contrasts starkly to the surrounding black lava field covered with dark green moss. The Blue Lagoon is a large lake that has the perfect temperature to bathe in, on average it is 39°C/102°F. Since the water is continually streaming into the lagoon, all the water is renewed in 48 hours, making sure it stays clean. The Blue Lagoon has a number of spa amenities available to all guests. Those include tubs of white, silica- rich geothermal mud mask, sauna and steam rooms, a man-made waterfall, and a cave to relax inside, option to book an in-water massage and an indoor relaxation area with a view over the lagoon itself. Only a 10-minute walk from the Blue Lagoon lies the Silica Hotel.
