If you are in need of a real Spa-weekend and feel like getting away from the stressing city and see something totally new and different, I would give you the tip to go to Iceland for the weekend. Not only will you be able to admire the amazing landscape, consider treating yourself to a relaxing day at the spa at the uber-chic Blue Lagoon. I spent this past New Years at the spa resort and it is definitely a memory that will last me a lifetime.
The Blue Lagoon geothermal seawater is a part of an ecocycle where nature and science work in harmony. The seawater originates 2000 meter/6562 ft beneath the ground where it is heated by earth’s natural forces. At this depth the temperature is 240°C/464°F and the pressure is 36 times the pressure on the earth’s surface. The geothermal seawater comes into contact with cooling magmatic intrusions and captures the earth’s minerals, resulting in this unique natural source known for its healing power and actives.
The composition of minerals in the water is very distinctive and has a high level of silica. Its environment is characterized by high temperature and salinity level of 2.5% which is 1/3 of the ocean’s salinity level.
The contrast between the cold air and the hot water is amazing. Many of the skin products they have at Blue Lagoon has unique ingredients from The Blue Lagoon itself. A lot of different treatments and massage types are avalible in this beautiful and fashionable setting. You will not regret your visit!
