Geothermal baths and spas
Traditional healthy relaxation
A natural miracle that is closely related to Icelandic culture is the use of geothermal hot or hot water. The spa is a modern invention, but enjoying the various health benefits of bathing in thermal baths is a tradition in Iceland dating back to the settlement.
The luxury of geothermally heated water has also been increasingly used in the luxurious spa environment lately. The most famous of these is the Blue Lagoon,located in a lava field on the ReykjanesPeninsula, not far from Reykjavík. And, as unlikely as it may sound, Reykjavík has its own geothermal beach, with white sand and warm ocean water (aided by a small geothermal injection). Or unwind in the unique and new Sky Lagoon, a few minutes' drive from Reykjavik, where you can enjoy spectacular views from the spa where the lagoon turns into the Atlantic Ocean. Still, there are those who swear by the health benefits of swimming in the cold ocean, so every day you'll see Icelanders enjoying a dip in the cold Atlantic
