When you’re having a good time, time flies and too soon our trip to Iceland had come to an end. On our last day my husband and I headed to the no. 1 attraction in Iceland – the famous Blue Lagoon geothermal spa. Located in a lava field, about 50 kilometres from Reykjavík is unlike some other thermal waters found in Iceland manmade. It was formed by “accident” in 1976 when run-off from the nearby geothermal power plant formed a pool. In the years that followed, the benefits of the bright blue water to the skin were discovered and spa was built on site. Blue Lagoon soon became a popular spot to visit.
