Blue Lagoon, Reykjavik, Iceland

Amid the lunar-like arctic terrain of Iceland, the Blue Lagoon is a surreal vision of serenity.

It’s a massive 10,000 square foot outdoor geothermal bath, surrounded by snow-capped lava rocks. Steam escapes off the milky blue seawater, which is over 100 degrees Fahrenheit.

The bath is known for its healing properties, particularly for those suffering with the skin disease psoriasis.

Nordic Visitor offers packages to Iceland that include the Blue Lagoon, boiling mud pots and, depending on the season, the Northern Lights (winter) or the Midnight Sun (summer).
