The Blue Lagoon is Iceland’s most popular tourist destination. It is known around the world for it mineral-rich waters, which serve as a cure for many skin diseases, such as psoriasis.
The weather on the day of my visit was not ideal, with a brutally cold wind coming from the west along with a moderate amount of sleet. I hadn’t been dissuaded from visiting by this, since the waters of the lagoon are headed.
In the end, I wasn’t able to take my dSLR camera outside for very long with the wet weather, so most of these photos were taken with my GoPro camera or my iphone.
I had my own rental car, and the drive from Reykjavik was a little less than an hour. Many Icelandic tour companies offer excursions to The Blue Lagoon, both from Reykjavik and from Keflivak Airport, for the convenience of those who flights have a stopover in Iceland.
