At the heart of the Svartsengi Resource Park is one of Iceland’s prides, the Blue Lagoon. More than a body of water, its warm seawater serves multiple functions including medicinal relief, skin care, leisure, and relaxation for tourists and locals that immerse themselves in it. But the facilities of the spa are not limited to its popular waters. Blue Lagoon also has a skin care shop and dining spots to satisfy your hunger and food cravings.
The Blue Lagoon geothermal spa is usually open 13 hours daily throughout the year. After closing time, guests are allowed to stay for up to 45 minutes to take pleasure in the water’s warm but relaxing temperatures that go between 37 and 39°C. Adults can bathe in the spa for a fee of 38 Euros. Teenagers and seniors have a discounted entrance fee of 7 Euros. Children that are 13 years old and younger, on the other hand, can get in free when they come with guardians. Tourists that have forgotten to bring with them their towels and bathing suits can rent them at a cheap rental fee of less than 10 Euros each.
The resort’s skin care shop features different products with minerals derived from the Blue Lagoon itself. Men and women who are conscious of their skin can purchase Blue Lagoon products from the shop. These products range from face care to body care. Other products from the gift shop include gift sets which tourists can take home to their loved ones as well as relaxing meditation music collections.
Those that would want to take advantage of the healing effects of Blue Lagoon can visit the resort’s so-called “clinic”. At the clinic, they have psoriasis treatment sessions for people suffering from this chronic skin disease. Opening hours of the clinic vary on each day of the week but only last for five hours daily.
Of course, guests aren’t expected to bathe in the waters of the Blue Lagoon all day. That is why the spa has set three dining spots to fill the guest’s stomachs with scrumptious food. At the LAVA Restaurant, as much as 300 tourists have the chance for fine dining experience. For a more affordable yet healthy and delicious food, tourists can drop by at the Blue Café which also offers a spectacular view of the lagoon. Meanwhile, the Lagoon Bar offers light refreshments for outdoor eating.
