The Blue Lagoon, as people know it today, opened its doors in 1992 after the formation of the Blue Lagoon company in the same year. The area though has a much richer history that dates back to 1976. The pool that would become the Blue Lagoon had a humble beginning, simply being used as a bathing pool for the workers at a nearby geothermal plant. Over time people began to notice that bathing in this water seemed to have a positive effect on the skin of the people who were bathing in this mineral rich water. By 1981 the pool had increased massively in popularity as word of its healing properties spread to nearby towns.
Today the Blue Lagoon is a massively popular tourist destination and people come from all over the world to experience it. In recent years the Lagoon has undergone a number of massive renovations to increase its size and with the addition of hotels, spas and restaurants the area has become a luxury resort. You can also now buy Blue Lagoon skin care products that are made with the silica mud found at the lagoon.
The Blue Lagoon is located close to Keflavík airport making it a great stop for people who are arriving or departing from the airport. The lagoon offers some baggage storage options so you will be able to relax knowing everything is taken care of.
