Facts about Blue Lagoon:

  • Blue Lagoon was a human discovery made by an accident!

Geothermal plant next to the Blue Lagoon, Svartsengi was built first. The plant uses this land’s volcanic landscapes to produce heat energy. The drilling was done to create electricity and extract hot water for nearby communities.  The Blue Lagoon was originally an accidental by-product of this process.

  • The true source of the steamy therapeutic water is the result of the runoff which gets filtered straight into the Blue Lagoon, which is the true reason that heats the water and keeps it perfectly set with a temperature of over 37-40°C (98-104°F) all over the year.
  • Water in the Blue Lagoon is not actually blue!

The water is actually milky white in colour. The sunlight makes it appear blue. You can see the water’s true milky white colour if you pour it in the transparent cup.

  • There are different sections of the Blue Lagoon. Make sure you explore them all. The variations of the temperatures can be experienced too. Especially do not miss the silica mud and the swim up bar section.
  • The silica mud is easily deposited in these pools. You will observe people using it as a face and body masks. The gooey silica mud masks help the skin to get purified and cleanses impurities.
