Day 4 arrived to overcast skies. That was fine, this was our Blue Lagoon day and we didn’t need sunny skies for that. The Blue Lagoon is definitely a “tourist trap”, but a very well organized one and something that needs to be experienced. The lagoon is a man-made lagoon which is fed by the water output of the nearby geothermal plant and is rich in minerals.
Our admission included a glass of wine and I had opted for a 30 minute massage for each of us. They do the massages in the water; you are on your back on a floatie with a towel on top of you. The massage is done from below and every few minutes you are “dunked” in the water to keep warm. It was absolutely surreal – getting a massage in a lagoon of hot water located in the middle of a lava field in Iceland in February.
