The wonder of our water | Blue Lagoon Iceland

The wonder of our water

Thirty years ago, we began researching Blue Lagoon Water. Today, we have unlocked its sublime secrets. Harnessed its healing powers. Explored its astonishing possibilities.

A gift of nature

Born deep underground, it comes from a place no eyes have ever seen and ends in a place no heart can ever forget.

To experience Blue Lagoon Water is to harmonize with the bioactive wonders of nature and commune with the soothing heat of the geothermal earth.

A history of wonder

When an enchanting lagoon first materialized in the Svartsengi lava field, locals couldn’t resist the temptation to explore the blue warmth. Some people came to the water for healing. Others for pleasure. But all who came, left with a profound sense of wonder.

Across three extraordinary decades, Blue Lagoon Iceland has changed and evolved. But Blue Lagoon Water remains the same—forever relaxing, forever rejuvenating, forever timeless.

Our Story
