Blue Lagoon Iceland Hot springs hidden secrets

1. Although it is the most famous lagoon from all over the country, Iceland Blue Lagoon spa is not a natural spring. The land where the complex was built has been shaped by nature; all that lava fields and mosk from the nearby area are naturals, nothing man-made.

The shape of the pool was shaped by lava, but the water from the pool comes from the geothermal power plant from the nearby area.

2. Early hours in the morning are best to visit the pools and have the entire complex for yourself! Why? Generally, tourists hate to wake up early in the morning.

Going to these pools at 8 a.m or 9 a.m is a really great option as the place is not crowded and you can have the pools just for yourself

3. The water of Blue Lagoon Iceland spa is renewed every two days! Don’t imagine that somebody comes and empty the pool and refill it with fresh water.
