The Blue Lagoon geothermal springs in Iceland is amongst the most visited attractions here. The Blue Lagoon geothermal sea-waters are a part of the eco-cycle here. Here nature and science work in harmony to offer numerous benefits. The hot spring or seawater starts off at 2000 meter or 6562 ft from beneath the ground. Since the earth is heated by its own natural forces, the water at this depth is at a temperature of 240°Cor 464°F with 36 times the pressure on the surface of the earth.
As the hot water rises, it comes in contact with cooling magmatic intrusions and locks within itself earth’s rare minerals. This results in this unique natural source which is known for its healing powers. Every year thousands of global tourists visit here to have a bath here.
