About Reykjavik

The city’s vibrant arts and music scenes are always showcasing something new. Set astride the Mid-Atlantic Ridge, Reykjavik’s spirit swells from its deep reservoirs of geothermal energy. Spend some time down by the harbor where you can enjoy the freshest North Atlantic seafood catches, then take in an art gallery or two before retiring to one of the city’s famous hot springs. From there you can enjoy splendid views of the Northern Lights. Iceland’s Viking history is ever-present and the city is a fantastic place for families with children. Unspoiled nature, majestic beauty, and friendly residents; truly, Reykjavik is an incredible destination.

Reykjavik
Blue Lagoon in Iceland has been serving as an enchanting therapeutic spa with simplistic and respectful architecture which reflects Icelandic Modernism for 27 years. Located in the Reykjanes Peninsula region of Iceland's southwestern coast, this geothermal spa is famed for its super-heated milky blue waters rich in algae, silica and mineral salts. The Lagoon is set on a cragged lava field which is fed by the Svartsengi geothermal plant, engulfed with stunning landscape.
