Upon arrival, you will be met by your private chauffeur and start your day with a drive towards the dramatic volcanic peninsula of Reykjanes, where several dormant volcanoes and extensive lava fields reside. You will enjoy a wonderful day at the world-famous Blue Lagoon - a unique wonder of nature with mineral-rich geothermal water, set in the middle of a black lava field. The high levels of silica and minerals give the lagoon its rich blue colour. At the Blue Lagoon, you will have access to the Exclusive lounge, an oasis of calm and indulgence, offering you more privacy and comfort.
The lounge has a cozy fireplace, a private indoor lagoon with direct water access to the Blue lagoon and a private outdoor lounge deck with a stunning view across the lagoon. Enjoy complimentary use of towels, bathrobes, slippers, and Blue Lagoon skin care items.
You can also pamper yourself with a relaxing in-water treatment or an indoor massage (optional and at extra cost).
