Blue Lagoon is a unique experience – an unforgettable opportunity to energize with the forces of nature. Set in the pure heart of the Icelandic landscape, Blue Lagoon is a truly special world.
Only about 18 km from the hotel.
Gunnuhver, the mud pools form where steam from boiling geothermal resevoir water emanates and condenses and mixes with surface water. Accompanying gases such as carbon dioxide and hydrogen sulphide make the water acid.
Reykjanes Area, The South-Western region of the Reykjanes Peninsula is the home of a future geothermal park where the North Atlantic ridge rises from the ocean. Here you can find 100 different craters, caves and lava fields, a variety of birdlife; astonishing cliffs, high geothermal activity, and black sand beaches.
The lava-scarred Reykjanes peninsula lies on one of the world’s major plate boundaries, the Mid Atlantic Ridge. The Bridge between two continents at Sandvík is a small footbridge over a major fissure which provides clear evidence of the presence of a diverging plate margin. The bridge was built as a symbol for the connection between Europe and North America.
At Krýsuvík, dramatic red, green, and yellow coloured hills frame an expanse of steaming volcanic vents and boiling hot springs. Only a thirty minute drive from the centre of Keflavík, Krýsuvík is one of the most striking landscapes in Iceland.
