Pictured: Blue Lagoon geothermal spa in Iceland.
The spa is located in an otherworldly lava field in Grindavík on the Reykjanes Peninsula and it is very popular with tourists visiting Iceland. In fact it is so popular that you could expect to see the same faces in the pool that you saw on your place to Iceland! Luckily the pool is very large, so there should be enough space for everyone. The Blue Lagoon volcanic waters are full of minerals as well as sulphur so be prepared to get used to the unpleasant smell of sulphur.
