Part XIV - The Blue Lagoon
Who ever goes to Iceland and doesn't visit the famous Blue Lagoon ? Yes, it's pretty much a touristy thing, and maybe not the most pleasant of experiences when it's packed full of people, but still it's something not to miss. Most guides suggest that you go there either immediately after arriving or before departing, since it's on the way to the airport. We chose to spend our last night there. For accommodation nearby there's the Northern Light Inn, but even better is the Blue Lagoon Clinic. It is the clinic attached to the Blue Lagoon where they offer several types of skin treatments, but you can also book a room there if they're available. The best part ? They have a private area of the lagoon just for the guests staying there, and it was so much better than the lagoon itself. We tried both, of course, and it was midsummer's night too, so luckily for us the lagoon had longer opening hours that day.
And so we didn't see night for over a week, but the sunsets were definitely spectacular.
And that's it, our trip to Iceland finished and blogged about. Thanks for all the comments on the traveling posts, I'm glad I have inspired some of you to visit this beautiful country. It is definitely worth it, trust me. As for us, we hope to go back one day soon, it's just one of those places ...
