I want to go there 1

Easily the most photographed site in all of  Iceland, The Blue Lagoon is perhaps the most supernatural looking body of water on Earth. Descriptions of its waters range everywhere from “the same color as the new Gatorade drink” to “frosty blue.” Though the latter term may sound good, the water in the lagoon is anything but “frosty.” The temperature in the swimmable area averages about 40C (104F), and the soothing, mineral-rich water is rumored to have curative powers.

Hey Kathleen, I'm a regular follower of Grosgrain and I just jumped over here to check things out, and I'm so excited to see the Blue Lagoon! I've been there twice! It's more incredible than you can imagine, and if you ever have plans to go anywhere in northern Europe, it's not that hard to get there--just fly IcelandAir. Every flight to Europe stops in Reykjavik, and there are shuttles to the Blue Lagoon from the airport; I think it's about a 15-20 minute ride. If your stop is more than a few hours (which can be arranged when you book your tickets), it's totally doable. It's like a free trip to Iceland on top of wherever else you're going. The airline charges you for freakin' soda, but it's totally worth it for the Blue Lagoon.

Also, love the kids' rooms!

been there - nice and warm, maybe a little too warm, and though it might look pretty, it smells like ten people with a stomach virus in the bathroom at once (sorry about the images running through your mind right now) - but it does

That's amazing - I didn't even know it existed until your post today.

I love your blog, btw :)

Meh, it just smells like sulphur. If you've been to Yellowstone you know what I'm talking about. To be honest I didn't even remember the smell because I thought it was so magical.
