The Blue Lagoon

Can you spell psoriasis?

overcast 50 °F

The best cure for jet lag (and two layovers) is a trip to the Blue Lagoon directly from Keflavik airport--a 20 minute drive to a world of soothing waters and relaxation.


We opted to stay at the Blue Lagoon Clinic, which is a beautiful hotel with its own private lagoon for guests, connected to the main facility. The clinic is a major treatment center for people with psoriasis, a skin condition that leaves red, blotchy, scabby spots on the body. A two to three week treatment, is a cure for most patients--and I couldn't imagine a more beautiful and relaxing place to do it.


The Blue Lagoon itself is a tourist mecca but the facility is very well planned and run, and with such a large natural hot spring, filled with healing blue algae and silica mud, you leave feeling baby soft and completely rejuvenated.
