Iceland: Part 3 begins with a health-improving, and pricey, trip to the Blue Lagoon.
While Reykjavik itself has (at least) eight geothermal pools to swim in (at a very reasonable price), the Blue Lagoon's steamy waters
are nestled miles away among the lava rocks near the Reykjanes Geothermal electricity plant.
The waters maintain a consistent 37 C to 40 C year round, and are rich in minerals like silica and sulfurm and bathing in the Blue Lagoon is reputed to help some people suffering from skin conditions.
The water is the output of the geothermal plant, after its goes through a process of heating water for the southern peninsula and Reykjavik population.
