Ice-melting Attractions in Iceland

Planning a family vacation in Iceland is always best if you are prepared with information that you need to know with your vacation.

Here are few things about vacation destination in Iceland that you can consider on your list of things to visit.

The Blue Lagoon

If you are into supernatural effect of the place you would like to visit, consider Blue Lagoon on your list of place to go in Iceland. This is considered to be one of the most visited places in Iceland because of the characteristic of the water in the lagoon. Swimming in the waters will make you experience its curative powers and you should be ready for the 40C or 104 F temperature of the water. The rich minerals in the waters are one of the reasons as well why it can cure. On the other hand, even if the Blue Lagoon is considered to be supernatural, people in Iceland do not deny the fact that the place is man-made. Due to the run-off from  Svartsengi power plant the Blue Lagoon came to birth.  To produce heat and energy the plant needs to pump water and the excess water is released into the lagoon to supply water. Mind you, even if the water came from the power plant it’s guaranteed to be clean and healthy.
