COLUMBIA, Md., Feb. 26 /PRNewswire/ -- Imagine sitting up to your neck in iridescent water, surrounded by eerie lava formations that rise unexpectedly from the depths of the Earth-warmed lagoon as a sulfur-scented mist hangs like a shroud above your head. You are served an exotic azure cocktail as you make your way slowly to a special cave carved by Nature into the dark lava, your feet sinking into soft sand ... No, this is not a dream, as thousands of visitors to Iceland have discovered! Whether vacationing in Iceland or enjoying one of Icelandair's "Take-A-Break" options, travelers have made Iceland's Blue Lagoon the most popular year-round attraction in the North Atlantic. Situated in the middle of a lava field in southwest Iceland, surrounded by snow-covered mountains, this geothermal lake has a temperature of 100 degrees year-round. The water is said to have healing powers because of the white silica mud and blue-green algae that form a natural sediment on the bottom of the lagoon. A modern cafe offers light snacks or gourmet meals, as well as floor-to- ceiling views of the surreal pool. Non-swimmers may relax on the deck or take advantage of the excellent souvenir shop, featuring a special line of deluxe Blue Lagoon skin care products that are sold throughout the world. Additional information -- and photos -- are available on the website at www.bluelagoon.is. Icelandair travelers may discover the joys of the Blue Lagoon from North American gateways in Halifax, Boston, New York (JFK), Baltimore/Washington (BWI), Minneapolis/St. Paul and Orlando.
