Dip 'n' Sip in Iceland's Blue Lagoon: Surreal Spa on Top of the World; Earth-Warmed Waters Have Healing Powers for Body & Soul

    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. Flights connect through the airline's
 hub in Reykjavik to Greenland, the Faroe Islands, Copenhagen, Oslo, Stockholm,
