Pamper yourself and indulge in the seven-step ritual of Reykjavik’s newest geothermal spa, the Sky Lagoon. Those looking to kick back and unwind in the comfort of Iceland’s natural springs should visit this magnificent new facility as soon as they can.
You’ll start your relaxation journey by being picked up at your hotel in Reykjavik. From there, it’s a short drive towards the Sky Lagoon. You’ll find it just at the edge of the Icelandic peninsula, which overlooks the Atlantic ocean on Iceland’s southwest coast.
As you enter the facility, you’ll make your way through a cave-like entrance into the lagoon, where you can step into the warm waters and relax. That’s the first of the seven steps you’ll take towards complete relaxation.
Once you’ve gently warmed yourself up, you may find the next step to be a shock to the system. You’ll be taking in the brisk, Icelandic air before plunging into a cold pool to stimulate and awaken your senses.
Next comes a relaxing stay in the sauna, where you’ll be treated to an obstructed sea view while your body soaks in the heat. Gentle ocean sounds will help your mind be at peace as you let the warmth open up your pores and release the stresses from within. Afterward, you’ll step through a cold mist to refresh yourself as you prepare for what’s next.
At the apex of the ritual, you’ll be treated to the Sky Lagoon’s signature Sky Body Scrub to exfoliate and re-invigorate your skin. Made from a unique sea salt blend, this will leave your skin soft and glowing with the fresh scent of spring. Next, going into the steam room will allow your body to hydrate in the scrub while taking deep breaths to clear your mind and lungs.
Finally, rinse off the scrub in the shower and dip back into the warm lagoon to complete the ritual. Close your eyes and take a deep breath. Enjoy the moment and lose yourself in the peace and calm of Iceland. The Lagoon bar can offer refreshments should you want them. You’ll be taken back to Reykjavik to conclude your journey when you're ready.
This ritual has historical roots for Icelanders, and you are encouraged to experience it for yourself. The Sky Lagoon offers unparalleled relaxation with an ocean view that will undoubtedly be unforgettable. Check availability by choosing a date.
