Swimming in the Blue Lagoon in Reykjavik

Indulge in a swim in the Blue Lagoon in Reykjavik, synonymous with relaxation and well-being during your corporate retreat! The Blue Lagoon is a thermal spa consisting of hot water baths located in southeast Iceland, specifically on the Reykjanes Peninsula. This lake is entirely artificial, created in 1976 alongside the opening of the Svartsengi geothermal power plant. This plant benefits from the significant geothermal activity in this area situated along the tectonic plate boundary to generate electricity and heat homes. Producing an excess of hot water, the plant releases it into a volcanic area, gradually forming a lake 200 meters in length. The water is rich in silica and algae, giving it a milky blue color and a temperature ranging from 30°C to 39°C.

In the 1970s, this artificial lake was seen as an ecological disaster. However, a few years after its creation, a man named Valur Margeirsson decided to bathe in these waters. Suffering from psoriasis, he aimed to cure his condition by bathing in the silica-rich waters. He gradually discovered that the water and algae of this lake were healing him. Delighted, he spread the word, naming it Bláa Lónid in Icelandic (Blue Lagoon in English). Enjoy a truly relaxing team moment during this swim in the Blue Lagoon in Reykjavik. The group will also have the opportunity to bathe in the silica-rich and naturally warm waters. The curative aspect of these waters for skin diseases attracts numerous tourists throughout the year. On-site, you will find a treatment center. This activity will strengthen your team cohesion!
