The Blue Lagoon, is geothermal spa located about 30 minutes from downtown Reykjavík (Iceland), is a natural wonder of the world. The lagoon is one of the most popular attractions in Iceland. It is hugged by black lava and sprinkled with green moss on the outer edges. The decadent blue water has temperatures around 102 degrees Fahrenheit year-round. It’s absolutely pure luxury and the most incredible way to spend a day, in either the dead of winter or the height of summer. Kosherica will be busting this miraculous place in the Summer of 2022 on a Glatt Kosher Gourmet cruise. We are thrilled to explore such gorgeous and exotic destinations in pure comfort.
