I don’t know about you, but these past three months in quarantine has made me seriously stir crazy. Normally I’m a jet-setter who’s flying to a new city every few weeks, and I honestly can’t remember the last time that I’ve been grounded for so long. But once this travel ban lifts, I’m going to be making up for lost time, that’s for sure.
One of the countries that’s been on my must-visit list for awhile now has been Iceland. They’ve got active volcanoes, massive glaciers, roaring waterfalls, natural geothermal waters, and of course the Northern Lights. There’s so much to see and do in “The Land of Fire and Ice” that you need a good week to take it all in.
Just minutes from the capital city of Reykjavik in Kársnes Harbour, Kópavogur is Sky Lagoon, an upcoming oceanfront geothermal lagoon resort that will showcase expansive ocean vistas punctuated by awe-inspiring sunsets, Northern Lights and dark sky views.
The lagoon’s design draws inspiration from the breathtaking, cinematic landscapes of Iceland, creating an oasis within the city. It has un-obstructed 230-foot infinity-edge that will produce a visual effect of blending into the ocean just beyond. Further design elements are influenced by Icelandic culture, creating a distinctive guest experience modeled after Icelandic turf houses. It will offer a restorative spa-like ritual rooted in Icelandic tradition.
“We are thrilled to unveil plans to develop a remarkable geothermal lagoon experience along one of Iceland’s most stunning oceanfront locations,” says Dagny Petursdottir, General Manager, Sky Lagoon. “The rejuvenating and relaxing retreat, situated against the dramatic backdrop of the Atlantic Ocean yet so close to Reykjavik’s vibrant urban center, will enable guests to connect with mind, body and spirit through the radiant powers of geothermal waters while taking in such impressive ocean views.”
Sky Lagoon is currently under construction and is due to be completed in early 2021. When finished, Sky Lagoon’s multi-sensory oasis will feature an ocean-side infinity-edge design in addition to cold pool and sauna experiences. Additional amenities will include an in-lagoon bar, dining experience and unique retail offerings.
As you can see, the Sky Lagoon looks pretty amazing, and it’s definitely going on my bucket list! What do you say, who else is with me?
