You can’t go to New York City and not visit the Statue of Liberty or miss out on going to Times Square; similarly, the next time you plan a vacation in Iceland you must visit the epic new geothermal lagoon set to open in 2021. It won’t be wrong to say this is going to make its way to being one of the most instagrammable locations in the world very soon. Hospitality Company Pursuit announced in a statement their plans to expand its collection of distinctive travel experiences with an infinity edge geothermal lagoon. Called Ski Lagoon, it will be located in Kársnes Harbour, just minutes from Reykjavik’s vibrant city center. You truly haven’t seen anything like this structure; it draws inspiration from the breathtaking and cinematic landscapes of Iceland, creating an oasis within the city. While rest and relaxation are a given at Sky Lagoon what will etch as a wonderful memory are the mesmerizing views of the Northern Lights and dark sky and sunsets that seem unreal. Guests can connect with their mind, body and spirit through the radiant powers of geothermal waters at this rejuvenating and relaxing retreat. The man-made lagoon features 70-meter (230 feet) infinity-edge along with a cold pool, sauna, in-lagoon bar, dining, and shopping. If any place does justice to the beauty of Iceland it is the Sky Lagoon and is without a doubt one of the best things to do in Iceland.
The lagoon’s general manager, Dagny Petursdottir, said: ‘Spending time relaxing in natural geothermal waters is an integral part of our culture here in Iceland’. Iceland has announced its plans to open its borders to certain tourists on June 15. However, the opening date for Sky Lagoon is slated for spring 2021.
