What to expect at Sky Lagoon Iceland
Sky Lagoon is a geothermal spa in Iceland that includes a waterfall infinity pool that drops right into the Atlantic Ocean.
It includes a swim-up bar and a grass-covered skincare ritual house.
The water in the pool is fresh geothermal water, pumped and cooled before being reintroduced with cool water.
This results in blue-clear water staying around 38–45 degrees, making it an excellent spot for visitors to soak up and enjoy.
In addition to the stunning views and comfortable amenities, Sky Lagoon offers a 7-step ritual inspired by Icelandic bathing culture.
The ritual begins with a relaxing soak in the lagoon, followed by a cold plunge in the nearby Ashna pool.
Next, visitors enter the sauna for a few minutes of heat therapy before cooling off in the cold mist.
The ritual concludes with a Sky Body Scrub, a revitalizing blend of sea salt and lava.
Here is the Sky Lagoon 7-step ritual in detail:
- Relax in the Lagoon: This is the first step of the ritual, and it is simply a chance to relax and soak in the warm geothermal water.
- Cool down with the Cold Plunge: The cold plunge is a traditional Icelandic bathing practice, and it is a great way to invigorate the body and mind.
- Relieve stress in the Sauna: The sauna is a great place to sweat out toxins and relax the muscles.
- Refresh in a Cold Fog-Mist: The cold fog-mist is a refreshing way to cool down after the sauna.
- The Sky Body Scrub: The Sky Body Scrub is a revitalizing blend of sea salt and lava to make your skin smooth and refreshed.
- Steam room: The steam room is a great way to open up the pores and allow the skin to absorb the benefits of the Sky Body Scrub.
- Step out after a Shower: This is the final step of the ritual, a chance to relax and enjoy the warm geothermal water one last time.
If you want a relaxing and rejuvenating experience, then the 7-step ritual at Sky Lagoon is a great option.
