This astonished spa is situated in a lava field in a fishing town, Grindavík, on the south-western Iceland; about 12 miles/19 km away from Keflavik International Airport and about 24 miles/39 km away from Reykjavik the capital of Iceland. It is a 20-minute car drive from Keflavik airport and a 40-minute drive from Reykjavik. The geothermal water comes from 2,000 metres below the surface, where both freshwater and seawater combine at extreme temperatures. It is then harnessed by drilling holes at a nearby geothermal power plant, Svartsengi, to create electricity and hot water for nearby communities. The temperature of the water in the swimming and bathing area of the lagoon averages from 37–39 °C (98–102 °F), which is perfect for recreational and medicinal bathing. The warm water is rich in various minerals as Sulphur, Silica, Sodium, Potassium and Chlorine. Bathing in that mineral enriched water is a natural remedy to skin diseases like Psoriasis.
