  • It has a swim-up bar and spectacular views of the ocean.
  • The lagoon is also a prime spot to see the Northern Lights.
  • Iceland is the first country in Europe to relaunch its tourism efforts after the coronavirus lockdown.

By itself, Iceland is already blessed with so much natural wonders. Hot springs, volcanoes, geysers, and lava fields – these are only some of the attractions that makes Iceland one of the top countries on most people’s travel lists.

Still, Iceland makes it even better by creating man-made attractions guaranteed to hook in more visitors. In 2021, a new lagoon is set to open in the country, complete with a swim-up bar and spectacular views of the ocean.

Sky Lagoon will be located in Kársnes Harbour, Kópavogur, which is just outside Reykjavik.
Designed by hospitality company Pursuit, the lagoon is also a prime spot to see the Northern Lights.

Dagny Petursdottir, general manager of Sky Lagoon, described the place as “perfect place for visitors to relax and unwind.”

“We are thrilled to unveil plans to develop a remarkable geothermal lagoon experience along one of Iceland’s most stunning oceanfront locations,” said a statement from Pursuit.

Sky Lagoon will also enable guests to connect with mind, body and spirit through the radiant powers of geothermal waters while taking in such impressive ocean views.”
Going here means immersing in the warmth of the geothermal pool while enjoying the dramatic views of the northern ocean stretches out before the place.
The company further described the lagoon as bringing that “Icelandic feeling of warmth and wonder.”

The announcement is so timely as Iceland became the first country in Europe to relaunch its tourism efforts after the coronavirus lockdowns. Minister for Tourism Thordis Kolbrun Reykfjord Gylfadottir said that the country wants to have all mechanisms in place to safeguard travelers when they make the visit.

The country made big use of large-scale testing, tracing and isolating in controlling the pandemic. Around 38 percent of the country’s population downloaded the country’s Covid-19 tracing app, Rakning C-19.

Travelers are likely to be required to download and use the app, according to the Icelandic government.
