One of Mother Nature’s most amazing gifts.
Natural hot springs - pools of mineral-rich water that rise up from the earth’s crust) are found throughout our planet, and, from the grand bathhouses of Budapest to the Onsens of Japan, for centuries have been lauded for their ability to relax, heal and rejuvenate!
Perhaps the most famous hot spring on the planet and undoubtedly one of the most unique, the striking ‘Blue Lagoon’ is a natural geothermal spa situated amongst the spectacular rugged landscapes of southwestern Iceland. Renowned for its warm mineral-rich waters, which possess a wealth of healing qualities, as well as for its picturesque setting, the Blue Lagoon offers the perfect combination of beauty and tranquility and is a truly unmissable experience when visiting Iceland.
Natural hot spring water is high in a variety of minerals that provide numerous benefits, such as: boosting blood circulation; reducing stress and improving sleep; relaxing muscles; pain relief, and healing of skin conditions.
It depends, although many charge an entrance fee, in some locations (such as Kusatsu, Japan) some hot springs can be used free of charge.
Although you may stay in a hot spring for several hours, to prevent your body from overheating, it is recommended that you take a break around every ten minutes.
