5 places to go instead of Blue Lagoon, Iceland

Have you ever dreamed about visiting Blue Lagoon in Iceland? If you have, you're not alone. This geothermal spa has been on the top of many people's travel lists for years. And while it's definitely a unique and amazing place, there are other options around the world that are just as good, if not better. Here are a few of our favorites.

Myvatn Nature Baths

These baths are located in a stunning volcanic area in northern Iceland. The water is just as warm and soothing as at Blue Lagoon, and the views are absolutely incredible.



This pool is located in a small valley in southern Iceland. It's one of the oldest pools in the country, and definitely has a more rustic feel than Blue Lagoon. But it's still a great place to relax and take in the incredible Icelandic scenery.
