description One of a kind thermal bath on the face of the Earth situated in the middle of a lava field. One can take a bath in the used water of a geothermal powerplant (in the background). The exploited hot water is used to produce electricity. The used, cooled water - that is still 40 degrees Celsius warm - is pumped outside to fill the pools of the Blue Lagoon. The blue colour of the water is due to its high silica content.
