This spa was amazing. The seven steps were perfect. And the location is beautiful looking out at the water. The large glass window in the sauna just adds to the relaxation. We went to 3 thermal spas and this one was the clear favorite. Read more

This was the best spa I've ever experienced in all my world travels (we've been to 15+ countries). The staff are super friendly and professional. Definitely recommend the Sky package. This is where we saw the Northern Lights. Perfect for us on our last night in Iceland. Because Sky Lagoon is on a peninsula outside Reykjavik, it's a great way to see the Northern Lights. Read more

This was not my 1st experience of natural thermal baths, but the 1st in Iceland, and it was awesome.

The rest of the Pure spa experience- the cold bath, the body scrub, all were fabulous, to top off a totally memorable experience.

Tips for future travelers

Late evening / night is best because of the possibility of seeing the northern lights in the appropriate months. Dont overdo the alcohol while in the hot bath- it creeps up on you (message from a friend)

I honestly liked everything we did. Driving gave us a lot of flexibility. Visiting Iceland in the summer gave us 22 hours of daylight to do it. We never felt like we were rushed.
