The Blue Lagoon Tour
While browsing The Blue Lagoon’s website, I came upon a page that describes a guided tour of the lagoon. I thought it would be great to learn about The Blue Lagoon before taking a dip at its hot pool.
My husband and I enjoyed the tour immensely. Our guide, Hildur, related how the idea of the lagoon came about. The Icelandic people believe in elves. She told us how for two years the lagoon’s construction was besieged by problems until an elf whisperer told the management to carve a mail box on lava rock and send a letter to the elves explaining what the construction is about. After that, construction went on smoothly. Today, the elf mail box is part of the lagoon restaurant’s wall.
