Iceland, Reykjavik, The Blue Lagoon, Iceland's most famous tourist attraction

Iceland, Reykjavik, The Blue Lagoon, Iceland's most famous tourist attraction is located among the black lava flows outside Reykjavik. The geothermal spa owes its existence to the Svartsengi geothermal power plant powered by superheated seawater drawn from deep bore holes in the lava. The milky blue waters are rich in blue-green algae(cyanobacteria), mineral salts and fine silica mud.
