blue lagoon spa – iceland


Blue Lagoon Spa is founded on a unique source of geothermal seawater that originates in Iceland’s otherwise cold, ice-filled, environment.

Blue Lagoon has taken its location atop one of the world’s great geothermal wonders to create products and services either based on Blue Lagoon geothermal seawater’s active ingredients – minerals, silica and algae – or the close proximity to the seawater and its jaw-dropping natural surroundings.

Constant evolution and growth characterize Blue Lagoon’s development history. The company and spa are leaders in health related tourism, both in its spa and wellness services and in the development of the medical treatment for psoriasis. Blue Lagoon also develops and markets a skin care line based on the geothermal seawater’s active ingredients.

Guests enjoy bathing and relaxing in Blue Lagoon geothermal seawater, known for its positive effects on the skin. A visit to the spa promotes harmony between body, mind and spirit, and provides a stress-free escape from modern life. The spa’s guests rekindle their relationship with nature, soak up the scenic beauty and enjoy breathing the clean, fresh air.

Papa’s Got a Brand New (Diaper) Bag

Here’s a story: As a newborn, I was nicknamed the “Michelin Baby” by my (oh-so-sweet) family. Old photos reveal the unfortunate truth—my little body was so plump it resembled a pile of stacked tires. Thankfully, that nickname lasted only a year… Had these cool daddy diaper bags been around back then, I’m sure my father would have toted one in honor of me.

Hand-made in the U.S. from recycled truck tire inner tubes, Passchal’s “dad’s baby case” is the ultimate for manly dad-duty. Soaked in environmentally-friendly cleaner for three days, the bags are then padded and equipped with a handy baby bottle pouch and space for cell phone and diapers. The useful bag can also double as a messenger bag when running to and from the office.

$175 at Guaranteed for 50,000 miles or life, whichever comes first.
