Visitors to this new lagoon can expect a geothermal spa on the ocean with breathtaking, panoramic views of the North Atlantic, made even more special by the enchanting sights of sunsets or the Northern Lights.
Additional amenities will include a cold pool, sauna, an in-lagoon bar, a restaurant, and a gift shop.
Close to Reykjavík
The new wellness spa is located in Kópavogur, a town which is just a few minutes drive from Reykjavík’s city centre, and part of the greater capital region.
Kópavogur is the second largest settlement in Iceland. The Sky Lagoon is looking to create a peaceful oasis in the middle of this urban landscape with a 70-metre (230 ft) infinity-edge.
This edge is said to create a visual effect so it can blend into the ocean landscapes, allowing guests to fully immerse themselves in the beautiful Icelandic nature
Inspiration from Icelandic Turf Houses
The Sky Lagoon spa experience will be uniquely Icelandic, with inspiration derived from this nation´s tradition and design. This includes incorporating turf houses into the spa, as you can see in the photo below.
The project is developed by Pursuit, an attractions and hospitality company known in Iceland for running the popular FlyOver Iceland, a simulated flight experience found in the Grandi neighbourhood of Reykjavík.
Pursuit will operate Sky Lagoon through the Icelandic company Atlantic L ehf. (“Atlantic”) in cooperation with Nature Resort ehf.
