The Blue Lagoon had been on my bucket list for a very long time (who doesn’t have it on their list!) and after deciding an evening appointment would be perfect after a day of sightseeing, my friends and I headed for an unforgettable night of Icelandic relaxation.
It wasn’t quite what I expected - it was definitely more of a luxury spa experience - but at night, you can’t deny that the Blue Lagoon looks extremely magical. The light blue misty waters were lit up by the warming glow of small lights dotted around the outline of the natural rock formations – it looked beautiful.
My friends and I enjoyed a night of drinks, relaxation and wonderful silica mud masks, but then we heard a screech. I spun quickly to see a woman pointing upwards. I looked up and there they were – the magnificent Northern Lights - dancing in the dark Arctic sky through a break in the clouds. It was absolutely incredible to finally see them.
I feel so lucky. How many people can say they ticked two bucket list items off in one night?"
