The Entrancing Blue Lagoon Thermal Waters In Iceland Pictured On An Acrylic Fridge Magnet
An immensely popular tourist attraction in Iceland, the Blue Lagoon Thermal Waters cater for all visitors’ needs. The attraction is situated 45 minutes from Reykjavik in Grindavik, and is centred on a lagoon which was originally created as overspill for the Svartsengi geothermal power station. The lagoon holds six million litres of geothermal sea water which comes from 2000 metres underground and is at a temperature of approximately 38 degrees Celsius by the time it reaches the lagoon. Bathing in the waters is not the only facility available to visitors with steam baths, saunas, shops, and cafes all accessible on site. The beauty of the lagoon is without doubt a major high point though as can be seen on this acrylic fridge magnet from the catalogues of World Wide Gifts.
The History And Stories Of Iceland
One of the best sources for a view of the history of the beautiful country of Iceland is a set of literary works called the Icelandic sagas. These works were written by a number of unknown authors from the country in the 13th and 14th centuries. They tell the stories of Icelandic people in the Viking Age, around the year 1000. The 40 works provide a detailed view of Viking life and the international exploration undertaken. It is said that author J.R.R. Tolkien gained inspiration from the tales. The travels and conquests of the Vikings are a long way back in Iceland’s past but they helped form the country that exists today. It is a place of great scenic beauty as depicted on our attractive acrylic fridge magnet.
