The Blue Lagoon also has a clinic for treating skin. In addition, the Blue Lagoon was man made in 1976 by a geothermal power plant.Today, the Blue Lagoon is known as one of the seven wonders of the world.
SKAFTAFELL ICE CAVE
Another place to visit is the Skaftafell Ice caves also known as the Crystal Cave. Many may think that they are man made but they are not. These natural ice caves are only found in the winter time when water freezes. New caves are formed each year, in different places. Whats cool about them is the photos that can be taken because the light shinning through the glaciers look blue. Many go and hear constant craking sounds in the cave and may think its about to collapase but its not the glacier is just moving.Each millimeter the glacier moves a loud sound is heard.During the winter is the best time to go because the cold temperatures hardens the ice. Visiting the Crystals Cave allows you to see an amazing natural creation.
ICELAND NORTHERN LIGHTS
