New Oceanfront Geothermal Lagoon With A Swim-Up Bar Is Opening In Iceland Next Year

A brand new oceanfront geothermal lagoon with a swim-up bar is opening up in Iceland next year and by the looks of it, it’s going to be at the top of our bucket lists in 2021. 

As the coronavirus pandemic has lead to our holidays being cancelled, it’s pretty much certain that next year will be jam-packed with plans for holidays abroad.

To be honest, pretty much anything would do. As long it’s a trip away with family, friends or a partner, it would just be lovely to have some kind of adventure.

Well, there’s some good news when it comes to holidays, as plenty of beauty spots around the world can now be added to your post-pandemic bucket list. In particular, the geothermal lagoon with a swim-up bar is one that has caught quite a bit of interest.

The Sky Lagoon is set to open up on the oceanfront of Kársnes Harbour, Kópavogur, which is not far from the capital city of Reykjavik.

Whilst also boasting beautiful views of the Atlantic ocean throughout the day, it will also offer incredible sights of the Northern Lights in the night too.

With a dramatic ocean backdrop, guests can sit back and relax whilst enjoying sunsets, sunrises and evening stars.

As well as a swim-up bar, there will also be a cold pool, sauna and the manmade pool will feature a 70-metre infinity that blends into the ocean landscape. With all these features, guests will truly be left spoilt for choice.

Although an opening date hasn’t been set by Pursuit, the hospitality company who is behind the project have stated that the lagoon should be ready in time for spring 2021 – giving you plenty of time to save your pennies.
