People often associate Eco-friendly vacations with images of roughing in the wilderness; nights spent in a drafty wood cabin with no electricity and limited lumbar support. In actual fact there are many resorts that are both green and glamorous, where you can enjoy luxurious amenities without leaving a carbon footprint.

The Blue Lagoon harnesses the natural minerals emanating 6500 feet beneath the earth’s surface. The warm aqua blue waters are rich in minerals like silica and sulfur providing many health benefits. The water temperature hovers around 100F year round. Slow poach your cares away at this unique arctic destination.
