The Blue Lagoon's White Mud
If you'd rather substitute grey mud for white, creamy silica, Iceland's Blue Lagoon is a must-add to your bucket list.
The man-made lagoon is located in a lava field on the Reykjanes Peninsula and fed by mineral-rich warm blue waters from a nearby geothermal power plant. Bathers enjoy access to water temperatures that vary between 99–167 °F, while applying silica deposits to their skin and taking in the region's beautiful volcanic scenery.
For those battling psoriasis, the silica-rich waters of the lagoon are said to offer a natural form of relief. You'll also appreciate the swim-up bar and complimentary drink that comes with each soak.
