8. Relax in the Blue Lagoon
Whilst Scandinavia is known for its chilly temperatures, its volcanic activity means that there are also plenty of natural hot springs for bathing in too. Iceland’s Blue Lagoon is the most famous geothermal pool and is perfect for those wanting the ultimate hydrotherapy experience. Technically, the blue lagoon isn’t natural given it was created as a the result of creating a geothermal power plant, however the hot water itself is natural, heated by lava deep beneath the earth.
