Experience the seven-step Sky Ritual

Blessed with geothermal heating and a stunning landscape, we Icelanders have long come to warm pools for relaxation and connection. Over the centuries, we've developed a way to combine the healing powers of warm water, cold water, warm steam, dry heat and fresh air. We use our traditions to integrate these natural elements to promote our wellbeing, inside and out. We're proud to share this with you at Sky Lagoon.

Step 1

Embraced by the soothing lagoon

Welcome! It's time to settle in. Relax in the lagoon, breathe in the refreshing air. The first stop on this journey is the healing warm geothermal waters of the Lagoon. Take it all in.

Step 2

Invigorated in a glacier-fresh pool

Boost your happiness with cold therapy. Wander in the fresh Icelandic air. Or if you’re brave, take a quick dip in the cold plunge. It’ll stimulate your immune system, decrease blood flow in the body and tighten skin. A natural high!

Step 3

Amazed by the endless sea and sky

After a cold awakening, visit the sauna for 5 to 10 minutes. Allow the heat to open pores, remove toxins and cleanse your skin. While the heat works its magic, enjoy breathtaking views through the largest single window in Iceland and the sensory treat of coastal aromas and acoustics.

Step 4

Refreshed in an energizing mist

Next, balance the heat by stepping slowly through our cold fog-mist space. It’s stimulating and rejuvenating for mind, body and soul. Take a deep breath and refresh your senses!

Step 5

Rejuvenated with a cleansing scrub

It’s time for re-invigoration. By applying our signature Sky Body Scrub, your skin will be exfoliated and glowing. Slowly and gently, feel the Sky Body Scrub improve how you feel, inside and out. This is the highlight of The Ritual. Feel the glow!

Step 6

Warmed in a blanket of steam

Steam will once more open your skin, allowing it to absorb the key therapeutic elements of The Ritual and maximizing the hydrating benefits of the Sky Body Scrub. Moist warmth eases your breathing and improves overall body function. Open up and feel clean and clear.

Step 7

Cleansed in a pure, gentle shower

Finally, close your eyes, feel the results and enjoy the moment! From head to toe, inside and out, you’ll feel relaxed, rejuvenated and energized. Slow down and enjoy it!
