Located in Kársnes Harbour, Kópavogur, just minutes from Reykjavik’s vibrant city centre and iconic urban landmarks, Sky Lagoon will showcase expansive ocean vistas punctuated by awe-inspiring sunsets, Northern Lights and dark sky views.
“We are thrilled to unveil plans to develop a remarkable geothermal lagoon experience along one of Iceland’s most stunning oceanfront locations,” says Dagny Petursdottir, General Manager, Sky Lagoon. “The rejuvenating and relaxing retreat, situated against the dramatic backdrop of the Atlantic Ocean yet so close to Reykjavik’s vibrant urban centre, will enable guests to connect with mind, body and spirit through the radiant powers of geothermal waters while taking in such impressive ocean views.”
The lagoon’s design draws inspiration from the breathtaking and cinematic landscapes of Iceland, creating an oasis within the city. Its un-obstructed 70-metre (230 ft) infinity-edge will produce a visual effect that will blend into the ocean landscape. Further design elements are influenced by Icelandic culture, creating a distinctive guest experience modeled after Icelandic turf houses and its restorative spa-like ritual rooted in Icelandic tradition.
“Spending time relaxing in natural geothermal waters is an integral part of our culture here in Iceland. Sky Lagoon’s multi-sensory oasis will feature an ocean-side infinity-edge design in addition to cold pool and sauna experiences. Additional amenities will include an in-lagoon bar, dining experience and unique retail offerings,” said Petursdottir.
Pursuit will operate Sky Lagoon through the Icelandic entity Atlantic L ehf. (“Atlantic”) in co-operation with Nature Resort ehf., an Icelandic company. The facilities around the geothermal lagoon experience are in construction, anticipated to open spring of 2021.
