A new geothermal lagoon

- Blog

Construction is about to begin for a new geothermal lagoon in Kársnes in Kópavogur. Plans are for the spot to open in 2021 with a hot spring, a cold pool and saunas. Further construction will take place once the first aspect has been completed as the project has been split into four parts.


Steve Moster, Viad's president and chief executive officer, said “We are also very excited to expand our iconic locations platform with the addition of a new geothermal lagoon attraction in Iceland. With a scenic oceanfront location, and close proximity to downtown Reykjavik, this lagoon will offer guests a convenient, world-class experience that connects them to an iconic place known for its natural beauty and geothermal resources.”


Pursuit will operate the geothermal lagoon in partnership with Geothermal Lagoon ehf, the Icelandic entity that owns the lagoon assets. The experience is currently in development and is expected to open in 2021.
