After a long day of earning smileys for epic T5 caches, racking your brain on D5 puzzles and battling through each stage of a long multi-cache, you have to have a way to relax. For many, it’s kicking back and enjoying a nice cold beverage. If you happen to be in Iceland, you can actually relax and earn a smiley at the same time—not to mention learn something about the Earth. The Blue Lagoon in Iceland has long been a retreat for locals and tourists alike. The mineral-rich water is heated by geothermal vents and is said to cure a variety of ailments. We can’t comment on its healing properties, but one thing we do know: a dip in here is a perfect way to relax.

What geocachers are saying:
“Beautiful spot. It turned out to be a pretty chilly day and so the steam rising off the lagoon was being blown about. Almost ethereal. Thanks for the earth cache. The landscape is fascinating and I suspect Iceland could provide a lot of earth caches.” – taylormd
“We spend about two hours in the water; delicious! Due to the mud, our faces looked 10 years younger afterwards. Unfortunately, it only lasted for a few minutes. Thanks for the earth cache!” – peterenzo
