    Iceland opens ‘Sky Lagoon’ with huge infinity pool by the ocean and a dreamy spa

    Iceland's on the green list for Brits and if you're planning a trip, you may want to leave space on the itinerary for the country's ridiculously pretty new Sky Lagoon.

    The new oceanfront spa experience is a huge oceanfront geothermal lagoon, and it has some seriously cool features.

    We're talking a huge natural infinity pool that's 264ft-long and looks out to the North Atlantic Ocean, a huge sauna with epic views of the landscape thanks to the fact it boasts Iceland's largest window, and heaps of oceanfront dining experiences.

    The Sky Lagoon by Pursuit is located just minutes outside of Reykjavik's city centre too, so it's easy to reach if you are planning a getaway.

    It's actually a seven-step spa experience dubbed The Ritual, based on Icelandic traditions including combining warm and cold waters, warm steam, dry heat and fresh air.

    Guests can opt for a Pure Pass which includes the Ritual, or if you're after something extra special there's a Sky Pass with access to the lagoon's private changing rooms and other amenities.

    Feeling peckish? The lagoon bar tucked away in the side of a cave is a must-try for local beers and cocktails, or there's a Sky Café where you can tuck into sandwiches and soups. Foodies may also want to bookmark the on-site Smakk Bar which serves up meals inspired by Iceland's traditional dishes.

    Booking an Iceland holiday?

    The UK government has confirmed that Iceland is on the green list, meaning you can visit from May 17 with no need to quarantine when you're back in the UK. (You will still need a pre-departure test and to take a PCR test on day two when you're back).

    Iceland itself will be open to Brits who are fully vaccinated against Covid-19 (meaning having received both doses of one of the approved vaccines), with no need for quarantine.

    If it's deals that you're after, your best bet is a package holiday to Reykjavik – but always make sure to check a firm's booking policy in case you're unable to travel for Covid-related reasons.

    Travel companies such as easyJet holidays, Jet2holidays and First Choice all offer Iceland packages and flexible bookings. Icelandair can also be a good source for cheap getaways.

    If you can be flexible with your dates it's worth using price comparison websites like TravelSupermarket and Icelolly – sometimes just travelling a day earlier or later can make for a cheaper break.
