Pursuit Opens New Geothermal Oceanfront Pool Near Reykjavik This Spring

Sky Lagoon will immerse guests in a multi-sensory oasis as they partake in the spa-like Icelandic tradition of geothermal bathing.

Pursuit will expand its collection of unforgettable and inspiring travel experiences with the development of a premium oceanfront geothermal lagoon.

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.

“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,” explains Dagny Petursdottir, general manager of Sky Lagoon.

The lagoon’s design draws inspiration from the breathtaking and cinematic landscapes of Iceland, creating an oasis within the city. Its unobstructed 230-foot 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,” says Petursdottir. “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, a dining experience, and unique retail offerings.”

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 are anticipated to open in spring of 2021.

“At Pursuit we are focused on connecting guests to iconic places through unforgettable and inspiring experiences,” says David Barry, president of Pursuit. “Iceland is one of those authentic and remarkable places that has the power to excite and inspire. Following the recent launch of our visually stunning FlyOver Iceland experience, we are thrilled to announce our continued commitment to Iceland with the inclusion of Sky Lagoon to our collection of world-class travel experiences.”
