Halldór Eiríksson echoes Iceland's dramatic landscape in new Sky Lagoon

The need to re-energise, relax and restore is integral to both our physical and mental wellbeing
– David Barry

Icelandic attractions and hospitality brand, Pursuit, has launched Sky Lagoon, a restorative geothermal retreat just outside Reykjavik, situated against the striking backdrop of the North Atlantic Ocean.

The new retreat is a competitor to the world-famous Blue Lagoon, which is located a 10-minute drive away.

Features of the geothermal Sky Lagoon include an ocean-side 75-metre, (246 ft), infinity-edge pool showcasing expansive ocean and sky views, a sauna with Iceland’s largest window, and architecture inspired by historic turf houses.

The destination’s design, by Halldór Eiríksson, a partner at T.ark Architects, draws inspiration from the breathtaking, cinematic landscapes of Iceland and has been created to provide an oasis near the city.

Layers of grey-blues, deep greens, whites and creams have been chosen to mirror the landscape, while the addition of textures such as precious metals and wood create an infusion of warmth.

Sky Lagoon offers guests a restorative seven-step experience, The Ritual, developed from Icelandic traditions of combining warm and cold waters, warm steam, dry heat and fresh air.

Additional facilities include three distinct dining concepts, named Lagoon Bar, Sky Café and Smakk Bar.
