The Basics

A soak in the famous Blue Lagoon is a must for visitors to Reykjavik. Booking ahead is required, and there are several options and extras to choose from, including towels, bathrobes, spa treatments, and special face masks. On-site facilities include a hotel, restaurant, café, bar, and spa shop.

Tours are the easiest and most convenient way to experience the lagoon complex, as most include hotel pickup and round-trip transport from Reykjavik. Some even combine a Blue Lagoon visit with other activities such as a city sightseeing tour, a Golden Circle tour, or a whale-watching cruise.

Golden Circle, Blue Lagoon Including Admission & Kerid Volcanic Crater
The tour bus operator was punctual, kind, and shared a wealth of interesting cultural and historical information about Iceland and the Icelandic people. The shuttle itself was very clean and comfortable. To end at the Blue Lagoon was a high note.

Golden Circle, Kerid Volcanic Crater, and Blue Lagoon Day Trip from Reykjavik
A windy and rainy day, with a lot of sightseeing. Beautiful waterfall and speciel to see the Kerid crater. Wouldn’t have missed the crater. The Blue lagoon were stormy and rainy, but okay. The bus isn’t made for wet clothes and people who is 1.92 cm High. Because off the Wind it felt a bit scary driving around…. As if timetable were more important, than safety…

Blue Lagoon Admission Including Transfer
We were picked up from our hotel in a minibus, and then dropped at a bus depo where a large coach takes you to Blue Lagoon. The lagoon itself was fantastic, with a free face mask and drink of choice (raspberry slushies for us!). Water is very warm, a brilliant contrast to the cool air, and you don't need to worry if its raining, it adds to the fun! We had 3 hours there before being returned to our hotel, and found that was the perfect amount of time to spend at the Blue Lagoon!

Relaxing Morning at Blue Lagoon

Blue Lagoon with transfer
A reinvigorating morning spent relaxing at Blue Lagoon. The Premium package was well worth the added items (robe, three masks and a beverage). I highly recommend this. The transfers to and from were also quite convenient. Allot an additional 45-60 minutes to and from.

Blue Lagoon
This is my second time in Iceland the first adventure I wanted to repeat was The Blue Lagoon! This is the perfect way to get over jet lag while waiting for your hotel/Air BNB to be available. We arrived into Reykjavik at 6 AM, booked Blue Lagoon at 10 am, and it was the perfect antidote to jet on Reykjavik time! Food was fantastic in the restaurant. Be sure to bring flip flops and do get the cheapest booking. The terry cloth robe as worth every extra penny!

The Healing Powers of the Blue Lagoon

The geothermal waters of the Blue Lagoon are typically heated to between 98°F and 104°F (37°C and 40°C), and are famous for their high levels of silica, algae, and minerals, which explain the lagoon's cloudy blue appearance. The mineral-rich waters have long been reputed for their healing properties and are reported to help skin conditions including psoriasis and eczema. If you'd like to do more than soak, there is also a sauna, steam room, man-made waterfall, silica mud masks, and in-water massages.
