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 Ticket with Optional Transportation
The Blue Lagoon is large enough to not be crowded. You can find your own private niche. You have to do the 3 mask treatment, trust me your face will thank you. We also got reservations at the Lava Restaurant and tried their 30 year anniversary 4 course Lamb meal and it was perfect. Thank you Jakob from Lava Restaurant, it was my husband’s birthday and he got us a great table and a beautiful desert plate with a candle. Highly recommend both Blue Lagoon and Lava Restaurant.

Golden Circle, Volcano Crater & Blue Lagoon Small Group Tour
Really enjoyed this tour. Dave was brilliant: engaging, pleasant and knowledgeable! And ending off the tour with a relaxing soak in the Blue Lagoon was the perfect way to end the day! 11 hours seems long but the time just flew by at each of the stops - but we weren't rushed at all.

Volcano Hike and Blue Lagoon Day Tour from Reykjavík - Admission Included
Our brilliant guide took us to some hot springs and a fish farm, then guided us up above the lava flow. The views were epic. Then we descended to the lava, which was still warm in places. We stopped for very nice fish and chips before heading to the amazing Blue Lagoon for a good 2 hr dip. Well worth it.

The Blue Lagoon Comfort Package Including Transfers
Blue Lagoon is a must trip for everyone. This comfort package wasn't cheap but an experience I will always remember. Relaxing, fun, pampering and definitely a bit magical.

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.

Golden Circle, Blue Lagoon Including Admission & Kerid Volcanic Crater
Great tour with terrific driver/guide. Well paced and we were able to do a few extras as the group was prompt. Had plenty of time to enjoy the Blue Lagoon. The drink and mask package was fun.

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.
