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.

This tour was an adventure! Had to just brave the elements. It started raining & got very windy. By the time we got to the Blue Lagoon it was extremely windy & mixed rain with sleet. Got in the lagoon anyway. Glad we did! Had to hold on tight to out drinks but it was great fun.

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.

The blue lagoon is beautiful!! The facility is very clean and well run. The check in process was very fast despite a whole bus load of people coming in at once. The lagoon is so warm and beautiful! Would highly recommend.

Geysers, waterfall & National Park - all amazing. Shops & restaurants good quality. Tour guide was excellent & gave lots of information - he was also very funny with great sense of humour Only annoying thing was we thought we had booked Blue Lagoon as an add on & we hadn't!!

Golden Circle, Blue Lagoon Including Admission & Kerid Volcanic Crater
Christina our tour guide was amazing. This was an experience I will never forget. She surprised us by visiting an ice cream shop and also a farm where we could see horses! She was super informative and tried to help us see the northern lights. Glad we did this and the blue lagoon was so relaxing. My husband had to go to the bathroom and she stopped for him. He also lost his phone on the bus and getting it the next day was such an easy process.

Meradalir Volcano Hike & Blue Lagoon Tour from Reykjavík - Admission Included
Our tour guide was great and the experience was amazing. The hike was only moderately difficult. The average person could do it (in my opinion). The Blue Lagoon was a great way to relax after the hike. We also stopped by Salthusid for lunch and the fish and chips were delicious.

Golden Circle, Blue Lagoon Including Admission & Kerid Volcanic Crater
The trip was great, the host was knowledgeable and friendly. The day was slightly tainted by losing Bruno who failed to follow the clear instructions of when and where our pick up was! This cost us valuable time subsequently and is something to bear in mind. The Blue Lagoon is a perfect way to end the day.

The Blue Lagoon Comfort Package Including Transfers
The most memorable experience was the blue lagoon itself, staff there were very nice and helpful. Loved the mud face pack and drink included in the comfort package. Very relaxing experience. Negative was the coach transfer, we expected to be given some information on what to expect when we got there. We had to find out ourselves and we were not told what time we were to be picked back up.

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.
