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.

Excellent action packed day
This was an excellent day trip. We saw all the main geological sights and even had extra time to visit the thermally heated greenhouses and a beautiful old historic church, with a live singer; who was our very own knowledgeable guide and driver. The Blue lagoon visit in the evening was the perfect finish to a busy, activity packed day. Thanks for some great Icelandic memories.

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 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.

Meradalir Volcano Hike & Blue Lagoon Tour from Reykjavík - Admission Included
Worth every penny! Brisk morning hike to admire an active volcano and the surrounding breathtaking beauty of the mountains followed shortly by lunch on cool lava amidst little hot pockets of air escaping through firm volcanic rock. The cherry on top was of course the famous blue lagoon. Although quite busy it was everything I imagined and more. The excursion price not only covers admission, 2hr stay but also towels, bathrobes, silica face masks and a free beverage of your choosing.

Golden Circle, Blue Lagoon Including Admission & Kerid Volcanic Crater
We had an amazing day - David our tour guide was hilarious and very knowledgeable. It was a lot to pack in to one day but gave an excellent taste of some of Iceland's key sites. The Blue Lagoon trip was a great end to the day in spite of near hurricane force winds! We had booked this trip as a treat for my husband's 60th birthday and it didn't disappoint.

Golden Circle, Volcano Crater & Blue Lagoon Small Group Tour
The blue lagoon and listening to jocob our guide telling us stories and the history. Only thing we didn’t like was the dark windows in the bus, it really spoils your view.

Golden Circle, Blue Lagoon Including Admission & Kerid Volcanic Crater
The five main visit locations were outstanding with a good balance of walking and sightseeing. The extra visits to the sheep and horse stables, the additional waterfall and seeing the glass houses were bonus stops. What away to finish the day...The Blue Lagoon didn't disappoint, made all the more special by being in the open air in the dark.

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.
