Book in advance
This is one of Iceland's most popular attractions, after all.
Entrance to the Blue Lagoon requires advance planning, and there are a number of packages to choose from. Standard entry is the simplest and cheapest, typically offering entrance, a locker, and access to the lagoon, saunas, and showers. Alternatively, the comfort package includes a towel, algae mask, and a drink, while the premium package offers all that, plus a bathrobe, flip flops, and a reservation at the LAVA restaurant (food not included).
Hit the showers
Hygiene is paramount at the Blue Lagoon.
All visitors are required to shower without a swimsuit before entering the lagoon, and attendants are on-hand to ensure that the hygiene rules are followed by everyone. Most showers are communal, with separate areas for men and women, but there are also some private shower cubicles. Shampoo, soap, body lotion, and even hair dryers are provided. If you’re worried about the effect of the geothermal waters on your hair, use the special provided conditioner prior to bathing.
Indulge in a spa experience
Treat yo' self.
Silica mud is available to all visitors free of charge, so you can help yourself to a mud mask or full-body cleanse. For an extra indulgence, upgrade to receive an algae mud mask or book an in-water massage.
There's no need to get out for a drink
Yes, there's an on-site swim-up bar.
The lagoon has its own swim-up bar, where you can order everything from a fresh fruit smoothie to a chilled beer or a glass of wine. Drinks are charged to your account (you’ll be issued a wristband on arrival), so there’s no need to carry cash. If you get hungry, there’s also the upscale LAVA restaurant (reservations required) and a café on-site.
Take your time
Make the most of your visit.
You'll need between two to four hours to make the most of your visit to the Blue Lagoon. For the most enjoyable experience, book a tour with round-trip transport from Reykjavik, or combine your visit with pickup or drop-off at the nearby Keflavik International Airport.
