Read what other Viator.com travelers think about the Blue Lagoon Spa Roundtrip Transport from Reykjavik. What they loved, what they liked and what they think could be improved, it's all here to help you make the most of your next trip.
I had been to the Blue Lagoon before but usually on the way to the airport. This time I went to Reykjavik a day early so I could spend a leisurely day at the Blue Lagoon and come back to Reykjavik before going on a tour of North Iceland.
The coach picks you up at your hotel and takes you to the central bus station where, unfortunately, you have to get off and queue up to get a ticket for the Blue Lagoon coach. This isn't so bad if you don't have luggage but is a real nuisance if you do.
On arrival at the Blue Lagoon you queue up again to pay your entrance fee plus extra to rent a bathrobe, towel, swimsuit and flipflops if you don't bring your own. You can save a lot of money by bringing your own or doing without the bathrobe and flipflops. You get a wristband with a microchip in which locks your locker when you've changed and put your clothes in. If you want drinks or ice-creams at the pool bar they get charged to your microchip and you pay on the way out. After gettting changed into a swimsuit you then have to take it off again and shower with soap before getting into the pool as pools in Iceland aren't chlorinated.
I spent about an hour trying the various pools in the lagoon, including the very strong waterfall that's good for back pain. It is very powerful so be warned. Then I had a massage which they do on a pontoon in a special area at the end of the lagoon. They cover you with wet towels and keeping tipping you up to warm the towels (the water's heated to 37-42 degrees). After that I had a facial. Last time the facials were in a room near the relaxing area by the pool but now you have to go through the shop to get to them so it's as well to have a bathrobe and flipflops. You have to go back to reception to be guided to where the facials are. The massage and facial have to be pre-booked.
After you've changed you pay your bill and either eat in the restaurant or go out through the shop to the coach.
Wonderous! Very relaxing and just so good. You gotta do this!
Everything went smoothly - from pick up at our hotel with all our luggage to enjoying the Blue Lagoon for the day. The Blue Lagoon is an experience not to miss! So relaxing and enjoyable. Then it was off to the airport for our 6 hr. flight home. Would highly recommend.
The trip was excellent. The bus was comfortable, on time and very easy.
fantastic trip, will be going back, there is much more to see and do in Iceland apart from chasing the northern lights
This was sreal, in the warm while it was raining, so different, one to tick off the bucket list.
This experience was one of the highlights of the trip. It was relaxing and most enjoyable. I would recommend to anyone going to Iceland to make this a priority stop!
A fantastic experience. We booked ahead for entrance, robe, towel and drink-well worth it. Recommend the early start- we were the 1st ones in!
Awesome! Efficient and easy pick up! Unlimited time to spend at the spa! Secure lockers to store belongings. We had a great time!
Well worth the money. Awesome, exciting ! Will do it again. The restaurant/ food is 4 star. Must order the langoustine soup...to die for!
Great place, very surreal sat in a giant hot bath with steam rising around you while it's 0 degrees!! Be aware of prices though, basic admission - take your own towel, if you forget it next price is 65 euros for towel. bath robe and a few extras! Oh, and my husband says watch out for the uneven floor and steps you can't see under the water - he found them all!
This place is everything that you hope it will be, but so much more.
We did this as our last stop before the airport, and I AM SO THANKFUL we chose to wait!
After non-stop tours, horse back riding, and extensive walking, our bodies were ready to relax and take in all of the benefits of the lagoon.
We picked up our robes and towel, hit the showers, then went straight to the water.
We got there pretty early, so we were able to enjoy the peacefulness of only about 20 or so people.. And really enjoy our quiet time together.
By 10:30, the place was swarming! But it was quite foggy so the crowds didn't really matter.
We enjoyed our silica layering, volcano scrub, and algae mask.. However, the waterfall was absolutely amazing.
Completely massaged all of the knots from carrying backpacks for the duration of the trip. I could have stayed there for hours.
Once we were finished bathing, we had lunch at the Lava Restaurant. A little slow on the service, but they made up for it in presentation and deliciousness!
Truly a perfect way to end our time in Iceland.
The Blue Lagoon is just an amazing place. Much bigger than we had expected. The hot salt water is quite the experience. There is plenty to do with saunas, steam rooms, waterfalls, facials, restaurant etc. The staff are very friendly and helpful too. You can get towels, robes and swimwear if needed. Make sure you have a drink of water every now and again. Oh, and take some flip flops for outside the pool. The water might be warm, but the floor is freezing! We definitely will be visiting again.
