Blue Lagoon Tours

To understand why Iceland’s Blue Lagoon is so popular with travelers and locals alike, just imagine bathing in steaming milky-blue waters, sipping a cocktail at a swim-up bar, and gazing out over an otherworldly landscape of jagged peaks and black lava fields. This geothermal pool—the most visited of Iceland’s many such oases—boasts mineral-rich waters, a luxurious spa, and a magnificent setting, all just minutes from Reykjavik.

The Basics
A soak in the famous Blue Lagoon is a must for visitors to Reykjavik, and its close proximity to Keflavik Airport makes it a perfect spot to relax and unwind pre- or post-flight. Booking ahead is required, and there are a number of 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 make experiencing the lagoon complex a cinch—most include hotel pickup and roundtrip transport from Reykjavik, and some combine a Blue Lagoon visit with other activities such as a city sightseeing tour, a Golden Circle tour, or a whale-watching cruise.

Things to Know Before You Go
  • The Blue Lagoon can get very busy, so be prepared to wait in line to get in (tours can lessen the wait), and leave plenty of time for your visit.
  • Bring a swimsuit, towel, and flip-flops, or rent them upon arrival. Lockers are provided to store your belongings.
  • The Blue Lagoon is fully wheelchair accessible. Shallow areas and steps are available for children and non-swimmers.
  • Free Wi-Fi is available throughout the site.

How to Get There
The Blue Lagoon is 29 miles (47 kilometers) southwest of Reykjavik, along the Reykjanes Peninsula. It’s about 50 minutes by road; the public bus takes a bit longer. Many visitors choose to visit en route to or from Keflavik International Airport, 14 miles (23 kilometers) north of the Blue Lagoon, or a 20-minute drive.

When to Get There
The Blue Lagoon is open year-round, and the busiest times are from May to September. To avoid the biggest crowds and highest prices, visit outside the peak months of July and August. If you do go in summer, arrive in the early morning, late afternoon, or evening for a somewhat quieter experience.

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—the reason for 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.
