What an incredible experience!! After flying in early early in the morning this was an incredible way to spend a lazy afternoon. My best friend and I spent 3 hours floating and relaxing in the 38 degree Celsius water, just pampering ourselves! We went in early September and arrived at about 2:00pm so although there were people there, it was not terribly busy. We used the silca mask and the lava scrub and felt like a combination of a well done baked potato and a limp noodle when we finally left the water. We then got changed in the dressing rooms, which were well organized and headed for Lava for an incredible meal of beef tenderloin. The entire experience was fantastic! Cant wait to go again!
The Blue Lagoon is on every Iceland vacation destination brochure. It seems to be all the rave. Yet, so many travel bloggers say to skip this spot... But as someone who likes to form my own opinions, we decided to still check it out and my husband and I were not disappointed. If it is your first visit to Rekjavik, you should definitely be a tourist, claim your tourist identity and check out those warm blue waters.
First things first: you must get there. Do NOT attempt to stop by at whim. You must have a pre-confirmed reservation. Enter Viator! You have hotel pickup, tickets to the lagoon, and a guaranteed ride back every hour, on the hour, after 3pm. It gives you standard entry which means you have to add on your own towels if you didn't bring one 700kronas and pay for your mud mask if you want. You will get a wristband upon arrival and that will allow you to purchase what you need or want including drinks from their float-to bar. I would suggest bringing a hairbrush and your own colorful towel so you can locate it. Make a reservation at Lava. Quite lovely!
Enjoy your tourist status at this relaxing spot!
Highly recommended for your first day in Iceland as it really helped us get over jet lag. Very prompt pickup from our lodging and waiting for us when we were through soaking. The Blue Lagoon was very relaxing and something every visitor to Iceland should experience.
Everybody has to do it. You can easily do it on a layover at the airport because it's very near the airport.
Fantastic!!! We were there early on a Sunday morning. Not too busy yet, so it was a good time to be there. Enjoyed every minute of it.
We really enjoyed The Blue Lagoon. We had heard it was a huge tourist attraction and we were afraid that it was going to be just crammed full of people. Luckily we did not feel that way at all. It was windy and rainy and we still enjoyed it. We were there on a Thursday at 2:00 p.m. Would definitely recommend it.
Absolutely brilliant , well worth the time any money. A must do if you visit Reykjavik
Fabulous way to start our day. Very relaxing but a little confusing how to meet in the lagoon. We up-graded to get bathrobes, drink and mud facial.
Highlight of our day in Reykjavik! The bus met us at the cruise ship dock,made a stop or two and then drove us across the volcanic landscape to Blue Lagoon Spa. We upgraded to get a towel, facial mask and drink. The facility was clean. The baths were a great way to spend a couple of hours in hot waters and brisk air.
This was absolutely the highlight of Iceland! AMAZING and very highly recommended.

Beautiful lagoon experience, therapeutic, clean, with helpful and knowledgeable staff - but a little crowded in the ladies locker rooms. Be sure to use some of the free mud to smooth over your face and neck. Book in advance.
The trip was great. Good value for money. Not much more for the transport to and from than it would have been just to get in to the Blue Lagoon. The Blue Lagoon itself is a must see if you go to Iceland.
The tour started on time.
The bus was very comfortable.
We enjoyed the Blue Lagoon.
Amazing!!!! Worth going to. Bring your own towel and do why locals do and just let it hang in the shower. Lol. Book in advance. It gets booked quickly no exceptions.

Must do. If you go all that way and don't do this, you missed out on something very magical and special.
Choose the upgrade when you get there, you'll know what i'm saying when you see it.
Easily the best way to visit the Blue Lagoon, pick up, drop off and entry all included in the price. Worth a visit when you're in Iceland, make sure you book in advance in busy periods, as they do 'cap' the amount of people per hour, which is a good thing when in the lagoon.
This was so relaxing and fun. I know people think its a tourist trap but I found it was worth the money and a lot of fun. The facility was very organized. Bring your towel and flip flops....you really don't have to shower nude to go in. We went on a Thursday morning and it wasn't really that crowded. It was a natural hot tub! I highly recommend visiting the Blue Lagoon.
Blue Lagoon is amazing and a truly unique experience. Definitely worth doing and give yourself at least 2-3 hours there as there is a fair bit to do even if you don't book a massage or have a meal at the restaurant.
We had a great day although off to bad start not waking in time for beauty and breakfast. The lagoon is soothing and does crazy things to one's skin, good things. We opted for the upgrade for robe, reserved restaurant time etc and that was adequate we ended up eating at the cafe. Caesar Salads were a little different and not that tasty. Overall the setting and waters are great walking down the corridor of lava rocks was truly memorable. Be sure to gather up your watch and jewelry from your locker and take the flip flops you paid for. The resort should have photographer take pix of us in water as we did not bring out any cameras. Photo and revenue opportunity missed by the resort.
Great trip in a very nice bus. Instructions were clear and everyone was very helpful. Spent 2 hours in the Blue Lagoon!
The Blue Lagoon is all you and #39;ve heard and more. Relaxing and fun! We upgraded to Premium so we could have a bathrobe, towel and slippers. It was definitely worth it.
