Keflavik to Blue Lagoon


I've booked a short trip to Iceland from 25th Feb- 1st March. In order maximise time I was thinking about booking on an Iceland Excursion bus that takes me from the airport to the blue lagoon and to the hotel.

But I wonder if I would be cutting it too fine. I land at 16.50 and the bus leaves the airport at 17.30. I don't know the scale of the airport is this too risky? I can't do it the other way around as flight is at 09.00 so it would mean going on one of my three full days there. Noone seems to leave airport later than 17.30.

Sunset is supposed to be at half 6 so I was wondering if it would be a good time to go..dusk/night? Or if I have to go during day can anyone recommend how to spend other half of day ie. any combi tours as I don't want to waste a second!

The airport is compact. 40 minutes should be plenty enough for you to pick up your luggage and catch the bus.

In my opinion The Blue Lagoon experience is even better in the twilight/dark.

You can absolutely make it! The airport is small and easy to navigate and it's only 8 miles from the airport to the Blue Lagoon. Many people we spoke to on tours we're doing to the Lagoon right before their flights and they weren't worried about missing their flights.

I visited the lagoon during the day but can only imagine how awesome it would be in the evening!
