This place is so worth a visit - even if, like us, you don't want to actually go in the lagoon it is well worth it. It is possible to walk around the area, visit the gift shop and enjoy light refreshment in the cafeteria...More

The iconic blue lagoon. Lockers and a towel is are provided with basic package. Would recommend bringing an extra towel because by the time you use your towel to and from the pools it is soaked. You need to shower before and after you get...More

The Blue Lagoon is simply one of those places you have to stop while in Iceland. Is it pricier and busier than some other places like it? Yes. But, even if there are more people here in real life than you'll ever notice in pictures...More

Nice retreat when in Reykjavik. Imagine a really really big and hot swimming pool, with beer and mud facial masks - that's the Blue Lagoon for you. We were there in the evening, so we missed the feeling of bathing in turquoise water which apparently...More

I would say everything between 2 to 5 hours, depending on how much time you have. The place is amazing, touristic or not. It is a must see and do and it is very well run.

I am visiting Iceland at the beginning of January 2018, can someone suggest what time of the day they would recommend going.

Response fromKim T|
Usually it's best to visit en route from or to the airport, since the Blue Lagoon is nearby and it would be a waste of time to backtrack on another day just for the Blue Lagoon, especially if you only have limited time in Iceland. Daylight in early January will be roughly between 11.15 am and 3.45 pm, but it is also very nice to visit in darkness. Just make sure to book as early as possible, since it frequently sells out and tickets get more expensive the longer you wait.

I will be travelling to Iceland in January 2019. I am considering visiting the Blue Lagoon and want to know if it is worth it or should I visit the natural baths throughout the country??

Do you think you'll enjoy an outdoor spa experience in the middle of a lava field? If yes, you'll probably enjoy the Blue Lagoon. If you don't care about the milky blue water and don't mind the naked shower requirements at the local pools, then a local pool would be much less expensive and more of a local experience.
