Named in 2012 as one of National Geographic's “25 Wonders of the World," Blue Lagoon has evolved from its infancy as a reservoir of geothermal runoff into a world of geothermal wonder. The unique properties of its waters provide not only an...more

The place was above my expectations. I heard that the place is overcrowded and overrated so I went a little bit sceptical. It might have been that we went in January and low season, but I never felt the place was overcrowded, yes it is...More
We were there in early Dec 2018. We arrived at 2pm, glad we bought our tickets before so the queue was shorter. On a very cold and windy day, many tourists were there. Food and drink were pricy inside. The shower rooms were too few...More
A beautiful, albeit artificially heated, lagoon with alleged dermatological healing properties. We thought we might try a geothermally/naturally heated lagoon over the famous Blue Lagoon, but during this time of year (January) it just isn't feasible. Here, you walk straight from the changing rooms into...More
If your visiting Iceland the Blue Lagoon is a must. Like most things in Iceland it’s not cheap, myself and my husband paid around £80 each for the comfort package which is the cheapest admission price you can get. This price includes admission, towel, 1...More
Just spent a few hours here, and loved it. Arrived early in the morning (still dark and snowing!), floating around in the water. Tried the face mask in the morning before heading to Lava restaurant.
Afternoon and more time in the water, sauna, steam room,...More
I booked the blue lagoon for a day trip for my partners birthday. It was amazing. You definitely have to book in advance as it gets very busy (we would recommend going in the morning and staying all day, the morning is less busy) we...More
The transport to and from the blue lagoon is very efficient. We arrived just before 7pm, so it was pretty dark but quiet. Highly recommend people to do this in the evening. Such a magic experience and so relaxing. The cost of drinks about the...More
This is a lovely one off experience. I certainly wouldn't go when it's busy... 3pm on a rainy Fri in Jan it was busy enough. The water is warm, lovely and warm. It's good for photos and unlike anything else I've done. When you realise...More
March and November sounds good. But you can not see the northerlight from blue lagon. I prefer blue lagon in the afternoon befor sunset when the lights is on. I don’t recomend nights as it is too windy and cold.
They actually have glasss stalls and the doors basically close. Just take your towel with suit down to the shower - strip down - rinse off - put the conditioner in your hair and get your suit on. Just be warned that the... More
They actually have glasss stalls and the doors basically close. Just take your towel with suit down to the shower - strip down - rinse off - put the conditioner in your hair and get your suit on. Just be warned that the shower head is above you so 1) Let it run for a sec before you go in and 2) be careful about towel clothing placement as they can get wet from the shower.
I am visiting Iceland at the beginning of January 2018, can someone suggest what time of the day they would recommend going.

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.
