We are going to Iceland in January and have a 3:30pm return flight at KEF airport. We would have to be at the bus stop near the hotel for 7:30am pickup and would arrive at the lagoon by 9am. We would have until 11:30 to spend there before having to get changed quickly and take the 12pm bus to the airport….2.5hr there would be OK I think, depending on queue wait times.
I am sitting on the fence regarding booking the Lagoon. I know that many people rave about it, but on the flip side some say it is an over-rated tourist trap. I fear feeling rushed at what is supposed to be a relaxing place and paying more than $350 for my husband and I to go. And since it will not be getting light until around 10:30am, much of the time will be in the dark. On top of it, I have a feeling the cranes/construction will detract a little bit from the experience.
Sorry for the long post - any thoughts? Especially regarding the time? Thanks! :)
