This is one of the most wonderful places I have ever been to. The weather was really cold on that day and windy. From the bus we had to run to the warm reception and I was a bit apprehensive of the whole adventure. However, when we entered the water we could not get out. It was so warm and even hot in places!!! It aslo began snowing so felt a bit unreal. The whole complex is modern and very clean. If I ever go back to Iceland - the Blue Lagoon is on the top of my list to visit again!!!

“Wonderful, relaxed end to a 4 day trip on the way to the airport”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 5, 2012

We did this on the way to the airport and they make it very easy. Somewhere to stow the luggage and a bus picks you up near the entrance to take you to the airport. Beautiful facilities inside - very well appointed as you expect in Iceland. The lagoon itself is great, a wonderful way to while away an hour or two.

“A Battery recharge with a cold beer”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 5, 2012

The last time we visited the Blue lagoon, it didnt have the bar in it, it was nice to stand and have a cold beer while chilling out in those healing waters. We had kids with us this time too, and they loved it. Its alovely experience walking around the lake with the soft squishy silica underfoot.
I trip to Iceland surely isnt complete without a visit here.
Save some time to visit here on your way to the airport, it really relaxes and refreshes for your flight home.

“Sooo relaxing”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 5, 2012

Could not see inside the Blue Lagoon from our hotel, just the steam rising. A wonderful relaxing way to start your stay in Iceland.

“Relaxing and fun trip out with beautiful scenary”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 2, 2012

The Blue Lagoon is a really nice short and easy trip out from Reykjavik. We just booked the trip with the tourist information office and went that afternoon. They pick up from your hotel and its all very well organised. We took our own towels as they charge extra for them there.

The lagoon itself is lovely outside - it had been snowing and the views of the surrounding area just outside the entrance where just amazing. Inside, all is well organised - once you hand in your ticket, you're given a wrist band which acts as your entrance and your locker key.

The lagoon itself is great fun. The wrist band also acts as a payment for drinks (you settle up when you leave) from the swim up bar. Theres 2 saunas, waterfalls, bridges and sections where you can get mud and rub it over your faces.

All in all its a rather unusual and relaxing trip out. We went about 2 in the afternoon so were there for the sunset at 4.30ish. A great afternoon out.
