Owner description: 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 enchanting lagoon experience, but also the patented, active ingredients in Blue Lagoon skin care: silica, algae, and minerals. Blue Lagoon is located in a sprawling, 800­ year ­old lava field in the heart of the Reykjanes Peninsula – a UNESCO Geopark. Just 20 minutes from Keflavík International Airport and 50 minutes from Reykjavík, Blue Lagoon is simultaneously remote and easily accessible.

The Blue Lagoon is a lovely way to relax and unwind after a busy trip around iceland. The waters are warm (but not too warm!) although there are warmer spots around the lagoon. There is always a good mix of people coming and going too so relaxing with a drink and peoplewatching is good fun. I'd recommend a healthy dollop of the silica mud too as it makes your skin and hair feel great.

Go at night! The steam rising into the dark air and the glowing water is even more mystical than during daytime.

Double-check that you've secured your locker, properly, though. We met a couple who had their belongings stolen from one--including the man's pants!

I was torn on whether or not to visit the Blue Lagoon, as I'd read mixed reviews. In the end, we decided that we couldn't not go. I'm so very glad we did! Especially since we went after riding horses for a few hours. It's definitely awesome to relax in the hot springs after something physically exerting.
I do think it's overpriced & certainly a tourist trap, but I'd still recommend it. It's beautiful & relaxing & revitalizing. You can easily take the bus to/from there. Bring your own towel to avoid having to pay an absurd 5 euro to rent one there. Save that & buy a beer to sip while enjoying the lagoon!
There are free lockers to store your stuff & blow dryers for afterwards (thank goodness!). You have to take a shower before & want to afterwards, but the showers are at least stalls & not "prison style" for those of us American prudes. :-)

The Blue Lagoon is a natural spa between the airport and Reykjavik. On the day you're leaving, you can get a ticket for a ride to the airport that stops at the Blue Lagoon. Take the trip earlier in the day. Stop and spend a peaceful, relaxing few hours at the Blue Lagoon. Wehn you're finished, take the bus from the Blue Lagoon to the airport and be relaxed for your flight home.
Note: You can take a floating water massage. You're on a float in the water and get this unique, amazingly relaxing massage in the water. Book in advance since it's often booked for the time period you will want if you're at the Blue Lagoon on your way to the airport. If you like massage, you will enjoy this. Treat yourself.

Blue lagoon is basically a rock pool fed by hot springs with silica mud tubs, steam rooms and sauna around. It looks very posh and is a really enjoyable experience, but at a cost of around £35 for entry is a little steep - they don't even have the cost of heating the pool!
You can go straight from the airport en-route to Reyjkavik and there are lockers to leave your luggage and separate secure changing lockers. Very high tech with a magnetic wristband you use to pay for drinks etc purchaed in the pool. Towels and robes are available (for hire) - it has a very James Bondy feel. We went late afternoon in February and it wasn't particularly busy from the look of the car park - hate to think what it would be like if the car park was full though!
