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.

I agree with most of the contributors that it's a lovely experience and a must-do in Iceland. Prepare to spend at least 2 hours in the pool. Don't look at the sand your feet dig into. It's full of hair - pretty gross.

Before our visit, we considered to stay at the Blue Lagoon hotel. Glad we didn't. Firstly it was made to appear really popular from 'reviews', and secondly we didn't see the hotel the entire time we were there. Heard it's 600m away. So unless you are there to help a skin condition, no reason to choose it. Unless you're overflowing with cash, then you may ignore my review.

If you have a car, stay at any hotel in Keflavik for about half the price of the hotel (just hotel, without entrance fees). The Blue Lagoon is a very short drive away.

It is beautiful here but I would suggest you take your own water and snacks as it is very very expensive to buy once inside.

A truly amazing experience - outdoor bathing in freezing tempertures. A bit pricey - towel and bathrobe €15 (remember well where you leave them) - but if you intend to stay several,hours worth it. The facilities are very clean hence the need to for a few rules. Bathing in the warm salt water is relaxing and refreshing but needs to be washed throughly out of hair and swinsuit afterwards.

We booked transport from Reykjavik with net bus. They picked us up and seemed to offer the best value. We arrived at lunchtime and there were on queues. The lagoon is beautiful. We used the silica mud face masks and spent time in the saunas. Fruit smoothies from the swim up bar were the icing on the cake!

A trip to the blue lagoon is a must. The green waters with steam rising from them a truly impressive sight. One piece of advice is to pre-book as saves an hour waiting in the que. You can hire towels and swim suit but much easier to take you own. We spend a great few hours here and would definitely recommend visiting. The silica worked wonders on our skin!
