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.

Cant really avoid going to the blue lagoon if you are in Iceland. But it was busy but not crowded in the lagoon, busy and crowded in the changing rooms, expensive, but I am happy to say that I have ticked it off my list!

This is place you must visit, even though it is a bit overpriced, it is a wonderful place to visit then, get on you plane home as its only about 20 mins to the airport. The water is hot and even though when we went it was busy, we still found a quiet spot to relax. After a nice refreshing beer, we headed for the waterfall where the hot water pummelled our neck and shoulders. After another half hour soak we headed back to the changing rooms. With the chipped bracelets it was easy to pay for anything, and get into your lockers. Yes, you have to change in front of everybody, but just go with the flow and dont worry about it. The changing rooms have everything you need and are better equipped than some 5 star hotels I've stayed at. If you can do not miss this, well worth its inclusion of the one of the 25 wonders of the world

We visited the Blue Lagoon on our way out of Iceland and enjoyed a bit of relaxation before boarding the plane to head home. We purchased the mid-level package which included admission, a robe, drink and face mask or face scrub. The water was a very nice temperature and it was cold and drizzly outside so it made it that much more enjoyable. The technology they use with their chipped bracelets make this a very easy way to enjoy the pool and not worry about keeping track of keys and knowing that your luggage was secure.

It can be a little funky if you think about what all is in the water (with the face masks and scrubs and all) but just find a quiet place and don't think about it :)

Recently visited Iceland. Had to go to the Blue Lagoon! Its the main tourist attraction on the island and its worth it....
It fools you though as your drive in its direction as it looks like a factory from a distance. The steam from the pools fill into the air and you can see that from the main road heading towards to airport.
We booked before we went and had the package that included towels and robe and flipflops and dinner in the Lava Restaurant.
The water is wonderful. Its a silky icy blue, looking like milk and is so warm. There is a bar in the water and you can hang your robes by the pool etc.
We stayed nearly all day, from 11am till well after 3pm.

One word though.
If you go early you may find lots of people there. If you have hired towels and robes and flps flops, don't be surprised that they go walk about with other punters. This really is only the biggest downfall of the place. You pay money for something that if left unattented will be used by others. Tourists!!!! My advice is to leave your towels in your lockers. If you can take your robe to an area that you are close to, otherwise it will go off with someone else! If that happens do as the others do and to the same! Not nice though if you have to get hold of someone else robe as it might be wet! Never mind.

The Lava Restaurant: Could be better but is was nice and the food not too bad.

I will go back!

It may be touristic, but the Blue Lagoon is that way for a reason. Don't miss going there for any reason. It was definitely a highlight of our 10-day Iceland trip. And, I'd readily go again.
