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.

We took a trip here on the way back to the Airport as its only 15 mins from the Airport so I would definitely recommend doing it that way plus its also a nice relaxing end to the trip. It is a beautiful spa in a magical location. There are different packages you can have and we just went for the middle of the road one where you get a drink, face pack and dressing gown and towel. It is expensive but definitely an experience not to be missed.

The blue lagoon is a must do when in Iceland but as with everything in Iceland (minus the parks) it's a bit pricey. If you think you're going to hang your robe up and come back to it you're kidding yourself-seems to be alot folks that choose not to pay for the robe and just borrow yours.. My only true complaint was I wanted to be able to purchase another beer or 2.. I have to say I've experienced anything quite like the place-pretty cool!

Arrived in Iceland on the 31st and went straight to the Blue Lagoon. It's easy to find, but it is not signposted as Blue Lagoon (forgot the name).
It has several prices 35 euro pp upwards. I chose the 60? euro option, and although I didn't use all the services, I still had a great afternoon there.
The staff are friendly - l didn't read the instructions on how to secure the locker, the staff do regular checks and secured it.
The air was very cold, but once you get into the water, you're in heaven... I even applied the silica mud, badly, as did everyone else.
I will go again.

We went on an organised out-of-town excursion arriving as the Blue Lagoon opened and the sun was rising - the snow / lava / weak sunshine and steam off the water made for a very atmospheric setting. After visiting the thermal baths at Laugardals we knew what to expect re. changing facilities - all pretty much state-of-the-art. The team at the Blue Lagoon don't miss a trick and personally welcome you - also offering to take pictures of you in the lagoon and then instantly sending them to your e-mail address. Do make use of the complimentary silica for a face mask and treat yourself to a slush puppy at the swim-up bar. We came out feeling rejuvenated 2hrs later. Expensive - yes, especially when compared with Laugardals. Would I have wanted to miss the experience whilst in Iceland? Definitely not!

once in a lifetime experience, had a great time.
facilities are clean and well maintained
we would have liked to stay longer.. approx 2hrs ( cruise-shore excursion)
you are given a wristband which activates your locker and can be scanned for any purchases
there is a cafe and a gift shop.. a bit pricey.
