Attraction details
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 amazingly picturesque and so relaxing. It is so easy to sit in here and let time pass without a care. Well worth the 40 minute drive from Reykjavik :)

This is pretty much a standard suggestion when going to Iceland. it's one of the things the island is known for. You can eat lunch at Lava, which was pretty inexpensive for a la carte. The main attraction of course is the blue lagoon itself. Definitely take the time to soak in the lagoon and float around! There are certain areas that are warmer than the others, check the map on the wall before you head out. Most hotels can arrange this for you, and if you are adventurous, try to schedule the spa before you fly out, just make sure you have time to get to the airport!

Be very careful when communicating with the Spa regarding money conversions. A group of us were overcharged and signed our bills to get to the airport because they kept trying to "explain" what the charges were for. When we got back to the US, I rechecked my correspondences and seeing we were overcharged, tried to settle via e mail with the Spa Manager to no avail. Bottom line, I found out when filing my claim with my credit card company is if you are in that situation, don't sign the bill. It is hard to reclaim money after signing receipt, and, so I could not. Otherwise, they were not a good value all around , They were not very friendly or helpful. Also, they did not have some of the spa supplies we reserved to have used as part of our treatments and did nothing to compensate. The "Executive Lounge" is grossly overpriced. The whole place is not worth the price.

We booked this tour for our last day and for our way to the airport, to have last relaxing experience before we borded busy airoplane :) and would recommend to do the same.
The place is just stunning, a little bit expensive but what isn't in Iceland? You will have an amazing swimm (six million liters of geothermal seawater) in temperature of 37-39°C / 98-102°F. Its a place you'll never forget. Enjoy!

We went to the Blue Lagoon as part of a horseback riding trip with Eldhestar. After a long rainy day of riding, it was very pleasant to relax in the warm water. We gravitated toward the warmest spots because the rain water had diluted the heat a bit, but by the time we arrived the sky was blue and the scene was beautiful. I was skeptical about the benefits to the skin of the silica mud, but it did make my pores less visible and the effect lasted for several months. It also seemed to clear up some patches of rough skin. Recently I ordered some of their (expensive) products on-line to see if they will provide the same benefits that the Blue Lagoon itself did. We were told that although the water is good for the skin, it really dries out and tangles your hair so you should put on a lot of the free conditioner in the shower before entering the water and then use more afterward. That turned out to be good advice. If you think that you will keep your hair dry, you will have to miss out on standing under the waterfall for a great massage unless you have a bathing cap (and who wears them any more?).
