Although expensive like everything in Iceland, the Blue Lagoon experience was well worth it. The place is stunning, and the fact you can drift around the Lagoon sipping a glass of prosecco, admiring the amazing scenery was magical. As the place is so big it didn't seem too crowded, and the fellow tourists were all really friendly. We went for... More

I know you'll see a lot of very positive reviews below, but they come at a hefty price. Although it is man-made pool, it is a beautiful spot to sit, soak up the atmosphere and get some good pics to show off on your social media network, however it is very pricey for what you get. The very basic, just... More

Even after reading a few negative reviews about queuing, pricing etc.I was still so excited to visit the Blue Lagoon and it didn't disappoint! I had bought the Premium package for myself and sister, which includes a free drink, robe, towels, flip flops and it was certainly worth the extra krona. The pool itself is massive, so even though it... More

I booked a ticket because I saw a video in the youtube. I loved it for the first time. Wel. It is good to know it is just close to the capital. The tours are expensive so I recommended to rent a car. The parking is free. It was dark after 5pm in November, so we didn't see to much... More

The Blue Lagoon is a 'must' if you're visiting Iceland. You have to book your tickets in advance and they get snapped up pretty quickly. You are given a time slot and we found out that they can let you in 20mins early in you arrive before your allocated time. It is expensive and a bit touristy but it's definitely... More

The Blue Lagoon is a most unique experience. I have visited other such places such as Cheena Hot Springs in Alaska but nothing quite like the Blue Lagoon. It is just like the pictures but huge. You can't get the scale from the photos on line. You must reserve in advance as they limit how many visitors at a time... More

Weather was very windy and lots of sleet coming down but still an unforgettable experience - don't let bad weather put you off.

Do book in advance. Thankfully children are free as quite pricey like everything in Iceland. Icelanders find it too crowded but once you get into the pool it is so large you don't feel it. My hair's still not back to normal several days later despite putting in the recommended conditioner. Go if you can though just tie up your... More

My two friends and I each got the premium package which was worth the money and then some! We honestly bought that package for the use of a robe, slippers, and towel, but the whole package was the best deal in our opinion. We had lunch at the Lava restaurant and we were seated at the best table in the... More
