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.

Came to check it out very organized few choices of restaurants and a cool swim up bar in the lagoon.
A very popular tourist destination.

We went there in the middle of the day. Warm and cozy. 38 degrees in the water. A large natural pool. Like walking around in warm milk. Shallow water everywhere. The entrance fee was expensive though and a beer in the bar 1200 ISK. But in all - something worth the money.

Don't let the idea that this is a "tourist trap" deter you from going! The blue lagoon was stunning and worth every penny!

We arrived about an hour late due to a flight delay and only waited about 10 minutes to check in. Parking was ample and free. The staff was kind and informative. The locker rooms were very modern and easy to navigate. There were plenty of private shower stalls if the naked in front of strangers thing freaks you out. We did not get the package that included a robe but never felt like we needed it.

The weather when we arrived was about 45 F and overcast with intermittent sprinkles and we felt it did not impact our visit at all. The water is very warm everywhere but if you walk around you'll find definite hot spots to warm you up even more. We got so toasty that the chilly outside air actually felt good!

We went with my 6 year old daughter and she LOVED it! The lagoon is fairly shallow (maybe 4 ft max?) but she felt more comfortable wearing swimmies which were provided free of charge. She got one of the skyr smoothies from the bar and guzzled it! Don't miss the free fresh water drinking fountain under one of the bridges - it's easy for dehydration to sneak up on you! I'd also recommend sunscreen on your face, even is overcast, since my nose wound up getting a little red! I brought my phone in a water proof pouch for some photos and then brought it back up to the lockers for safe keeping. A waterproof camera would work well too.

On your way out make sure you check out the little walking path to your right when exiting the building. There is no swimming in that area but you can get some stunning pictures of the bluest water I've ever seen! There is both a restaurant and a little quick service food area but we did not try either so I can't comment on price/quality.

10/10 do recommend!

The blue lagoon is a nice place to relax. We booked the comfort package. There is a free parking lot with a few minutes walk to the lagoon. The comfort package includes towels. You can change clothes and shower inside the building and store your things in a locker. Then you go outside to the lagoon where you can leave your towel at a towel rail next to the water. The comfort package includes also a free drink at the bar and a "mineral mud mask" in the lagoon. You can stay as long as you want.
