The Basics

A soak in the famous Blue Lagoon is a must for visitors to Reykjavik, and its close proximity to Keflavik International Airport makes it a perfect spot to relax and unwind pre- or post-flight. Booking ahead is required, and there are a number of options and extras to choose from, including towels, bathrobes, spa treatments, and special face masks. On-site facilities include a hotel, restaurant, cafe, bar, and spa shop. Tours make experiencing the lagoon complex a cinch, as most include hotel pickup and round-trip transport from Reykjavik, and some combine a Blue Lagoon visit with other activities such as a city sightseeing tour, a Golden Circle tour, or a whale-watching cruise.

Fun full day excursion. We had the best tour guide, Addi. He let us stop to see some sweet Icelandic horses, and took us to see an additional waterfall not on the itinerary. Such a good day!

Amazing tour guide! David made the experience so memorable. He made a few stops along the way to show us the beauty of Iceland and also was willing to take pictures whenever we needed to capture a moment. I would highly recommend this day trip, as you'll get much more out of this than you think!

When to Get There

The Blue Lagoon is open year-round, and the busiest times are from May to September. To avoid the biggest crowds and highest prices, visit outside the peak months of July and August. If you do go in summer, arrive in the early morning, late afternoon, or evening for a somewhat quieter experience.

The Healing Powers of the Blue Lagoon

The geothermal waters of the Blue Lagoon are typically heated to between 98°F and 104°F (37°C and 40°C), and are famous for their high levels of silica, algae, and minerals, which make up the reason for the lagoon's cloudy blue appearance. The mineral-rich waters have long been reputed for their healing properties and are reported to help skin conditions including psoriasis and eczema. If you'd like to do more than soak, there is also a sauna, steam room, man-made waterfall, silica mud masks, and in-water massages.
