The Basics

A soak in the famous Blue Lagoon is a must for visitors to Reykjavik. Booking ahead is required, and there are several options and extras to choose from, including towels, bathrobes, spa treatments, and special face masks. On-site facilities include a hotel, restaurant, café, bar, and spa shop.

Tours are the easiest and most convenient way to experience the lagoon complex, as most include hotel pickup and round-trip transport from Reykjavik. Some even combine a Blue Lagoon visit with other activities such as a city sightseeing tour, a Golden Circle tour, or a whale-watching cruise.

Blue Lagoon Admission Including Transfer
We arrive from the airport directly to the Blue Lagoon at 10am. There was no bus pickup, because of the COVID-19, authorities wouldn’t permit the bus going to the airport in July, but Marina Travel arrange a taxi pickup, and it was just perfect !! Arriving early was great and the 2 hours we stayed were enough, then there was the bus to take us to our hotel in Reykjavik. Definitely I recommend this tour

Small-Group Golden Circle & Blue Lagoon Tour Including Admission
Due to covid, the trip was a combination of several trips. We basically had a trip with all the musts of Golden circle including tomato farm lunch plus several small extras and a visit to the Blue Lagoon. 14 hours with a lot of highlights with a great and fun guide, Hjörtur(? I'm not 100% sure of the name.) There was a lot of info, good humor and help during all the 14 hours of the extended trip.

Small Group Active Volcano Hike and Blue Lagoon Day Tour from Reykjavík
The hike up mountain was a challenge. Our group varied in age from 10- 75. Our guide emphasized we shouldl go at our own pace so all felt comfortable. He was enthusiastic and knowledgeable. Although the volcano was not active mother nature was on display everywhere. The Blue Lagoon was relaxing and rejuvenating. A perfect combination.

We just visited Iceland and went on this tour. Our guide, John, was excellent. We stopped at a horse ranch and ate tomato soup which was delicious! The stops were so interesting. We booked the Blue Lagoon and went swimming. I highly recommend this tour!

Golden Circle, Blue Lagoon Including Admission & Kerid Volcanic Crater
We thoroughly enjoyed this tour. Our guide, Christina was not very cheerful, knowledgeable and showed us all the sites as advertised in a very timely manner. We loved the national park Kerid crater, the waterfalls and the blue lagoon. Even though the weather wasn't great, we had a great time. Will highly recommend this tour.

When to Get There

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 explain 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.
