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.

Fantastic experience
The trip was excellent but what made it fantastic was the driver. His knowledge of Iceland was amazing. I left with a good understanding of everything Iceland related. Highly recommended

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.

Active Volcano Hike and Blue Lagoon Day Tour from Reykjavík
Iceman/Asgeir was an incredible tour guide, super knowledgable and funny - made the day really memorable. The hike was amazing, with the most beautiful view. Walking on the lava fields was so cool! Especially knowing it had erupted only two months ago. Going to the Blue Lagoon afterwards was the perfect treat after the rainy windy hike! But it was was our tour guide who truly made the day for me, the best tour guide I had while I was in Iceland ☺️

Blue Lagoon Ticket with Optional Transportation
The blue lagoon is perfect for the end of the holiday. A great time to relax after all the activities Iceland has to offer. I would recommend going for the premium package, it’s worth every penny. I would also recommend including transportation if you don’t have a hire car as it’s about 45 minutes from the centre of Reykjavik. Ladies with long hair I would tie up as much as possible as the salica can dry it out. If you can’t then lots of conditioner before and after.

Our guide was very informative with just enough dry wit to add even more enjoyment to the day. The sights were all spectacular and ending the day in the Blue Lagoon truly topped it off perfectly. Do yourself a favor and take this tour.

Golden Circle, Blue Lagoon Including Admission & Kerid Volcanic Crater
This tour is a must if you’re on a short break to Iceland. Me and my partner were on a three day trip to Iceland and this tour was perfect- it includes so many sights and stops without feeling rushed. Plenty of time to relax and enjoy the blue lagoon as the last stop as well. Our tour guide, Addi was really knowledgeable, great sense of humour, and made the journey so interesting and fun.

Trip was excellent. Circle, Waterfall,Geyser, volcano and lastly Blue Lagoon were all fantastic sights. Guide David was very good and seemed to know his history and facts regarding the Island and kept us fully informed all day. Long day but well worth it. Thanks Steve Renaud

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.
