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.

Golden Circle, Kerid Volcanic Crater, and Blue Lagoon Day Trip from Reykjavik
I haven’t had the best experience with these tours, but with that said, The driver/guide was great. He was funny, professional and gave lots of important information. The weather was terrible but still worth the trouble to see the sights especially the blue lagoon spa

Good Idea but weather dependent

Active Volcano Hike and Blue Lagoon Day Tour from Reykjavík
So 1st thing— the tour guide Simon was excellent! Can’t say enough good about him. The tour itself is a good plan but be warned the volcano view is highly dependent on weather conditions. It rained for us and we saw nothing. Walked ALOT and saw nothing but fog… the blue lagoon was great and well organized. Also tour doesn’t end until about 18:30 so keep in mind when planning.

Blue Lagoon and Gullfoss were definitely the highlights of the experience. The walk through the European - North American plate movement was a unique experience!

Iceland is a country of extremes and this tour highlights some of the most beautiful and stunning natural wonders. From breathtaking waterfalls, to the Icelandic horses, to the crater and the Blue Lagoon experience, its an unforgettable day! David, the driver/guide of our group was informative and funny, and made the whole tour very enjoyable!

A good way to spend your final day but a bit short

Reykjanes Geopark small-group tour & optional Airport or Blue Lagoon drop-off
It was a nice way to get in another activity before our flight and guarantee transport to the airport. I'm not sure if it is just because of the poor weather but we went through the locations quickly and the entire excursion was about an hour shorter than expected.

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.
