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, Blue Lagoon Including Admission & Kerid Volcanic Crater
The tour bus operator was punctual, kind, and shared a wealth of interesting cultural and historical information about Iceland and the Icelandic people. The shuttle itself was very clean and comfortable. To end at the Blue Lagoon was a high note.

Golden Circle Day Tour Including Blue Lagoon Admission from Reykjavik
Blue Lagoon is a must see. Iceland is beautiful. The people are welcoming and our guide was friendly. Only I didn’t like was all the buses. This trip had us on 4 different buses and doing the “milk run” 3 times. I feel like this was left out of the description.

Golden Circle, Kerid Volcanic Crater, and Blue Lagoon Day Trip from Reykjavik
A windy and rainy day, with a lot of sightseeing. Beautiful waterfall and speciel to see the Kerid crater. Wouldn’t have missed the crater. The Blue lagoon were stormy and rainy, but okay. The bus isn’t made for wet clothes and people who is 1.92 cm High. Because off the Wind it felt a bit scary driving around…. As if timetable were more important, than safety…

Golden Circle and The Blue lagoon Private Day Tour from Reykjavik
We had an amazing day with our tour guide, Magnus. He told us all kind of interesting stories about the area, brought us to all the spots in the Golden Circle with time to spare, dropped us off at the Blue Lagoon right on time and brought us back to our ship right afterwards. We couldn’t ask for a better guide!

Active Volcano Hike and Blue Lagoon Day Tour from Reykjavík - Admission Included
The walk up the volcano had amazing views, while exhausting it was completely worth the work. The blue lagoon was the perfect pairing to sooth our sore muscles. The experience was 10 out of 10!

Golden Circle, Blue Lagoon Including Admission & Kerid Volcanic Crater
Christina, our tour guide was great. She led us on our journey around the Golden Circle and put us in position to experience each stop at its best. For instance, she told us where to stand to see close up (within 15ft) the geyser erupt. Her commentary throughout the day combined Icelandic history with her day to day experiences. And we finished our tour at the Blue Lagoon, a perfect ending to an eventful day.

Blue Lagoon with transfer
As always Viator did a perfect job planning the transfers to Blue Lagoon to fit my schedule. Everything was on time. I’m so glad I did not miss Blue Lagoon. The tour I was on did not include this site. Viator worked with me to arrange it in our free time. They were able to make changes 24 hours ahead even though this is a very popular site.

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.
