Very relaxing Feb 23, 2015
This is a big tourist attraction in Iceland, but worth visiting.

The view and general atmosphere can't be beaten. The pool is lovely and warm, the view around the pool is stunning and it has an almost ethereal feel with all the steam coming off the water.

I've put the cost as avergae because it really does depend what you do while you're here. You can make it a cheap visit or an expensive one. There are lots of optional extras such as meals, drinks and spa treatments.

There are different packages you can get when you enter. You can go for a baswic package that just gets you in there, or add extras such as a robe, drink from the pool bar etc.

You get a wristband upon entry which is your 'money'. They scan it as you spend and you pay on the way out. Great idea! Keeps your money dry.

We really enjoyed our time here.

The Blue Lagoon Aug 13, 2009
Great location to relax and enjoy the warm icelandic waters. I went there on a cold New Years Day 2009 and had a fantastic time, even though it was beginning to rain that day!!! I soon forgot about it as soon as I jump into the lagoon and got lost in the tranquality.....ahhh bliss!!!

Travel Tips:

1. Take lots of shampoo (especially for the females) as once you've got the clay in your hair it's really hard to wash off!!

2. Hang on to your towel

3. Buy a waterproof camera so you can take some great pics...

4. Restuarant inside was rather expensive and the food wasn't that great!

If you are in Iceland, you can't miss the Blue Lagoon. It's man made and it's very touristy but well worth a visit. The entrance fee is Isk 1400,- for Adults (approx. €16) but you can stay as long as you like. The showers have shower gel and conditioner provided and you should definitely use the conditioner to protect your hair from the water. Just apply a thick layer and leave it in.

Also on the premises is a sauna and steam room. The use is included in the entrance fee. If you forgot a towel or bathing suit you can rentthem for a small fee.

As you can imagine, there is not a lot to do once you're in. The water is not very deep, you can pretty much walk everywhere. The water was up to my chest at the deepest point (I am only 5'3"). When you wander around, you'll notice cooler and hotter spots throughout. You will find an area that is boiling hot and you'll also find a spot where the cool water is running into the basin....brrr! There are areas with underwater benches, where you can just hang out and relax. Don't forget to apply some Silica mud to your face, just to look as silly as any other tourist there does ;)
