What is the Blue Lagoon?

Imagine walking through a ghostly lava field which better resembles a science-fiction movie-set than anything earthly. The moss-covered, jagged lava creates a moody landscape dotted with mossy greens. Suddenly, you come across a lagoon of milky cyan blue, steaming with naturally heated water, standing defiant and beautiful in the otherwise black barren landscape. Welcome to the Blue Lagoon.

Icelanders have long utilised the geothermal nature of their island for domestic and industrial use. The Blue Lagoon spa was formed in 1976, quite accidentally around the Svartsengi geothermal power-plant. The run-off water from the power plant is sea water, rich in minerals, and as the water ran through the surrounding lava field, it started to deposit silica, forming a mud which effectively plugged the holes in the lava field, creating the lagoon. As the water began to collect, it acquired another of its unique attributes, a particular kind of algae that can sometimes give the water a greenish hue.

By 1981, the first Icelander had braved to bathe in it and not only deemed it pleasant but relieving for his psoriasis.

The lagoon's location next to the airport makes it the perfect stop after arriving or just before departing Iceland, and many airport transfers to Reykjavík, offer a stop at the Blue Lagoon as part of the journey.

If you would rather make a day of it, there are other tours which include a visit to this dream-like place in their itinerary. Why not have a dip in the Blue Lagoon after exploring the famous Golden Circle sightseeing route or after a day of sightseeing in Reykjavík?

Frequently asked questions

Is the Blue Lagoon open during COVID-19?

The Blue Lagoon reopens on February 13, 2021. The Lagoon, Lava Restaurant, and Silica Hotel will reopen for weekends on February 13, 2021. The Retreat Spa and Moss Restaurant will also reopen on February 13, 2021, but will only be operating on Saturdays. The Retreat Hotel is reopening for weekends on March 20, 2021. 

Is the Blue Lagoon safe to visit during COVID-19?

The Blue Lagoon will follow the regulations set in place by the Icelandic health authorities to maximize safety. They recommended you maintain a safe distance between you and people you don’t know and regularly wash your hands. 

When is the best time to visit the Blue Lagoon during COVID-19?

Typically, the lagoon has fewer people in the morning, around 8:00 am. However, there is a limit to how many people can enter, so even if the lagoon is “full,” you will still have plenty of space around you. While there may be fewer people in the morning, many believe the best time to visit is in the evening for a hot soak after a long day of exploring. In the winter months, you may even be able to see the Northern Lights while you soak. 

What is the difference between the Blue Lagoon's entry grades and how much does it cost?

The Comfort Entrance ($53) includes access to the hot spring, a silica mud mask, a drink of your choice, the use of a towel and an algae mask. The Premium Entrance ($68) adds a bathrobe, a pair of slippers, and a reservation at the LAVA Restaurant with a glass of sparkling wine. The Luxury Entrance ($372) adds a private changing room, entrance to the Exclusive Lounge and samples of Blue Lagoon skin care products.

Do I have to book entry to the Blue Lagoon in advance?

Yes, we highly recommend booking entry to the Blue Lagoon in advance as availability can be limited, especially during the high season in the summer and December.
