Just a 40 minute drive from Reykjavík, the Blue Lagoon is one of Iceland’s top attractions. Located in the middle of a black lava field, the mineral-rich, geothermal seawater comes from holes as deep as 2,000 metres, filling the natural spa with bright blue water.
Known for its healing and well-being qualities, the 37-39°c water is rich in active ingredients including algae, natural minerals and white silica mud. Said to have skin-repairing and antiaging properties, do as the locals do and plaster it over your face and body for a rejuvenating skin tonic.
Holding over 6 million litres of water, there’s plenty of space in the natural spa for enjoying some quiet contemplation, relaxing with a Blue Lagoon cocktail, or indulging in an optional in-water massage.
Our Iceland Specialists can arrange an excursion to the Blue Lagoon with either pick up from your Reykjavík hotel, or as part of your arrival or departure transfer from/to Kefl avík Airport – what better way to sooth and refresh body and soul after your flight.
Please note that the Blue Lagoon will be closed from 5th January until 21st January 2016 for refurbishments. Preparation for the refurbishments will begin in September 2015. Disturbance may be visual as well as noise from the machinery being used, although the Blue Lagoon aim to carry out the work with minimal disruption to guests.
