Blue Lagoon - Review
One of Iceland's top attraction is the Blue Lagoon. A geothermal spa in the fishing town of Grindavik, Blue Lagoon is a man-made wonder. Considered as one of the top spas in the world, you are guaranteed to experience an unforgettable treatment that will rejuvenate your senses completely. This mineral-rich lagoon holds about 9000 million litres of geothermal water, that originates from 2000 metres deep inside the earth. The water is pleasantly warm at temperature between 37 degrees to 39 degrees Celcius, and remains the same throughout the year. Although, the same cannot be told about the air around, so be prepared for frozen hair, if you're brave enough to take a dip in the winters. The milky blue water here is literally miraculous. It is loaded with Silica, algae and minerals and works wonders on your skin. And the best part about this magic water, it is self-cleansing. So you don't need to worry in bathing in somebody else's muck, as the water cleans up itself every 40 hours. With the geological wonder around the lagoon, you can also go explore the lava field itself. And if you're appetite needs to be whetted, gorge on some authentic and traditional gourmet food, in restaurants overlooking the lagoon. Now that is nature at its best for you!

Blue Lagoon, Grindavik Reviews
Fantastic experience. I was very impressed by how well organized it was. The staff were helpful and the whole area clean. I loved that you could put your personal items in a locker. The only criticism is that the food, etc was very expensive. I brought my own sandwich but was not allowed to eat it in the cafe even if I bought a drink. Overall, a wonderful experience and well worth the price.
We landed early in the morning in Iceland and went straight to the Blue Lagoon from the airport. This place is amazing. The well organized system makes the process of registering very prompt despite it being busy. You can hear all languages spoken. We enjoyed our time soaking in and relaxing after our long flight from Vancouver... and especially loved the pool "Bar" where we ordered nicely chilled Prosecco. The baths are hot and the atmosphere is light. It's quite a large area so one never feels crammed. The changing facilities are outstanding and the attached restaurant offers standard Spa fares with prompt service. We truly enjoyed ourselves and recommend it as a must while in Iceland.
If you only have a few days in Iceland and want to experience something other than hiking, then the Blue Lagoon is great for that. It is probably the most "tourist-y" thing to do in Iceland, but it is still a great experience. My father and I left feeling very refreshed and relaxed after our 9 day drive/hike around Iceland. The restaurant and lagoon are both great, but a little pricey in my opinion. I wanted to buy some of their shampoo from the gift shop but couldn't constitute paying 30 US Dollars for a small-medium sized bottle.
One of the most wonderful stops along our tour of Iceland! We saved this for our last day there, to relax and thaw out from the week of extreme cold! Absolutely beautiful! Our time slot was just before sunset, and you can stay as long as you like once you're in. I saw many reviews where people skipped this attraction, but I believe it was well worth it and I would definitely go back. There are other "hot pots" around the island for less, but I enjoyed the included face masks and an included drink. We watched the sunset from the gorgeous blue water with a toast! The robes are worth it, keep an eye on your shoes or take a cheap pair of flip flops for the locker room. There is a before-you-go-in shampoo included. We wore our hair up most of the time and dipped it near the end, then did a rinse in the showers after and it was great!
What a treat! They take hygiene seriously so be ready to shower. The juices at the lagoon bar are tasty. The silica mask can get itchy so if you have sensitive skin, be mindful. The restaurant was nice but I’d pass. It seemed upscale but they allow people to dine in robes. I’d recommend as a first stop after landing, especially if you have a morning arrival since check-in to your accommodation is typically in the afternoon.
