About Blue Lagoon, Grindavik
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
Brilliant experience. Water is very warm. Buy phone cases before you go. I would only get the cheapest package and take your own towels (use hotel towels). Do not think the other packages are necessarily better value for money. The locker system and payment system works on a electronic wrist band which is very useful. Best times to go are in the day, we went before sunset and stayed until it got dark, was fun to see the two experiences. Daytime is better in my view as you get the views of the mountains. The Lava restaurant is good too.
Loved our experience here. Is it expensive? Yes, but I think it was worth it. Locker rooms were nice and clean and huge, and the actual lagoon was an awesome experience. We didn't find it too crowded and there was room to spread out. You can also spend as much time as you want, which is great. Definitely bring a towel if you didn't reserve one. A bathrobe is also a good idea.
We debated whether to do this activity and I’m glad we did, despite the cost. We got the basic/standard package (we decided we didn’t need a drink and robe), and honestly it was kind of like taking a bath with a bunch of strangers. The lagoon was beautiful and blue, deliciously warm, the silica mask was a nice touch and the lockers were very secure. I’d recommend taking a waterproof camera or put your phone in a waterproof case/sealed bag. And book in advance. We booked the week before we went and had limited time spots available. We ended up going before sunset and it was lovely. Although, I’m sure any time of day would be great. I mean, it’s the blue lagoon you guys.
his is the second time I have rented from LOTUS in Iceland and I was just as pleased as the first. I rented a Kia Soul with built in GPS Navigation which was a nice bonus! The car was clean, well maintained and met all of our expectations. It had studded winter tires which came in handy during the extreme weather we encountered. They also give you discount coupons with N1 stations in Iceland which is nice with the high price of gas there. I would definitely rent from LOTUS again if I return to Iceland as they either met or exceeded all of my expectations.
Amazing place. Full of positive energy. Its a bit costly for Slovakian travelers, buy worth any pence. The changing rooms are clean and discreet. Customer care is at the best. And the water? Wow! Love the temperature, the amazing smell and the location. I will be back :)
