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
Possibly the main reason people go to Iceland and with good reason. The ticket is valid for the day so you can stay for as king as you like. You get given a wristband so can pay for drinks at the swim up bar so you don’t need cash. The staff are friendly and helpful and speak perfect English. The car park is very big so driving there is no problem. When I went the roads were very quiet too. All in all it was a brilliant experience there.
Beautiful place and an amazing experience. The only reason I won't give it 5 stars is because when I went they only had one private changing room which meant i had to wait ages to get change. Obviously if you don't mind changing in front of others this wouldn't be a problem as you can change straight away. The entrance to the pool is right at the exit of the changing rooms which is ideal. The water was beautiful and warm and the atmosphere is so relaxing. Loved the bar that's in the pool, such a great idea and because you have a band purchasing drinks is so simple and easy. The face mask area was awesome and I would love to have bought some of the face mask to take home but it is really pricey. They also have hair dryers, shampoo, body wash and conditioner which is brilliant. It's true what they say though that if you put your hair in the water it gets really dry so do put lots of conditioner in before you go in the water! Such an amazing experience and must do for when you visit Iceland. Oh and also there is no time limit for staying in the pool so you aren't rushed or clocking watching.
I went here around 11 am. It was a little busy but not too bad. I got the comfort package with the towel and a free drink. I wish they had towels in the changing rooms. My towel was knocked on the floor by someone and so it was soaking wet before I used it to dry off. There was staff around but they would pick up the dirty towels and leave. I didn't want to run around trying to find them to get a different towel. I wish they would also play some relaxing music while you are out in the lagoon. That would make it feel more like a spa verses a over sized hot tub. I did feel it was a little over priced for the experience, but also feel you should go once in your life.
Be careful of hot spots! The water does get SUPER hot in places. It's one of those places that you kind of have to visit if you're in Iceland. Very picturesque with the blue water surrounded by lava flows. I don't know about the supposed medicinal properties and all that, but it's a fun natural hot tub.
A highlight of my trip to Iceland. Lots of visitors but well organized. I think the Comfort package was sufficient and includes a towel, one drink at the swim up bar, silica facial mask, and unlimited time there. The facilities are clean and there are lots of staff around to help. The bracelet they provide is very convenient for adding extras. Check out the steam rooms and nooks and crannies for a little privacy. There is a relaxing lounge if you need a break.
