I bet you put Blue Lagoon on the head of your travel list to Iceland and I am not surprised at all! It is one of the most popular attractions in the whole country!
Many things had been said about this place along time, but now I want to tell you my personal Blue Lagoon Iceland reviews, if you should visit this place and when is the best time to go!
First of all, I want to tell you that this place is very crowded and the number of tickets is limited so you’d better buy your tickets online at least one month in advance!
There are 3 packages from which you can choose: Comfort, Premium and Luxury.
I chose the Premium Package because it has a pretty decent price for what it offers, so I highly recommend it!
In the price, you have included: entrance to the lagoon, silica mud mask, use of towel, a drink of your choice, the second mask of choice, slippers, bathrobe, table reservation at Lava Restaurant and a glass of sparkling wine if you choose to dine at Lava Restaurant.
At the reception, there are different lines, depending on the package you reserve.
Once you meet the receptionist you will receive a magnetic wristband and everything you buy during your stay at the lagoon will be charged on the wristband and you will have to pay the bill at check-out.
You will then receive your towel, slippers and bathrobe and you are ready to go to the next step.
The first thing you’ll do after you get your towel is to go to changing room, deposit your things in the safe box, get naked and shower.
You are not allowed to enter the lagoon if you don’t wash before!
Once you are ready, the milky-blue water is waiting for you!
Right near the water, there is a bar and in the nearby area there are 3 restaurants, a spa centre, a shop from where you can buy skin products and a luxurious hotel, The Retreat at Blue Lagoon Iceland.
The spa review
This is one of the biggest geothermal pools from Iceland with many buildings around. The inside temperature is pretty high, perfect so you can walk in a swimming suit everywhere.
You can sit down near the rocky walls to rest before you enter the Blue Lagoon.
Once you enter the lagoon, on the right side is the bar from where you can buy drinks and everywhere you look is the lagoon.
From the bar, you can take soft drinks, Prosecco, wine, beer and skyr smoothies. Be careful, because you are allowed to take just 3 alcoholic drinks per wristband.
If you want to take your phone with you in the pool for some amazing photos you can buy a waterproof case from the Blue Lagoon Spa.
On the opposite part of the lagoon, on the left, as you enter, there is the mask bar. Everybody has free access to the mask bar. One silica mark is free. You put the mask on your face and after 10 minutes rinse with water from the lagoon.
Because you bought the Premium Package you have included the second mask, which is algae mask. You put it on your face and take it off after another 10 minutes.
In the enclosure, there is the water massage area and some beautiful bridges. If you go under these bridges you will find a waterfall with hot water, perfect for your neck and shoulders.
There is also a sauna and steam rooms, but if you want to get there you need to get off the lagoon.
Well, this is what the Premium Package offers. Oh! Plus reservation to the Lava restaurant.
Speaking about food, let’s see below Blue Lagoon Iceland reviews about the food.
Lava Restaurant review
If you feel hungry after a relaxing experience at the lagoon you can try the Lagoon Cafe or Lava restaurant.
The Lagoon Cafe offers sandwiches, sushi, drinks and other similar fast food products, while the restaurant is more classy and offer cooked food.
Here we had the best dining experience in Iceland! The restaurant has large glass windows overlooking the lagoon and is decored with Icelandic elements.
And the food is absolutely delicious! You can pick your favourite dish from the a la carte menu or you can choose to eat what offer the set menu from that day.
On average a two courses menu and a glass of Prosecco for two persons is around 49 USD while a three courses menu is 56 USD.
For me, the two courses menu was more than enough. I’ve had an arctic char and a desert and were more than enough for me.
The food was really tasty and the portions were big enough.
Overall it was a really interesting experience and I truly recommend you to try it too!
Most Blue Lagoon Iceland reviews would mention that the place is really crowded and full of tourists but it is for a unique experience which you don’t have to miss!
