No Iceland holiday would be complete without a visit to the stunning Blue Lagoon; The Blue Lagoon is the most well-known of all Iceland’s Geothermal hot-springs, and as such it attracts thousands of visitors a year…and for good reason! The Blue Lagoon gets its name from the stunning blue colour of the water, but it is not just the colour that makes the Blue Lagoon so popular; the geothermal water possess rich mineral properties making it a great help in healing many skin issues like eczema and the silica mud face masks do wonders for your skin.
A visit to the Blue Lagoon makes for a great day trip from your hotel in Reykjavík; The Blue Lagoon is only a short 30-40 minute drive from Iceland’s capital city, meaning it can easily be visited if you are staying in Reykjavík on your Iceland holiday. You can drive yourself to the Blue Lagoon, or alternatively you can book onto an organised tour (which we can arrange) before you begin your Iceland holiday. To visit The Blue Lagoon on a day trip, you do need to reserve your spot and children under 2 are not allowed to enter. This is why we highly recommend planning your trip to the Blue lagoon in advance, whether you are going to go with a pre-booked tour or drive yourself in a hire car.
There is a second option to experience The Blue Lagoon, and though pricy, we highly recommend it; this is to stay at The Retreat at the Blue Lagoon - The Blue Lagoon’s own 5* hotel. The Retreat at the Blue Lagoon is Iceland’s answer to a luxury wellness retreat as it offers guests the chance to experience a Michelin-recommended restaurant, a subterranean spa, access to the Blue Lagoon, Blue Lagoon and moss view rooms, and more! This hotel really is the epitome of Icelandic luxury and not only does it provide excellent accommodations for the Blue Lagoon, but between the months of October and March you will also treated to amazing views of the Northern Lights high above you as you relax in the azure blue geothermal waters.
Many guests choose to stay at The Retreat at the Blue Lagoon for 1 or 2 nights, and then spend the rest of their holiday in Iceland at a hotel in Reykjavík, such as the Hilton Reykjavik Nordica.
