What a treat this was! We booked with Blue Lagoon directly online for approximately £60pp. We opted for the Comfort package rather than the Standard package. This included entrance to the Blue Lagoon, Silica Mud Mask, use of towel, 1st drink of your choice at the swim up bar and an Algae Face Mask.
Upon entry you are given an electronic wristband – these control your lockers and are used for any purchases at the Blue Lagoon. Do not lose these as they cost a ridiculous amount to replace! There are also so many changing rooms and lockers so make sure you remember where you keep your belongings.
Blue Lagoon is situated closely to the International airport so a lot of people leave this as their last destination before boarding their planes back home. It is also situated near the Eurasian and North American tectonic plates making it a naturally geothermal pool heated by volcanoes!
As well as there being a swim up bar and great facilities there’s also a steam room and a waterfall to play about it. There’s also a separate section of the lagoon for guests that have paid for the best packages so that they can have in-water massages and water treatments.
Personally, I think that the time we went was the best time to go with all the snow covering the mountainous landscape and the sun shining through the hazy steam from the heated water. We were incredibly lucky. It was truly a perfect setting and a memorable experience shared with loved ones.
One last little thing to mention with the lagoon is that after the masks (which are also available to purchase from the shop and are only made from 3 natural ingredients from the lagoon) your skin will feel amazing! Like literally… like a baby’s butt amazing and so soft! Your hair however might suffer if you don’t use a strong conditioner and leave it in for the duration of your visit. The water is so mineral rich and just does no good for your hair. I have really thick bleached blonde platinum hair… I used so much conditioner and afterwards it was super dry and even changed slightly yellow! It’s a good job that I brought blue shampoo and hair serum with me!
