Like an oasis on an alien planet »

This is one of those places that may be on the well tread tourist path, but really is that popular for a reason. There's nowhere else in the world that you can experience something like this.

I was there in March, so it was right at freezing outside. It was such a cool experience to be in the geothermal water while it was so cold out.

They recommend putting conditioner in your hair before you even get in the water and I wish I would've done that. My hair was crispy crunchy from the minerals for days after.

I was in Iceland during like seriously freezing times, and was pretty thrilled with how not crowded The Blue Lagoon was then. It is like going in nature's incredible hot tub (that might sound more underwhelming than it actually is). It's definitely worth checking out. When I was there, there was some sort of deal where you could get there by way of the Flybus for no extra charge, or maybe a minimal extra charge. So look for deals on getting there, coz I'm pretty sure they exist.

I hear it turns into a mad house when there's more tourists, so prepare yourself accordingly.

Geothermal spa for relaxing day away from the city »

4.0 Stars

The Blue Lagoon is a fantastic way to spend your last day in Iceland. It's basically on the way to the airport from Reykjavik, being only a 40 min. drive from the city centre, and a 20 min drive to the airport. Usually you can get a decently priced bus tour there from the city that then continues on to the Airport after you are finished. I found the cheapest one was Netbus which was about 5000 ISK ($40.00 USD).

The Blue Lagoon is this amazing light milky blue colour that seems incredibly surreal. You can laze around in the pool all day, grab silica mud from areas around the lagoon and use it for facials, or get a massage! Their products are great for the skin, and I came back feeling silky smooth! A definite must-see when in Iceland.
