Located just 15 kilometers (10 miles) from Keflavik International Airport, the Blue Lagoon is a therapeutic wonder. It is a wonderful way for alleviating jet lag on your arrival day, yet it is also a relaxing way to bid farewell to Iceland.

The world-renowned Blue Lagoon on Reykjanes Peninsula  is a lake of pleasantly warm, mineral-rich geothermal water in the middle of a black lava field. The high natural levels of silica, algae and minerals give the water its rich blue color. The silica and minerals are the reason for the Blue Lagoon’s healing powers. They help alleviate skin diseases such as psoriasis.

A visit will help you find harmony between body, mind and spirit. You can soak away life’s daily stresses. The modern facilities include saunas, a warm flowing waterfall, and in-water treatments and massages that use natural Blue Lagoon skin care products.  Moreover, the Retreat Spa offers an exclusive 5-hour visit with secluded areas and the Blue Lagoon Ritual of cleansing minerals.

Amenities at the Blue Lagoon

Amenities include an Exclusive Changing Lounge, a snack shop, a boutique shop and conference facilities. Furthermore, the LAVA Restaurant serves fresh Icelandic ingredients prepared by inspired chefs hand-picked from the national culinary team. The Moss Restaurant at the Retreat is a Michelin recommended dining experience that reinvents Icelandic cuisine.

In addition, if you enjoy refreshing nature walks there are easy walking trails on the grounds of the lagoon.  You can enjoy views of the ever-changing lava terrain and waterscapes.

Blue Lagoon is open every day of the year. As Iceland’s most popular attraction it welcomes many visitors each day. It is important to realize that pre-booking is essential to ensure your space. If you arrive without a pre-booked ticket, you are very likely going to miss out on the experience.
