Blue Lagoon Tickets

The Blue Lagoon is no ordinary dip. The mixture of freshwater and seawater and the active ingredients of silica, minerals and algae all harmonise in these geothermal baths, creating the healing elements that bring thousands of visitors to its shallows each year. Kitted out with bars and restaurants, hot pots, saunas and even a sizzling waterfall, the Blue Lagoon discretely interweaves modern luxuries with the heavenly hot springs it’s known for. At its core, the allure of Iceland’s Blue Lagoon lies in its breathtaking natural setting. Encircled by lava rocks, black-sand beaches and misty mountains, this wondrous aqua spa cleanses and soothes visitors from the inside, out. Submerge in this lagoon’s fine, milky waters and you’ll emerge as smooth as silk. Bid goodbye to spas, one visit to this ethereal Icelandic spring will spoil bath time for life.

Our tips for Blue Lagoon

  • Get ahead of the pack. Crowds flock to Iceland’s most popular tourist attraction so be sure to pre-book your Blue Lagoon tickets well in advance to gain easy, skip-the-line access to the site.

Good to know

Best time to visit
The Blue Lagoon is open year-round from 9am until 8pm most days. With Iceland’s tumultuous and dark winters, these pools are best experienced in the warmer months. Crowds at this hotspot peak in summer, so opt for a more serene experience and take your Blue Lagoon tours during the months of May and September. Early mornings and late afternoons offer quiet and calm surroundings at the lagoon.
Getting there
The Blue Lagoon sits around 50 kilometres outside of Reykjavik’s city centre, and can be reached by car or bus in about 45 minutes. The shuttle bus service running to and from the close-by Leifur Eiriksson airport makes this an ideal starting point for Blue Lagoon tours. Bus services will drop you right outside the Lagoon’s entrance, and are relatively cheap when purchased in advance.
Money saving tips
The best way to save at this majestic site is by booking Blue Lagoon tickets well in advance, ideally during the winter off-season. Our number one tip for those counting their pennies? BYO towel - it costs if you forget this poolside necessity. Extra bathing suits and robes will also set your budget back.
