This definitely doesn’t need a description and is a must-do on any Icelandic vacation!
Since it’s quite close to the airport and a good way to unwind after an action-packed vacation to Iceland, we scheduled this for the very end of our journey.
Here are some highlights from our trip to The Blue Lagoon as well as some things to keep in mind.
Enjoy it nighttime
It’s worthwhile to consider the possibility of staying at the hotel in the lagoon because it offers free access to both the Blue Lagoon and its own private blue lagoon, which is open to hotel guests for longer hours than the public Blue Lagoon.
It definitely makes more financial sense to reserve a stay at the Blue Lagoon hotel once you take into account the costs of other forms of lodging and admission to the Blue Lagoon (if they have availability, of course)
Observe the natural scenery.
If the Northern Lights are visible when you visit, you’ll get a wake-up call. Asking to be added to the list at the front desk may be worthwhile, albeit you may need to move somewhat outside the hotel to avoid the light and take amazing pictures.
Your equipment should be watertight.
This is the place to utilize a waterproof camera (like this one) or a waterproof phone case (like this one)!
It is pointless to bring a DSLR camera or a phone that might be harmed by water if dropped into the Blue Lagoon.
Remember to coat your hair with the conditioner (given at the Blue Lagoon) before entering because silica and hair don’t get along so well despite how excellent it is for the face.
(Not a big deal to me, but Lloyd and Georgia, who skipped the conditioning regimen and later complained about their hair, felt it was really significant)
Get a beverage.
The limit is three alcoholic beverages. Use it carefully! (It is done to prevent you from getting too wasted in the Blue Lagoon, which is quite reasonable.)
