The Blue Lagoon is located about 40 minutes outside of Reykjavik and is easily accessible via car or bus. Tickets cost about $50 per person, which includes access to the lagoon, a robe and slippers, one free drink, and one free facial mask. Buses out to the Blue Lagoon were also about $40 per person, so it adds up to a pretty expensive experience.
We happened to go to the Blue Lagoon on a rainy, cold Iceland summer day and were a bit skeptical that it would still be a fun experience. Once we got into the Blue Lagoon’s magical blue waters, though, we ended up forgetting about the rain that was pouring down around us (especially once we got some drink in our hands). Safe to say, it was well worth the money.
The facilities surrounding the Blue Lagoon are stunning and help make the experience feel even more luxurious. The beautiful locker rooms had lockers to store your things and showers to use before and after going into the Lagoon.
We visited the Blue Lagoon in 2021 while COVID was still active around the world (and still is), and there weren’t any noticeable COVID-safe policies at the Blue Lagoon’s facilities. Employees were wearing face masks, but there was no face mask or social distancing requirements to abide by. Despite that, however, we felt completely safe there knowing that everyone who was there was tested for COVID before entering the country and many were vaccinated, so the chances of catching COVID there were very low.
