Thoughts on the Blue Lagoon

Jump to last reply

We will be in Reykjavik for 5 nights at teh end of July. We plan to take a series of Day tours (including a flight to Greenland) rather than renting a car. One attraction simply does not capture our enthusiasm-the Blue Lagoon. I understand that it is a man-made creation and that water from a nearby geo -thermal plant has been piped into an old lava field to create the lagoon. Reviews on the "other" website have been variable of late. They refer to long queues, disorganization and disturbing "finds" at the bottom of the lagoon. As to the properties of the mud, I am sure it is very nice on the skin, but we have already had complete mud experiences on both the Jordanian and Israeli sides of the Dead Sea.

The Blue Lagoon sounds like a spa-like Disneyland tourist trap. I think we would prefer something more natural and authentic. Are theri other options? Are we crazy to skip the Blue Lagoon?
