Fodor's Review

This world-renowned therapeutic wonder is now in a sheltered site where man-made structures blend with geologic formations. A reception area includes food concessions and boutiques where you can buy health products made from the lagoon's mineral-rich ingredients. Bathing suits are available to rent, and futuristic bracelets keep track of your locker code, any other purchases, and the length of your visit (all of which no doubt make useful marketing statistics). Buses run

from the BSÍ bus terminal in Reykjavík to the Blue Lagoon twice daily and three times a day in July and August, or you can get to to the airport on your own by taking a special FlyBus.

Blue Lagoon is the hottest hot spring

I went to Iceland in June of 05 and had the most amazing time at the Blue Lagoon. It was definitely the highlight of the trip. It's a huge place with many alcoves and separated pools for a more private feel even though there are usually lots of people there. The food in the restaurant was really great as well. The silica in the water really dried my skin out though (perhaps I stayed in too long!)

If I could give it a 10 I would

NOT TO BE MISSED. Words fail the experience to be soaking in a hot brine a few degrees south of the Arctic Circle at nightime in January in the rain with the outdoor temperature at 38 degrees Farenheit. Both my wife and I, who at times have vastly different ideas of vacation activities found the experience wonderful and when we return, will make a stop here a priority. We just wish the tour had allowed more time to soak.
