During our 25 hour layover in Iceland, we managed a visit to the Blue Lagoon. I booked the Comfort ticket online ahead of time. It was an obvious choice for me, as it included a free drink, towel, and algae mask, for a little bit more than the Standard ticket. If I had been going with my significant other, I probably would have splurged a little more and gone with the Premium or Luxury options, which include extra luxuries like sparkling wine and entrance to the lounge.
There are so many videos you can watch on their website so you can know exactly what to expect from arriving in the parking lot, through the change room, and all the way into the pool. I read online that your hair can get pretty damaged in the mineral water, so I piled on the conditioner they had in change rooms. My hair felt fantastic afterwards! I wanted to purchase their shampoo and conditioner for myself because my hair felt so great.
After getting in, I enjoyed a glass of prosecco in the warm water. There are so many spots throughout the lagoon to find a relatively private place to relax. Currently, they are working on a large expansion so there will be even more room in the near future!
After my included beverage, I used both of the two mud masks, the silica that everyone gets, and the algae I upgraded to. My skin never felt better. You have to get the masks from a booth, just like the drinks. But the best part is you never have to leave the water!
I was too scared to bring my camera in the pool, but I was brave enough to bring my phone. I’m glad I was able to capture the experience. I didn’t buy the skincare at the Blue Lagoon, but I got the pack duty free at Keflavik airport! I did save quite a bit of money purchasing the products this way. A full review on the products will be on the blog soon.
While the Blue Lagoon was expensive (like everything in Iceland), I felt the experience was worth it. Have you ever been to the Blue Lagoon? What did you think?
