We visited the Blue Lagoon as part of a trip organised through TUI.
Got to say, it is definitely a must visit place.
When you get through the turnstiles with your tour party you get given a bracelet which enables you to purchase drinks at the pool bar or buy facial treatments at the counter.
The lockers are also operated by the bracelet so all in all a pretty secure way to get around. A lot of information is provided on the bus as you make your way there so do listen up when the tour guide is speaking.
Before you can go into the water outside you have to shower naked. There are both communal showers or cubicles for those who don't want to bare all. Plenty to go around as well even if the place is busy.
Once showered, you can pop your trunks back on and get in the water,
There are 2 ways to enter the water.The sensible option is to get in from inside the building and make your way out through some doors within the water. The other way is to go outside the building and down some steps into what can at times be sub zero temperatures with the wind blowing and snow driving hard ( this is what it was like when we visited). Once in the water that is all forgotten as it is so lovely and warm.
You can make your way around the pool and there is plenty of space for everyone despite the number of visitors. You can try and find a hot spot where the water enters the pool as this is noticeably hotter than elsewhere.
You can pay for facial treatments at a counter in the pool or use the free silicone they provide there.
There is another counter which serves as a bar and you just use your bracelet to add your drinks too. Cider, lager, wine and soft drinks available
There is a watefall where the water pours down with some force and with a noticable sulphur pong as well. It is quite an experience to go under it as it really does smash into you as it falls.
The steam room is just next to this and offers further respite to the gales that were blowing. Was about minus 4 degrees Celsius outside when we visited but the water is around 38 degrees Celsius.
We went here at night and it was a fab experience.
Towels aren't provided with the normal package but we took ones from the hotel. You can get them from here at an extra charge as well as dressing gowns and slippers.
A must do visit when in Iceland.
