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.

An incredible structure, where cold and winter do not exist. The service is perfect and the place is just fantastic. A must.

We came to blue lagoon straight from the plane.
There were quite a few people but the organisation there is flawless.
You get the lagoon itself and there you seem to be lost in a fantasy world, especially when the night comes.

We were there with our 3 daughters and I would go every day if I could.

Fantastic experience in a high quality environment !

This place is Fantastic really relaxing we had the basic package booked through Tui (we found this to be the best option as it includes the transfers) I really wouldn't bother with the more expensive packages as the experience is in the thermal pool you can sauna anywhere those days and to be honest the extra cash for flip flops and a robe just not worth it!

Seams to be a free for all on the towels don't expect to hand in the one issued to you on entry!

The bracelet system works well it allows access to your lockers and you can charge drinks to it at the bar ( only 3 alcoholic drinks per band ) as you exit you scan the bracelet and pay for any extras that you have purchased and then you scan the turnstiles to exit and place the bracelet in the machine for it to let you out.

We absolutely loved bathing in the milky blue water and if you do one thing on your visit to Iceland it should be this!

The blue lagoon experience is unique, the ticket is a little bit expensive but is worth it. The comfort package was excellent, you don't need anything more. You can have a free drink and a mask. We went at 20:00 and it wasn't crowded.
