Reykjavik Blue Lagoon Excursion Reviews

With water temperatures averaging 37–39 °C (98–102 °F), Reykjavik's Blue Lagoon geothermal spa makes a great relaxing treat. The steamy volcanic waters are said to have healing properties.

Interesting ride to the remote Blue Lagoon. Looks like travelling across the moon to get there as there is nothing but barren lava rocks. The place is amazing and interesting. The only bad side is my wife and daughter complained about what the minerals did to their hair and weren't happy about that. I'm sure a taxi or Grey Line bus would have been cheaper, but it was fun to be there.

Booked directly with Blue Lagoon and just had to arrange transport in advance. Take a towel from the ship (remember to bring it back).

The ship's tour was only transportation to the Lagoon and back. We purchased tickets online to gain admittance and use the facilities. This saved us a lot of time from standing in line. Expensive ( $170 for the two of us that included towel, robes, algae scrub and drink) but it was a once in a lifetime experience. Really unique.

see the review. we spent several hours in the city after our private Reyjkavik Excursions blue lagoon tour,which included admission and swimming at 30% less than the similiar ship tour and then spent a few hours waling the city center. There is about a 5 square block of shops and cafes. There is no need to take a ship city tour.Took a 8E taxi back to the cruise dock from the cultural center which had no offerings while we were there.

Interesting Blue Lagoon trip.
1) Panoramic Reykjavik trip was uneventful and boring.
2) Akureyri, Iceland was pretty. I caught the flu so I had to cancel the Godafoss Waterfall trip.
3) Trondheim, Norway nothing to see. No excursion.
4) Alesund, Norway would have been pretty if it was not raining. No excursion.
5) Molde, Norway nothing to see. No excursion.
6) Olden, Norway was beautiful and I went on the Scenic Lake Stryn trip which was great.
7) Stavanger, Norway was nothing special. Weather was poor so I did not go on the trip.

There is a Hop on hop off bus in Reykjavik but this is not mentioned until attending a port lecture. The tour to the Blue Lagoon was good. a shuttle bus was provided but $12 per person and as we were there fore two dyas the second day was charged $12 again. Many passengers were able to take two tours as the ship was overnight in Reykjavik. The ship then went on to Aykrueri to visit the waterfalls and very interesting.The third port was Klaksvik in Faroe Islands. We took a tour round the area and through the tunnels. A beautiful day and this island isa deligthfully unspoilt. The next call was at Geiranger Fjord and a breathtaking trip up the Fjord with waterfalls and beautiful scenery. Various trips were available and we decided to take a trip through the mountains to see the views of the Fjord from various points. The next port was Olden - very unspoiled but small but a walk to the village about half a mile was well worth it.

Worth doing as cheaper than the cruise tour and we got there an hour before the other buses and had the lagoon to ourselves.

Bragi took us to the Blue Lagoon on the second day of his tour and we loved it,from the electronic lockers that locked and unlocked with our wrist band that we also used to order a beer from the swim up bar, to the hot blue waters that felt so good after the short walk in the cold air to the huge pool. What an amazing spa!

Expensive, but worth it. Got there right as it was opening, so lines were relatively short. Really liked the electronic bracelets that control the lockers and allow you to charge beverages and stuff while out in the pool. Had a nice soak and did the "mud facial" thing. Totally relaxing!

Absolutely loved this. Blue Lagoon is magical and really was everything I hoped it would be. I only wish we had blue skies that day, it would have been even prettier. It was a "zoo" upon arrival but our tour guide took us around the long lines. "Once again, very confusing to find changing locker and way out to lagoon, but once in Lagoon - heaven! Highly recommend. I do agree if you hear going under the water is not good for your hair, I did it and paid the price. Our tour guide was awesome. Even joined us in the Lagoon. I LOVED the swim up bar.

Took RCI BLue Lagoon tour second day, great, easy, long bus ride, people held us up getting to bus late to return to ship. Blue Lagoon is fun and relaxing, you dont have to get totally naked. Private excursion Golden Circle on Seasons, excellent, exhausting 10 hours we saw everyuthing inc city. Klavsik, Faroes, 2 excursions, the rib boat to see puffins = yes, great! and the hike to see spectacular views- great scramble up a 600m hill. Gorgeous!
