Hate to say goodbye so soon to the Blue Lagoon Iceland, but it’s time to wrap things up and conclude my posts on my recent visit to the Blue Lagoon Iceland.  But first I have several images I couldn’t tuck away without sharing first.

Why Blue Lagoon Iceland?

Many places around the world like to advertise that if you don’t like the weather, wait a minute and it will change.  But this is so true if you’re at the Blue Lagoon Iceland.  Even with low lying clouds overhead, the experience is always phenomenal and it never detracts from the view from inside the water. After all, how often can you go out into the water during snow or rain and know that the water you’re stepping into isn’t just hot, but great for your skin?

Wait a few minutes and the sky might clear up and sun will shine down on you, even if only for a moment.

I might be partial to the sunshine while in the Blue Lagoon Iceland, but you can see why.  Every picture comes out looking fantastic with the steam billowing above the blue water.

Once you experience the silica mud mask for yourself, you’ll understand why everyone in the water is smothered with the white stuff.  My skin always feels fantastic after I leave and it doesn’t hurt that I load up on Blue Lagoon Iceland spa products to take home as well.

Lava Rock

While you might become entranced with the blue waters of the Blue Lagoon Iceland, don’t overlook the lava rock that is all around you.  Here you can see a stream of water making its way through the lava rock.  When it collects on the lava rock, it enrobes the rock like soft white chocolate.

IG Special Country Mention of the Day

Are you on Instagram? This pic made the IG Special Country Mention of the Day from ig_iceland today!  So excited to share my picture with so many people and have them enjoy it. I love the contrast of the hard rocks, the soft billowy clouds in the blue sky, and the white silica.

Inside Blue Lagoon Iceland

The long lines at Blue Lagoon Iceland

When you arrive at the Blue Lagoon Iceland, you’ll have to check in at the front desk.  If you’re on a coach, expect long lines especially if you had to drop off your bags at luggage storage.

Be prepared and book in advance if you can to avoid unnecessary queues. I will say that all of the employees at the Blue Lagoon Iceland work extremely fast to get guests checked in quickly so even if there is a queue, you won’t be waiting for long.

Viewing Platform

After you’ve spent time in the water, wander around the building and look for the viewing platform.  I wonder how many people miss out on great views of the property by never venturing off and seeking the two platforms.

Walking to the Viewing Platform

To find them, look for the stairs near the Blue Café, turn left at the top of the stairs, and proceed down the hallway until you arrive at the first platform.  If you continue down that hallway and pass through a set of doors leading outside, you’ll find the second platform.

The View from the Viewing Platform

If you’re wondering why you’d want to go outside to the viewing platforms, these pictures as well as the first picture at the top of the post should explain why you wouldn’t want to miss it.

One last look before I leave Blue Lagoon Iceland

There are many places to visit in Iceland, but the Blue Lagoon Iceland is probably one of the most famous. Regardless of what I do on each of my visits to Iceland, I always like to wind down my stay and wrap up my adventures with a trip here.  While there are many geothermal pools in Iceland, the Blue Lagoon Iceland can whet your appetite and serve as an introduction to understanding the concept of geothermal pools and spas.  The Blue Lagoon Iceland has positioned itself as a must-see destination for tourists before departing Iceland and for me, I can’t imagine leaving Iceland without a stop here first.  Blue Lagoon Iceland wait for me because I’ll be back and hopefully, in August!
