How do I get there?
There are many options in getting to the Blue Lagoon. Of course, you can organise a taxi or hire a car but the most popular way is by bus.
Most tourist companies in Iceland run a bus service in which you can purchase a ticket for in advance of arrival. This will include stating the time that you would like to leave for the Blue Lagoon and the time you would like to return to Reykjavik.
You will be picked up from the front door of your hotel if you have chosen this option by a mini bus or coach. If you have been picked up in a mini bus, you will more than likely be dropped off at the central bus station and then need to catch a bigger bus or coach to make your way to the lagoon. Alternatively, you can choose to be picked up at the central bust station but it’s easier to be picked up at your hotel especially if conditions are icy!
Be aware that it will take around one hour to reach the lagoon. I would recommend getting a ticket from a bus company which allows you to return at your leisure as you may get there and not want to leave!
You can also visit the Blue Lagoon from Reykjavik and then head straight onto the Airport. This is a great option if you’re stuck for time as time. There are places to store your luggage while you visit and hairdryers so you don’t have to get on the plane with a soggy mane.
I chose Rejkjavik excursions as they had competitive prices and a really flexible return schedule. You can book tickets here. But there are also other companies like Greyline and Extreme Iceland who also run the same service. Make sure you shop around and book a return ticket!
