Your perfect winter day in Iceland! Rejuvenate your body and soul with this combination of Iceland's two most popular winter activities, a visit to the Blue Lagoon and watching the northern lights!

The world-famous Blue Lagoon is Iceland’s No. 1 geothermal spa and one of the most popular attractions in the country. It is known worldwide for its beauty, stunning location in the vast, black lava field, and the healing powers of its mineral-rich water.

Floating in this warm, milky blue lake surrounded by green moss and rugged lava is a truly memorable experience, making it no wonder that it quickly became an ultimate bucket list item for every traveler.

The Aurora Borealis is a magnificent natural phenomenon that lights up Iceland’s night skies in the winter months. Catching a glimpse of the magical Aurora is another must-do for many travelers, why not combine these two wonderful experiences in one day?

Start your afternoon by visiting Iceland’s most famous attraction, the Blue Lagoon. It is considered by many to be a once-in-a-lifetime experience, as well as an unmissable part of one´s visit to Iceland. The Blue Lagoon offers lava and moss-filled scenery, state-of-the-art facilities, and a unique atmosphere.

Included in this combo is the Blue Lagoon Comfort Package, where you receive admission to the Blue Lagoon, a silica mud mask, the use of a towel, and a drink of your choice in the in-water bar.

After an amazing warm soak in the geothermal waters of the Blue Lagoon, you head back to Reykjavik on one of our new and comfortable coaches, offering you free Wi-Fi.

Upon arrival back in Reykjavik, you have some free time to relax, have dinner and wait for your next adventure in the evening, a hunt for the Northern Lights. Make sure to wear warm clothes!

Your adventure will begin in Reykjavík, where you will be picked up by a bus at your previously chosen pick-up location. You will get on board a comfortable new bus equipped with free Wi-Fi. You will quickly leave the city’s lights behind to head out into the darkness of the vast Icelandic countryside in search of the magical Northern Lights.

Your guide will tell you every fact about the science behind the Northern Lights and captivating stories and mythical folklore about Iceland and the Aurora Borealis. You will also be welcome to ask any questions about this natural phenomenon.

The locations visited during the northern lights tour vary from day to day, depending on weather conditions. Our Northern Lights team thoroughly studies the weather and aurora forecasts to find the best location to spot the lights each night. Because this tour is weather-dependent, sightings are not guaranteed. However, if you don‘t see any northern lights during this tour, you are welcome to join the tour again, free of charge.

FAQ & Important Information

How to dress on the Northern Lights tour?

You must dress well for the Northern Lights tour. Remember to dress according to the weather. Warm clothes, a waterproof jacket, and sturdy shoes are recommended. We recommend bringing thermal layers, a winter hat, scarf, and gloves, and wearing warm socks for colder days

Is pre-booking necessary?

Generally, entry to the Blue Lagoon is fully booked throughout the year. Pre-booking is essential to reserve your desired date and time and avoid the possibility that the lagoon will be sold out on the day you intend to visit.

Useful info during your Blue Lagoon visit

Your wristband: The wristband has multiple uses. Upon your arrival, you will be given a wristband. This colorful item is the key to your changing room locker. But it also functions as an in-water credit card. You can purchase drinks and refreshments anywhere in the spa area.

Your locker and changing rooms: You will receive a private locker. We recommend you store all your valuables-jewelry, shoes, cameras, etc. inside your locker. But be sure to check that your locker is properly locked before you walk away. Blue Lagoon is not responsible for any lost valuables.

Use hair conditioner: The seawater in the Blue Lagoon has high levels of silica. Silica is not harmful to hair. However, it can become stiff and difficult to manage if your hair gets wet. Therefore, we recommend that you apply conditioner to your hair before entering the lagoon–and leave it in your hair while in the lagoon. A complimentary conditioner is provided in the shower area.

Drink water and stay hydrated: You can become dehydrated in hot water. Therefore, we highly recommend that you drink plenty of water during your visit to the Blue Lagoon. This is particularly important for people who have diabetes or high blood pressure.

Prescription eyeglasses: If you have prescription eyeglasses and choose to wear them in the Blue Lagoon, be sure not to submerge them in the water. Silica—one of the Blue Lagoon’s geothermal treasures—can damage the lenses.

Contact lenses: Salt, minerals, and other elements found in the seawater of the Blue Lagoon can irritate your eyes. Therefore, if you wear contact lenses, we recommend removing them before entering the lagoon.

Are towels, bathrobes, or slippers provided?

Our two types of entry tickets—Comfort and Premium—include using a towel. However, the Premium ticket also includes the use of a bathrobe. If you have a Comfort ticket and want a bathrobe or slippers, you can rent them for ISK 1500 each. The slippers are single-use and yours to keep.

Also, note that Blue Lagoon shower gel and conditioner are complimentary for all guests and can be found in the shower facilities. There is also Blue Lagoon moisturizer in the drying area.

Children and the Blue Lagoon

The minimum age for using the Blue Lagoon is two years old. This is because children younger than two are highly sensitive to the water’s elevated mineral content. Children aged 13 and younger are admitted free when accompanied by a parent or guardian.

Children aged eight and younger must wear floaties. These are available at the entrance to the lagoon and can be used free of charge.

With the water depth reaching 1.4m/4.7ft., a parent or guardian must supervise all children using the Blue Lagoon. One adult can accompany a maximum of two children.

The Blue Lagoon is an otherworldly body of water. Guests come to experience a sense of wonder, and we encourage children to respect the sanctity and serenity of this enchanting environment.

Accessibility at Blue Lagoon

We offer various services and facilities for guests with special needs or disabilities. Our staff will support you as needed, but please be aware of the following items.


We offer disabled parking in the main parking lot. From there, the walk to the main complex takes approximately 5 minutes.

Wheelchair availability

  • Guests arriving without a wheelchair can borrow one from reception and/or the luggage storage building in the main parking lot.
  • Lagoon access: The lagoon can be accessed directly with specially designed wheelchairs.
  • The main complex: With elevators and electric door openers, the main complex is wheelchair accessible.
  • A personal assistant: Guests requiring help in the changing rooms or navigating the lagoon are given complimentary admission to cover the entry fee of an assistant. For bookings, please send an email to: contact@bluelagoon.com.
  • Changing rooms: On the ground floor, there is a special changing room—large enough to be shared with an assistant—available for guests requiring more space and privacy.
  • Shower chair: A shower chair is available upon request. We ask our guests to exercise caution as floors in the changing rooms and around the lagoon may be slippery.
  • Lagoon depth: The deepest part of the Blue Lagoon is 1.4m/4.7ft., but most areas are shallower. However, the bottom of the lagoon is naturally uneven, making caution imperative. An overview map of the lagoon, displaying depths and temperatures, is located by the lagoon entrance.

Are swimsuits required at the Blue Lagoon?

Bathing suits are worn in and around all areas of the bathing lagoon, including the sauna. You can bring your own, or rent them from reception. You can also rent towels and bathrobes. All are available in a range of sizes, from S to XL.

I don’t know how to swim, can I visit the Blue Lagoon?

You don’t need to know how to swim to visit the Blue Lagoon. There are many areas where the water is shallow enough that it doesn’t pose a danger to non-swimmers. At the lagoon’s edges, the depth is less than 0.8m/2.6ft—perfect for lounging and relaxing. The further into the water you go, the deeper it gets. Its greatest depth is 1.4m/4.7ft.

Children aged 2-8 years old are required to wear floaties which we provide. Adults may also request floaties.

To assure all guests’ safety, lifeguards are always on duty.
