Iceland's Blue Lagoon 101

Visions of Iceland’s dreamy, steamy, Blue Lagoon filled my head for weeks before my first trip to Reykjavik. This place was on my bucket list for years, and now that I’ve experienced Iceland’s most popular attraction, I’m sharing what you need to know beforehand to have a perfect visit.

GETTING THERE
The Blue Lagoon is about a forty-five minute drive from Reykjavik in a town called Grindavík. There are several motor coach companies you can book a roundtrip ticket with from the town center or the airport. Plan to arrive a little earlier than your entrance time, because the land around lagoon is a lava field, and you will want to leap out of the car and explore it! The rocky, moss-covered land looks like the craters of the moon, so if you ever had dreams of being an astronaut, this is your chance. I spent an hour walking around in awe of the terrain. It’s unique to Iceland, so you should really take time to appreciate it.
