This tour takes you through Reykjavik's suburbs on the way to the Blue Lagoon, giving you a chance to get a glimpse of the city before you drive through the rugged lava fields of the Reykjanes peninsula. The Blue Lagoon is located in the middle of a beautiful lava field that offers our guest an opportunity to experience this unique landscape. Stop for approximately 2 hours in order to indulge in the waters of the lagoon itself. For hygienic purposes, it is expected (in line with local customs) to take a shower without swimwear before entering the lagoon. Dressing rooms and showers are provided for men and women separately.
