Our guide to Blue Lagoon and Golden Circle Experience
The Golden Circle tour allows you to visit Iceland’s most stunning sights, starting with the Geysir geothermal area where the Strokkur geyser shoots a column of water up to 30 meters into the air every few minutes.
The tour continues to Gullfoss waterfall, created by the river Hvítá, which tumbles and plunges into a crevice some 32 m (105 ft.) deep, flowing down into a wide curved three-step "staircase".
Your itinerary also includes the historical and geological wonder that is Thingvellir National Park, listed on UNESCO´s world heritage list.
After an amazing day of exploring, head onwards to the Blue Lagoon via Reykjavik for a soak in the warm and comfortable Blue Lagoon, one of the wonders of the world.
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, a unique atmosphere and silica masks that make your skin extra firm, yet incredibly soft!
Included in this combo is the Blue Lagoon Comfort Package where you receive entrance to the Blue Lagoon, a silica mud mask, use of a towel, and a drink of your choice.
Departure to the Blue Lagoon follows the end of the Golden Circle tour from BSI Terminal at 6.00 pm with entry to the Blue Lagoon set for 7.00 pm.
Daily, year round.
