Our tips

Best time to visit the Blue Lagoon

The blue lagoon is open daily, all year round, though early closing hours may be applied on public holidays. We advise you therefore to check the opening hours on the official website when planning your visit.

Peak hours are in the morning, from 10am to about 2pm, with lunchtime being the busiest period of the day. If you arrive at this time, it’s very probable there will be a queue to enter. To guarantee a queue-free visit, you may prefer to book your tickets online. That will give you priority access with little or no waiting.

In the afternoon the crowds get smaller, and you’ll have a quieter experience. People often plan the visit for half a day combining a couple of hours at the lagoon and a dinner in the restaurant on site.

Evenings are generally the best time to visit Blue Lagoon if you want to avoid crowds. There are few visitors left in the evening even during the busiest periods of the year. That could be a great option to visit the site, especially in summer months, with longer opening hours.

Blue Lagoon is more crowded during the summer months (May - September) than during the winter months. The peak period falls in July-August (the biggest crowds & the highest rates are to be expected). Winter months are the calmest, especially December (excluding the holiday period) and January.

Tuesdays and Wednesdays tend to be the least crowded days of the week throughout the year. If you have a flexible schedule, arriving in the afternoon and staying until closing time would most likely be the best solution to completely avoid crowds and get some privacy while relaxing at the most visited site in Iceland.

The average time most visitors spend is 3-4 hours with about 2 hours at the lagoon itself. There’s a restaurant, a cafe and a bar in case you get hungry, but it’s highly recommended you book the restaurant in advance if you arrive in high season.
