Share post:

The Blue Lagoon in Iceland was completely closed in November 2023 due to a volcanic eruption on the Reykjanes Peninsula. In January 2024, Iceland’s most famous geothermal pool is once again open and welcoming visitors.

All pools, spas, the Lava café and restaurant, Silica Hotel, Retreat Hotel, as well as the Michelin-starred Moss restaurant within the spa complex, are operational again.

The Blue Lagoon was initially closed on November 9, 2023, due to volcanic activity. It briefly reopened in December and closed again. Now, everything is back in operation.

Keflavik International Airport, located on the Reykjanes Peninsula, is operational with no disruptions to the schedule, and flights are operating as usual.

Currently, the Blue Lagoon is open daily from 9 am to 8 pm. Additional barriers have been constructed for the resort’s infrastructure to protect against potential volcanic activity.

In 2012, National Geographic recognized the Blue Lagoon in Iceland as one of the 25 wonders of the world. The uniqueness of the Blue Lagoon lies in its exceptional geothermal seawater, which forms this reservoir. There is nothing like it anywhere else in the world. The water is rich in silica, algae, and minerals, providing moisture and healing properties for the skin.
