We arrive at KEF on Monday, September 24 at 6:25am and plan to go to the Blue Lagoon before heading into Reykjavík in the afternoon. We will not have a rental car and will probably book a package thru Reykjavík Excursions or Grey Line. What time should we make our booking for? We will be checking luggage. I understand if we arrive too early, we may not be allowed in until our booked time but what happens if we are delayed and are late arriving at the lagoon? Do we lose our spot/money?
Here is the notice on the Blue Lagoon website: The ticket is valid only at the date and time selected in the booking process and clearly stated on the ticket you received after completing your purchase. If you don’t arrive at the pre-booked date and time, Blue Lagoon cannot guarantee availability
So you are taking a chance if you don't get there on time (although your chances are better in late September than they are during the summer). If you are arriving at 6:25 am, then I would probably allow at least two hours before your booking. It's a fairly quick process going through passport control and customs, and the airport is small but you never know what will happen. I think the bookings are every hour and it opens at 8 am so I would shoot for 9 am to be safe.
Thank you for your reply. We have never flown through KEF so we were not sure how much time to allow. I’d rather have to wait a bit then risk loosing the experience so 9am it will be.
This information is helpful for me also. My daughter and I will arrive at 6:30 AM on July 22nd and will go straight to the Blue Lagoon on a shuttle. What I can’t find anywhere is how to purchase tickets to the lagoon without booking a tour. Please tell me if you know! Thank you so much!!
