What to do if you have little time : Blue Lagoon
It is a must when coming to Iceland : Keflavik International Airport is located on the Reykjanes peninsula. But this peninsula is also world famous for its relaxing Blue Lagoon. And it is true that at Blue Lagoon one feels a real pleasure to bathe in hot water while outside it is much cooler. There is of course not only Blue Lagoon on this peninsula but the other sights to see are less relaxing.
1 to 2 hours
50$ per person in 2017
Very crowdy pool with blue hot water around 104°F. Quite expansive entry : 50€ per person, towels included. It's a nice swimming, but, in our opinion, not worth the one, more friendly and less crowdy, in Jardbodin Vid Myvatn. That said, Blue Lagoon is a must when arriving or leaving Iceland.
Access : from Keflavik international airport, count 14,2 miles and from Reykjavik, 29,2 miles. On the main highway going from Keflavik to Reykjavik (road 41), turn at the sign indicating Blue Lagoon and drive for about 6,2 miles.
Seltun / Krisuvik
A few thousands feet
Geothermal field with boiling water, with great colors and a strong smell of rotten eggs ! The visit of this site can be done in around 30 minutes.
Access : On the main highway going from Keflavik to Reykjavik (road 41), going from Reykjavik to Keflavik, turn left on road 42 and follow the sign indicating Krisuvik. You'll be arrive in 13 miles.
