          Family of 4 - great time

          We stayed here for about 4 hours. Pre-purchasing tickets enabled us to bypass a long line. Once in the lagoon, it was less crowded. My wife had a 30 minute massage (about $90 Canadian). We had beer and the boys, 10 and 6, had slushy drinks. Under 9 kids wear arm floaties, as it is over 5 feet deep and the visibility is poor. The silica made great face masks to wear for our skin and we all had a great time.

          Clinical luxury

          You couldn't ask for a better location, set amidst the mossy lava fields with the surreal powder blue thermal water of the blue lagoon all around but for the luxury price tag, I expected a little more luxury rather than clinic.

          Although the view from the rooms are unparalleled, inside there were no toiletries provided, no mini bar, no wifi. Very basic and disappointing although the blankets were lovely.

          The private lagoon is something special, though again, the clinic side of the operation makes it feel a little more treatment than luxury. For such a premium price, I expected more.

          It was meant to be a night for aurora viewing so Calvin stepped out into the cold night at around 2:30 am. Kate slept right through. It was crisp and clear outside however it was still twilight and too bright to see any northern lights if they were occurring. Being the second day of official Icelandic summer meant that there was no longer any night …

          Got up around 8:00 and went down to breakfast. Afterwards we walked back into town to scout out possible restaurants for tonight. At 1:00 we left to go to the Blue Lagoon. Huge natural swimming hole fed with regular water and volcanic water. High temperature plus silica in water combine to make for relaxing experience. True Icelandic experience. Glad we did ...

It was a very interesting experience going to a local swimming pool where you are required to wash before putting on bathers as well as afterwards. We also went to the top of the Hallgrímskirkja church which gave excellent views over Reykjavik, to the ocean one direction and the snowy mountains the other.The next day we caught the ferry across to Videy Island, an island ...
