The plan was always to visit The Blue Lagoon at some point during our short break to Iceland; we just hadn’t pinpointed ‘when’.
But as the days sped past and we fell into whale watching, then Golden Circle touring, we realised that the only time we’d have available to go and soak in Iceland’s most famous thermal springs would be the morning before we flew out.
This wasn’t really a problem. The Lagoon is only 20 minutes from the airport, and is between Reykjavik and Keflavick ( the airport) so it was on our way. The only problem was that we were going to have to be very organised to get there.
Organised is not something our family does well or calmly; there is a lot of yelling and flapping when it’s necessary, but we can do it.
We arranged for the bus to pick us up at 10:30 am the next day but we were going to have to get the kids out of bed ( they were sleeping late despite the lack of darkness), get them dressed, feed them, get everything packed and be on the street ready to go.
